So- I am the only one I know locally that is active in wetshaving with DE. I got a standard sample pack of blades, but nothing was all that awesome. Bought a couple of one off packs to see if they would do the trick.

Then I struck gold, or iridium...
I bought half a card of the Polsilver SI from the enabler. I LOVE these blades. LOVE. I would marry the blades if I could.

Now, I have no one locally to slip a pack of these to and say "try these, you will love them."

Instead I decided I would PIF two packs, one pack to two different people (ideally folks who have not tried these blades before)

All you have to do is post "I'll try 'em. Maybe I will love them too" I will let this run a week and pick two posters.

Knowing how I roll there will be an extra or two in each package.

I'll try 'em. Maybe I will love them too. I always love trying new blades - so I'm in Smile

The only possible issue I foresee is having to pay someone though the nose to ship me a regular supply later Tongue

I've tried the old Super Iridium's, but not these. If that's too close to these as to make me ineligible, that's fine. Great PIF either way!

This is not horseshoes or hand grenades- close does not count. Of course you are in!

If you are picked, let me know what you think compared to the old SI's. I never used them and when I came around to thinking about them they are OOS or $$$ for me.

I can find f2f meet ups for all my other hobbies and we commonly give away and trade at the meets. I don't know anyone in my neck of the woods that is into wetshaving as a hobby so this is my small give back to the larger interwebs community.

I have too many other blades that are new to me to try (both se and de), so please don't count me in. Great PIF, and i'll have to order some of these the next time I inevitably cave in and make an order.

Not in as I just got 50 from Phil a couple weeks ago. I didn't use many of the SI's but they sure seem the same to me! But I certainly recommend them, sharp and my first 1 lasted something like 13 shaves. Probably could have gone more too!

I'm in the same boat as you. I just burned through a sampler pack, and no single brand struck me as "The One." I've heard a lot of good things about the SIs, so "I'll try 'em. Maybe I will love them too."
