General thoughts
The Gillette Rubie comes from Russia and is similar in all ways to the Nacet with the exception of Nacet offering 4 shaves and Rubie only two. Sharpness is right up there with the best. Smooth like Permasharp for me. But for whatever reason, longevity is not there for me. I use it as my travel blade as I don't mind chucking a blade after a shave or two. This one is tougher to find than most.

Sharpness
I find it to be one of the sharper blades available. Similar to Nacet or Silver Blues

Longevity
Interestingly short lived for me. Two shaves and it's done.

Shaving Smoothness
Very smooth

Value
At $20 per 100 and a life span of two shaves it falls flat

Quality
The grind seems perfect. Printing is great. Blade to blade consistency has been on point.

Packaging
Cardboard tuck with wax dotted paper
