I tried to take a nice picture for you guys, I hope you like it.
As many of you know Iridium Supers are very popular, sadly they where discontinued not so long ago. I was lucky enough to of been able to purchase 100 pack before they where all gone, many of us have been looking for a replacement ever since.
I have no Idea what ever happened to the Iridium Super Brand and why it's no longer produced, but I suspect it just has to do with brand renewal rights but no one really seems to know.
I have been reading may posts that Polsilver's are very good and many speculate that it's the same blade but many of us had been unable to try them because you simply can't find them. If you compare the Super Iridium and the Polsilver blade there are several similarities, it leads me to believe that they are manufactured by the same company under the same standards, for all we know they may very well be the same blade.
Polsilver's state "Stainless" and Iridium Supers "Extra Stainless" Now does that mean they are made out of different steel ? or just a different coating that prevents staining.
Either way Polsilver's behave EXACTLY the same. Most likely it's the same edge grind. I could not tell the difference. Today was my first shave with one and it was very sharp and smooth just as our beloved Iridium Supers. I used my trusty Futur for initial testing just because last time I shaved with an Iridium (last week) I used the Futur, Settings where 3 and 2.5 I only had to do 2 passes, 1 AXTG followed by 1 XTG and touch ups.
