I just came across these, and was wondering if anyone knows if it’s a new blade. Or is it just another new box?

Says-Personna X-series - NEW! - Platinum Coated stainless steel for comfort & durability - Ultimate sharpness for incredibly close, single stroke shaving - Individually wrapped w/easy dispense carton - Can be used in most safety & straight razors Effortless precision for fades, tapers & artistic design plus Great for quick clean up of necklines and sideburns.

Thanks ,
Ron

Damn, I was hoping that the packaging might show where they're made.

I figure if it's the Israeli plant then they're "reds"

It’s been some time that I have used a DE from my SE.
Does Personna have just a platinum stainless Steel?
Or is that fancy name from there Blue Lab? Comfort coated stainless Steel.
Red(Israel) say platinum chrome super stainless Steel.

Still surprised that a google search had no reviews or info, just places do buy.

My OP is a copy and paste from a sellers site also. Thought also weird I could not find it on personna site. Normally anything NEW would pop or be a featured AD.

So someone in another save forum bought some and tried. Says that they feel sharper than the normal LABs. So it sounds like a real new blade.
Here is his pic of the blade.

Personna Red( the one in the blue 10-blade pack) is a very good mild blade. I have a stock of these. Not very sharp but it gives good shaves, especially with an aggressive razor. The one made in the USA is a lot sharper I'd say, but I found it a bit harsh. I have to try them again. I have not tried the new X-series.

Everyone is different.  When in the "advanced novice shaving category", I was not impressed with the Reds.  I tried a few Med Preps and then purchased a 250 qty box on a really good sale ($.18 each) and happy with the blade.  I may have a Red left and will try again.  

Would love seeing some comparisons.  I have enough blades now where any new purchase will be a 5 pack.
