I just tried an Israeli made twin blade (no lubra strip), probably from Bond Israeli rather than ASRCO aimed at the French market distributed by Reynolds European (Scudo brand). This must have been just short of 20 years old. I got a good shave, and gave it a try with an original Trac II followed by switching to a Schick Comfort Plus (Atra clone). I may head back and buy more for €2.50 for 10. I was expecting to be cut as the cartridge head is as big as some Indian made twin blade heads. It felt a lot safer in the Comfort Plus. Finished the retro shave witha splash of Old Spice.
