Item Description

This is a Turkish made blade and is considered the premier blade in Turkey.
They are sharp like a Swede or an English made Wilkinson but very reasonably priced if you can find them. In terms of a shave they are nice and smooth and are actually very close to the Swede's in overall performance, just not quite as smooth but there is not much in it. I have a very coarse beard and will only use the sharper blades and these are great for me. To put them into context I find Derby's dull and ineffective and these are a significant step up.
They come in two types of packaging, the plastic boxes shown which are the same as Derby boxes and also the little cardboard boxes like the Gillette 7 o'clocks ( which I prefer for environmental reasons ).
If you are mourning the loss of Swede's then I suggest you give these a try, they are an excellent substitute.

(Edit) I have been reliably informed that these blades are now owned by P&G and produced in St Petersburg Russia. I can also tell you that they are on a par, if not better than Swede's and I never thought I would say that.

This review is for the Russian version only.

A little on the expensive side, but well worth it for an outstanding performer- smooth. sharp and comfortable. Without question, the best blade I've used. Highly recommended.

Been religiously trying all the "top" blades in my assortment of razors (EJ89, Futur Chrome, Merkur 38c and Feather) and can report this blade is the most consistent performer. Reasonably priced (abt $26 shipped to US) and a smooth, generally non-irritating shave. Best combo for me for BBS is the Futur, most comfortable the EJ89. excellent blade.
