Last week I received a razor I bought on eBay. The seller included 20 blades from the Dollar General Store. I almost tossed them immediately. But when I tried it, I have to say it was as good as many of my favs-at $1/5 pack!! I've only had 2 shaves with them, but they were smooth, painless, no irritation -even ATG on my neck. Now, I'm so confused-I've got probably five years worth of blades that make up 90% or more of the popular blades that BBers coo about, and these cheapos are just as good as many of them.
The blades look identical to those discussed on earlier threads concerning Personnas from Walmart and Walgreens and the like. The cardboard packaging says super stainless platinum chrome as did the others. The blades have no marking except for those two black arrows present on the Personnas. Also, the blade ejector is the same-plane white with these clumsy plastic strips that must be depressed to release the blade. What is really confusing is the cardboard that the blades come attached to say they are made by Gillette; says nothing about Personna. Does not say what country. Did Gillette buy Personna? A link is provided below for those who are curious. The last link to Walmart has them labeled as Personna.
