I have read that these are the same blades, just in differents containers based on where they are sold. Is that correct?

That is correct. The first one (the blacks) have five blades. The second one (the yellows) have ten blades.

Well son of a b...

During my recent blade swap I received 6 packs of these from one member, not realizing that these things had only 5 blades in them.

Sure enough, I just opened a pack, and only 5 blades. Seems like I was taken for a fool!!!

Feather changed their packages several years ago. The blades are all the same.

It has been a while though, if you feel taken, you should state your concern to the trading party.

Oh no! Did the other guy indicate in any way that the black pack contained ten blades?

Cool thread - I wasn't sure if those two Feather packages were the same blades until now. I always bought the yellow ones and wondered if the black packaging was a different blade type.

Feathers in the yellow packs are now coming in 5 and 10 count packs.

Gents:

As I spoke to one feather distributor for the US. They told me both are the same. They told me that in Japan for the 5pkg they use the black concept but for he 10's the use the yellow. That was two years or so ago. But anyway, now I see both in both meaning 5 or 10 blades in both concepts but they are the same blades anyway.

My prefer blade, my second one is Polsilver Super Iridium.

Thanks
Ken
