It took damn near a month for my Ebay order to arrive, but arrive it did and fortunately the two tucks I ordered are authentic!! I have had three fantastic shaves on one so far and last year I took one to 6 or 7 shaves before tossing it if I recall. IMO it is a better blade than the Astra SP, however that is entirely subjective. The problem is that the Internet is rife with fake blades so one has to be careful and even then it's still a matter of luck probably.

I assume I can link to Ebay if it's not an auction. If incorrect then remove the link please Moderator:

A common greeting was 'Well, Gillette, how's the razor?' If I had been technically trained, I would have quit.

Hey that's a good price for the blades, the best price I could of find for those is $25 for 100 blades. I see that you like them, is the link you provided to be the place where you bought them?

Interesting... Thank you very much for posting that. It will likely benefit a lot of people if the blades are that good.

The blades at the link were $5.80 per pack of 10.  They are also sold on AliExpress for $5.31, a little less.

Wow, AliExpress has a lot of different Chinese blade brands.  I did not realize there are so many.  It looks like traditional wetshaving never died out in the Middle Kingdom.

Aliexpress does NOT accept Paypal. Caveat emptor.

That's about as safe as giving your card to a drug addict. Rolleyes
