RueTheDay said:Ok, I have both the eBay mystery Personnas and the Israeli Personnas from letterk in front of me. Definitely not the same blade. Also, the eBay mystery Personnas do not look like the American Personnas they sell in Wal Mart either.
I did a little research on American Safety Razor (the owners of the Personna brand). They have three manufacturing facilities - one in the US (Tennessee), one in Israel, and one in Mexico.
The eBay mystery Personnas come in a package with instructions in English and SPANISH.
I think the "mystery" is solved.

Hopefully I can get the real story on Tuesday.
I for one want to thank you for your initiative in this. Not only are your efforts clearing up an "issue" that I helped create but, you have managed to bring the forums to the attention of a major company in the grooming industry and as such the forums may be a source of information and influence to them in future product offerings.
