You can't help it Nikos, your statements all along have shown a leaning towards BIC. Perhaps a tinge of nationalistic pride, I don't know. My intent was to purchase BIC blades 
and use them, all 100. But that's not possible. I have a complete and open mind to ALL things. I have used MANY BIC disposable thru the years, all were fine.
I even found one in my travel bag yesterday while "spring cleaning". Used it today, had a great, perfect shave. Now, I don't know when or where it was made, I do know it was 
a very good shave. I included two photos, I colored in the BIC logo in case you couldn't see it the first time. BUT(big but) that still doesn't mean that my BIC blades are not the
worst blades I ever used and I've been shaving 54 years..... Winky

Soooo, don't be angry at me, it is not my fault these blades are so bad.....I'm really a nice guy, who got stuck with bad blades..... Cheers

It's pretty easy for you to make accusations and assumptions about people you don't know, isn't it?

Things Zipper said about me:
  • I can't be fair.
  • I'm leaning towards a multinational company.
  • I may have a nationalistic pride.
My answers:
  • I'm a member here since March 2014. I've made too many reviews. All are 100% honest, based on my experience. From time to time I receive PMs from members asking for an opinion. I always say my honest opinion. I feel more than happy when they follow my advice and send me a message that I was right. This is the best reward you can get. I was approached by artisans in the past where they offered me products, full and samples to make reviews. If I was interested in a product I always said that I would like to buy them in order to be 100% honest. If I wasn't that interested, I kindly refused the offer. I never received anything for free from companies to creaty hype.
  • I am leaning towards no company. I never helped or promoted a maker or company on purpose. I've never been what I call close to a businessman in the hobby.
  • I don't have a nationalistic pride regarding shaving products. I haven't bought anything from a Greek vendor since 2016, I don't have good relations with any Greek vendor. I remember once than I visited a vendor here in 2015 and he got mad because I didn't say the things he wanted me to say about a product he was selling and also said that I harmed his business and the connection he had with the maker of that product. Crazy stuff. There are some Greek artisans that started selling products the last years and I don't have tried them because I don't really care. If I buy a Greek product, I will make a review only if it is worth it.
    If I like a product, no matter its origin, I will say it. If I don't like it, I won't recommend it to fellow shavers. Pretty simple.

I'm trying to be as honest as I can. I don't need anyone to tell me what I am. 

At least TSN is a fine community and most people are true gentlemen. 

It's a shave for Christ's sake. People get mad because you share a different opinion and dare to say it.

Unfortunately they did not work out great for me either. I have only used them in my 37c, but I found them to be tugging and struggling with my beard. I really wanted to like these as I am a lover of most things greek. We are all different. Technics, facial hair, soaps, water etc. I will give them a try in some more razors though. On a side note, I don’t find the Gillette Nacet’s to be all that great either, and they seems to get a lot of praise around in the forums. Different...

Another variable.

There appears to be more than one version of this particular blade in circulation.

Wish I read this post before buying I bought a hundred of these. I agree with zipper 100% regarding these blades. This blade is absolutely and without doubt the worst I have ever used in my 25+ years of shaving. The way this blade irritated me with it’s pulling and scraping was so unbearable that it makes the term uncomfortable an understatement. I’m not too upset about the wasted money, but the horrible experience in trying to shave with these blades was torture.

If you like the blades, use them.  If you don't, dump them and move on to another blades.  This thread reminds me of the old Clint Eastwood movie, the good, the bad, the ugly, and we've seen all three is this thread.

It has officially run its course.  It is now closed.
