Perma Sharp was a brand of blades I received with my Fatip. I had never used them until tonight. I think Perma-Sharp is a strange name for a blade that is on par with Voskohd. But with that comparison, I received a very smooth and irritation free shave. I would throw Sputnik in the mix as a similar blade with a similar shave. I have 20 or 30 of these Perma-Sharp blades so it looks like I will be using them for quite some time.

Sorry but I did not catch the irony associated with the name Perma-Sharp, as you state that these blades were on par with Voskhod blades.  Are you saying that Voskhods are not sharp?  Does the name Perma-Sharp connote something dull and rough?  Just curious, but I agree that both of these blades are excellent [assuming that is what you meant.]  Enjoy!
Cheers,
Ted

Yes I was saying they are not particularly sharp, although they give me a very smooth and trouble free shave.

Are these blades by Sharp?

I have some blades called 'Durablade' by Sharp.

They are Swiss quality in chromium.

I received ten of these blades.

Perma-Sharp was originally made in Turkey years ago. Gillette bought the factory and moved production to St. Pete, Russia. It's a top shelf blade nowadays as are all made in Russia IMHO. The aforementioned Sputnik is a fantastic blade and I rate it a notch above Voskhods and Astra SP. It is easily one of the smoothest blades I have ever used.
A common greeting was 'Well, Gillette, how's the razor?' If I had been technically trained, I would have quit.

I tried one before, but it reminded me too much of feathers so I swapped it out for a more mild blade. YMMV, of course!
