I ordered some blades from tryablade.com and one of them was Voskhod. From what I gather they are made in Russia. Last night was my first shave with one and it was probably the worst blade I've tried to date. I must however say that I did have a one day stubble but with my Feather or SuperMax blades it's never a problem. I only shaved about 4 strokes before I gave up on the blade, there was a lot of tug when shaving. When running my finger across the blade it does not feel sharp at all. I will however try the blade again tonight to give it another chance and will post the results.
