Red Personna Israeli
A very comfortable and close shave. I used the first blade two weeks. I only changed it because WCS needs to make a living too. I slapped in a Feather. Also a great shave, a tad closer, but a blade that won't last more than a few days. The Red Personna Israeli might be the best value out there and it is a great shave, too.
Are these legit Personnas? I'm puzzled. I assume they are, but they performed AWFULLY. I am switching to Personna Platinums from Gillette Silver Blue double edge blades and am completely disappointed. I've used Personnas in the past and I have vivid memories of them providing a fantastic shave. These, however, were absolutely terrible. For example, I had my last Gillette Silver Blue blade in my safety razor (one which had already worn down from 4-5 shaves), and I got a far closer shave from that doing ONE PASS than I got from TWO PASSES from a brand new Personna the next time out. I'm dumbstruck because my memories of using a Personna blade in the past are so different, and the reviews on here would indicate that they are fantastic as well. Sadly, this was not my experience, and I will likely be trashing these blades and just replacing them with something else. :( The Personnas get the job done I suppose, but in my opinion, there are FAR better blades out there and these are nowhere near the top-tier, S-Class safety razor blades I recall them being. Very disappointing.
I have used about 10 different brand names of blades. Personna, made in Isreal, are at the top of the heap as they hold an edge longer than other brands.
Well wortth it.
Excellent razor. Smooth shave, Each edge is good for one week of shaving.
Best blades ever
I have been wet shaving for a few years now. With my sensitive skin, I have to change blades after each shave. These blades give me the shave I am looking for. Closer than any cartage razor. Plus unlike the other blades out there, it does not tear up my neck which is my most sensitive area. The fact they cost less than many others makes them the best.
