Anyone who ordered these wanna give a report? Do we have a winner???
WTG?? WTG????? THIS IS SPARTA!!!!!
I traded a pack of regular Polsilvers to Cfender for some of the "regular" Super Iridiums and compared it to the "Polsilver" Super Iridiums. I have only used one blade of each but they appear to be identical to me. Both are great blades, but not that much different/better than other high quality blades like the 7 O'clock yellow/blue, Polsilver, Gillette Silver Blue, Med Prep, etc. I am glad I bought them though, but don't think I will be stockpiling them.
Will have to keep track of this thread. If it is true that they are still around, there will be some very happy folks.

The blades that this seller is selling are the same as the ones that are being sold on this Polish site:
http://www.superkoszyk.pl/product-po...-x-5-szt-.html, which appear to be in stock. As far as I can tell, they are just repackaged versions of the original St. Petersburg version of the blade.
i just purchased abunch of them, when they arrive i will split a pack up for other B&B members to try.
Everyone has a photographic memory, some just don't have film
Right on Gordy, I have been wondering about the polsilver stainless, would be great to try one. I hear they are of high quality.
I just took the plunge on these. I have about 400 of the original St Pete SI's and a few hundred of the Polsilvers. I'll do a comparison
I shaved with the same blade again this morning (12 hours later) with the same result. I probably got a little better shave since it was only 12 hours from the last shave. I also had better lather going with my Kells Original Double Aloe this morning. Still fairly new to wet shaving with a DE razor.
This seller and the razor blade are both legit! Used them twice this week and shaves were flawless and sharp. I will compare side by side with my original Super Iridiums but I have no doubt that these are of equal value.
Who are the vendors that can supply these Polsilver Super Irdidiums to the US?
Bummer - now that he can ship to Canada he's out of stock! I'm waiting for the next shipment. :)
cfender: look up thread and you'll find him.
Sorry for the slow response, I was out of town when the blades arrived. I did a comparison where I changed out only the blade over a couple of days and as far as I can tell they are the exact same blade. The appearance of the blade is identical as well. The only difference seems to be the packaging.
I do not have a microscope to compare the edges, and I don't have nearly as much experience wet-shaving as others around here, but I am completely happy with them.
Mine arrived yesterday. Used one this morning. Sharp and smooth, multipass BBS. They certainly seem legit to me.
Funny if these are discontinued...as these were my Gillette Blue alternatives
