I bought the 250 from the seller on ebay 2 weeks ago and they are legit Wizmets made in Russia. I feel they are better and smoother than PoliSilver.

I believe one buyer got counterfeit blades from that source and a refund.

Here's a legitimate source in Ireland, but prices have gone up as quantities are finite:

https://www.shaving.ie/products/200-pols...lades.html


Just my 2 cents regarding these. I have used them and still have a 10 pack. While a very good/smooth blade I do not personally feel that they are "unsurpassed" in that regard. There are a host of modern Gillette blades just as good if not better, e.g., Platinum, Silver Blue, Rubie, etc.


The Counterfeit blade phenomenon seems a bit of of a head scratcher to me.

I’ve bought many packs from this seller and feel they’re the best available for me, and decidedly different than pols - especially on the first shave or 2.

The pics at the top of the thread aren't showing for anyone fwiw.

Man these blades are nothing but confusion. Are the brown packaged ones the originals from Poland? Then there are two different blue packages as well. I guess the darker blue are what are currently being produced in St. Petersburg, right? Well that is if they are with that whole going out of production rumor.

The brown boxed blades are ‘Stainless’ whereas the blue boxes are Iridium Super Extra Stainless...different blades. I’ve used both and they are very different blades.
