    Not red Personna, blue. Not Israeli, but American Platinum Chrome.

    I just bought a 100 pack of Personna blades! What makes it unusual is that these are American made Persona platinum chrome blades. I have never heard of such a thing, but they are available from the Personna store front on Amazon. I used the Rockwell 6C on plate 4. I put the overall shave...

    Finding the Grail... well the blade actually

    Into my second week of DE shaving with my Rockwell C6, and I have been wrestling with a 100 pack of Personna blues. My shaves with the Rockwell blades that came with the razor are fine, as they appear to be a mild blade, but I have tried 4 Personna blades, and they can be quite mean. Using the...
