    Dudes found some in a market stall today. Pics later. Who is willing to chance a tryout? 5 blades cost $1.30 so that’s 5 to mail out. First come first served. No idea why I bought them but I did!!!!

    I tried the DE ones that came with the $1.50 chinese TTO that Big Lots has. Don't know if they're the same ones but they were just fine. Nothing great but not bad.

    Honestly I don’t even have a SE razor so absolutely no idea why... I just could not resist.

    Personally I would try Chinese DE over Chinese SE blades...they could be window scrapers. Only one way to find out...but I'm not up for it, thanks!

    What type of SE blade? GEM, Injector, "Artist Club" type, etc, etc...?

    Nope those won't fit in my GEM Micromatic. Maybe they'll fit a Junior or Ever-Ready...

    Interesting. No cut-outs so no good for a Micromatic but they would work in most Gems/ Ever Ready. If I found some I would certainly try them out but postage from the US to here (Australia) would not be worth while. I will be interested to hear how they go.

    The only Chinese SE blade I ever tried was one that I found at a local beauty supply store. It gave a very smooth shave with zero reduction as it had never been honed.

    I saw one of those included in a cheap sewing kit or something my daughter got.
