Has anyone tried these?  I've seen them online, but not in the local Costco stores.

The carts look a lot like a Mach 3.

I saw a comment somewhere that the blades are made in Germany and the handles in China.

These don't appear to be Edgewell Easy Fit 3's, and they definitely are not Caliber 3's. I would say they are a new Feintechnik/Harry's Germany cart. Their first innovation in 11 years.

Interesting.  As far as I know, these are the first Costco branded carts.  At $20.00 plus $3.00 shipping for 14, it works out to $1.64 per cart.  The price is right.  With the marketing power of Costco,  these represent serious competition for Gillette and Schick.

Well it all depends on the performance surely?
The Harry's five blade is less expensive as private label in Europe, but it's behind Schick/Wilkinson Sword, Edgewell private label, Gillette and even Dorco. The only cart it is better than is the Bic 5 cart.

I haven't tried them but will subscribe in case someone does - I love just about anything Kirkland Signature. They always pick quality products to put their name on.

I was in a Miami Costco on Sunday, and they don't have them available in the store.

We'll look forward to your report on the blades. Now we know that they are appearing in stores.

package is about 7 by 11.  with 14 total blades.  handle is quite generic but functions well.  $19.99 for the kit.  used it immediately and it was what I expected.  not a 200 dollar razor but rather one that does the job.  not as thick as mach 3s so a little more maneuverability. the handle/blades are specific to each other.  mach 3 won't fit but for $1.43 each I couldn't be happier.  I use for final buffing and clean up .  funny how my mach 3's are on sale for almost the same amount now that this razor is released. still will continue to use se, de, and cartridges variety spice of life and such.

Got them a few days ago at Costco. Not really impressed. Blades cut, but not like Mach 3 or even my Dorco catridges. Cut myself several times which doesn't happen with my other blades. I always like Costco signature items, but these just aren't that good in my opinion. Oh well, live and learn...Dan

Thanks for the review! Remember, it's Costco so if you don't like them you can return them. It's the only way Costco will figure out they aren't good blades.
