The Israeli Personna Reds are out of stock everywhere.  These are my favorite blades.  Have they been discontinued?

No, they aren't.

Those do not look like what I normally buy, Phil.  The packaging I usually buy is red, hence Personna Red.  Where did those go?

I don't know if they're discontinued or not, but the 99 cent store near me has tons of them.

Then you buy the ones packaged in Mexico. The ones pictured are the same blade but packaged in Israel for the European market.

If you really want the ones in the red package, contact David at Razor Blades & More. He is (or used to be) the distributor. If he doesn't have them, he would at least know the story on whether or not that packaging is discontinued.

Once you get the story from David will you post back? I have 100 of the blue UK package and 40 of the red, but I'm curious.

I am following this as well.  I believe that the blue boxes at Bullgoose are the same, because several of the vendors say so.

But I would love to have a couple of guys that have specifically compared the two tell me so.

Thanks in advance.

Mr. H, if you are in the USA PM me your address and I'll send you both so you can see for yourself.

I also find the 99c store Israeli blades are damn close. Good to keep in mind when traveling.

I've used both the Red packaged Personna and the blue packed Personna Blades that Phil shows in his photo for many years and can confirm that they are indeed the same blade.  Personna over the years has offered many different packaging schemes, yet underneath they are the same Israeli Personna Platinum Chrome blades.
