Gillette Rubie

Interesting! They're using the old Rubie font from back in the 1950s (or whenever). The Russian ones are labeled "Gillette Rubie Plus". One is stainless and the other platinum. So there are two different versions of the blade out there.

Or at least two different blades they've slapped the name onto.
 
I just received some Rubie blades today. They look identical to the pack you have in the upper left corner, as you can see the packaging design is different from the bottom 2. The blade has a weird color sheen look to it and the ink is blotchy/patchy at best which concerns me they may be fake. If so it's a huge loss as it was extremely expensive to get them shipped to me. Can you shed any light on your experience before I attempt a shave with one. Thanks.
 
Here are some pics of my Gillette Rubie's recently purchased here in Cebu, Philippines at a local supermarket (USD 1.88 for a 6 blade tuck). I know they are legitimate because they say "Genuine Rubie Blades" on the front of the tuck and on each blade wrap. They also have one of those funny shiny stickers (bottom left) on the front of the tuck :c9:.

Look at the word "Caution" on the back of my tuck and on the back of BigD's tucks.

These blades work well for me on my peach fluff whiskers and elephant hide skin in a Ming Shi 2000S adjustable DE razor.

Yeah yours look legit. Nice dark clear legible ink, glue dots which mine are missing, blade color looks uniform. The outer package of mine is different in that hologram mine says Gillette while yours says Rubie. I spent over $100 USD for fake blades, very disappointed... Thank you for posting photos.

You have any pictures of yours?
 
Had high hopes for this blade. Figured it would be similar to dark blue Gillette Platinum, but i couldnt finish shave #1 with it. May have been a bad one, but havent gone back to try another yet. Maybe ill try again.
