My father-in-law sent me some blades to try from Armenia. There were some Rapiras, Voskhods, Bic Chrome. But as I was going through what he sent, I found something interesting. It turns out that he had a few NOS Astra SP blades from when he used to use a DE razor. I opened the blade package, and the blade was marked Astra SP as expected, but then said "Made is Czechoslovakia". The regular Astra SP is my go to blade, I really like them. But I like these NOS blades BETTER!! They are awesome!!

That's awesome, how do they perform vs the modern Astra blades?

Also, do they have the annoying 4 dots of wax on one side as well? Dodgy

They still have the wax, and (if it could be possible) perform better IMHO than the modern ones. I am at work at the moment, but will post a pic or two as soon as I can.

They sound like great blades, it is hard to beat a modern Astra.
