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.
