Just a quick heads up : I shaved with this "new" blade today , after shaving last week with the old Polsilver blade , and for me , there are not differences at all : smooth , sharp and very comfortable to use , like the old Polsilver and even , Super Iridiums.This , with the Astras and Gillette Bleau (sold in France) are my favorite blades ,specially when I use my Merkur razor and Edwin Jagger/Muhle.

Well done for the "guys" at the St Petesburg factory (yes, belongs to Gillette , but thanks).
BTW, didnt we hear "rumours" about that factory being close down like a year ago or so?Huh

I've been using these blades for the past month and a half and have been very pleased. Top quality blade for sure.

I was PIF'd a tuck of them a short time ago. I've shaved through two of them, and they are fantastic in my Gillette NEW. A very smooth blade.

Great blades so far in a couple razors I have tried- smooth, sharp, and predictable.

They are my go to blades. I recently acquired a few PolSilvers, but haven't had a chance to try them yet. But form other reviews, it seems they're both the same. Thanks Teiste for once again confirming!

Loaded up in any of my Slims I can get 6 good clean smooth shaves. Any more is just flirting with disaster.

I like them in my milder razors, for me they are great in everything from a Tech to a SuperSpeed and even the NEWs.
