RE: Personna Red Packaging
I gave up trying to figure this stuff out. I think that double edge blades is not a major business for American Safety Razor, so they play three card monte with our heads.

Gotta love Personna marketing here in the USA and abroad.

I have a pack of the reds on the bottom with the Oval logo and Spanish Writing on them. The pack states they are Made In Israel. I believe they have Spanish because they are intended for the North American market. Btw they are an awesome blade.

Yep, those were made in Israel and packaged in Mexico as far as I know.

RE: Personna Red Packaging
How do these compare to the Labs?

RE: Personna Red Packaging
The reds are very good compared to labs, and certainly worth giving them a shot...I'd say just slightly more sharp, slightly less smooth, but still quite forgiving...I don't usually use blades for more than three shaves, but I still feel I could go longer with the red blades, while the labs are noticeably less sharp after three shaves(2-pass w/touch up)... I still think the Med Preps have a slight edge in both departments...I'm finishing an experiment to test the differences if any between Labs and Med preps...Something I just have to finally test for my own conclusion.

RE: Personna Red Packaging
Oddly enough I got some plain Personna blades in a red package from my Dollar Tree for 10-pack for 59 cents and they shaved just like my Reds I got at West Coast...too bad they only had 4-packs... the blade itself only has two small arrows on each side...wish they had more!!

Sad I wish my local Dollar store had them. Oh well, I bought a pack of the UK ones. Some people claim they are different from the reds here in the States. I plan on comparing the two. And if they are the same WCS has 100 UK Reds for 12 bux.

RE: Personna Red Packaging
They are the same blade. Remember though that blades are made in batches of millions & batches may vary, especially if you're comparing stocks from the 90's & 2013 made blades. Because these are distributed in bulk/whole container loads some blades may take years to sell.

However the most likely reason why some can tell a difference between the red box & UK versions is that the greatest variable is the guy holding the razor, just saying.
