I picked these up at Dollar General but haven't been able to bring myself to try them. I had seen they could be Korean made Dorco blades or make in Israel made Personna. Anyone have experience with these?

It doesn’t look like the typical arrow stamp I’ve seen on Personna made blades. Don’t know anything about Dorco.

Gotcha. Thanks. I'm not very knowledgable about all the blades out there. I just had read that in a forum somewhere.

If you post a photo of the back of the card, it might help us determine who made them.

Years ago the DG blades were marked “Made in Korea”, the ones I had access to anyway. Don’t know if they’re still the same. Dorco are generally seen as on the duller side of the scale. I don’t have any issues with any of the blades Dorco offers except only getting one or two shaves per blade, however they tend to be priced appropriately so no biggie in my book.

This is what The back looks like. They are made in Vietnam.

Yeah, these are made in Vietnam. I used Dorco cartridge razors and really had no problem with them other than cost. Even though they were cheaper than the other brands.

Made in Vietnam means they're not rebranded Personna.  However, they may be rebranded Dorco.  Dorco blades were made in South Korea, but are now made in Vietnam.

Yeah, it seemed the information that I came across when I first got them was leaning towards Dorco. I did used to use their cartridge razors which I didn’t really think we’re too bad. I do remember buying their DE blades and I don’t really remember if they were particularly remarkable. One day I’ll give these a try.
