I have a tuck, but haven't gotten around to trying them.
They can be had here: https://liorfe.com/
The only ones that I know of that I have not tried are the afore-mentioned red stainless and Nacet, stainless and platinum. I have tucks of all three, so I'll get around to them sooner or later.
The yellows, Astra blue, and Permasharp are favorites.
My two favorites are Nacet & GSB, in that order. Next are 7 O’clock blacks, then yellows.
Polsilver Super Iridium
Used my first Polsilver Super Iridium Extra Stainless this morning and could not be more impressed. It does everything I want from a blade, exactly how I want it.
One more - Minora. I have a tuck of these too that I haven't tried yet.
I couldn't find any Russian beer at the packie, so I just bought a bottle of Saison Dupont.
Speaking of Russian blades, I've heard about the wonderful qualities of Gillette "Swedes" which apparently are no longer available.........until now. Bullgoose is saying they have now received the NEW Gillette Swedes which are sold in boxes of 50 (10 cards of 5). The cover of the tuck says Gillette Platinum. I've seen Gillette Patinums before and sure enough they are available on tryablade but the packaging is different, even though both are Gillette and both made in Russia. Does anyone know what the difference might be between the two versions?
These blades (Gillette Platinum) just got me a life ban on the Shave Nook. LOL. Someone asked if they were available anywhere in a single pack, so I posted 2 links to respected online vendors. Got banned for spam.
That aside, they are my go to blade. I’ve been using older St Petersburg manufactured for years, but have yet to try anything made lately, or in this packaging.
Wow. I think I'm the one who asked that question in the Swedes thread. Never saw your post with the links. Bummer. For what it's worth I usually stay away from posting links to sites given how sensitive all of the forums are to commercial traffic.
Yeah. Lesson learned.
I like Voshkod, Polsilver, Rapira, Astra, most all I've tried from Russia I think.
Unreal dude, but then again it's run by Phil from Bullgoose. But I wouldn't have expected that either.
My top 5 Russian blades are as follows.
2. Rapira Platinum Lux
4. Gillette Silver Blue
Gillette Platinums, which work very well for me, are sold in Art of Shaving stores. They are $20 for 20 blades, so rather pricey. That's AoS for you.
Gillette Platinums can be purchased from Gemstone Trading for £11.99 ($15.65). With shipping to California, it is £17.49 ($22.83). Great pricing and great customer service from this vendor!
They also have Gillette Rubie blades, another fine product from Petersburg Products International. PPI is Gillette's Russian factory in St. Petersburg.
No, you got banned for not being a kowtowing marketing tool for Bullgoose Shaving. The Shave Nook is exists to drive sales for Bullgoose. Anything that does not serve those ends is forbidden or censored. In light of this, content at that forum is suspect.
I have a lifetime supply of the following Russian blades:
Wizamet Iridium Super
Gillette 7:00 super stainless(Green)
Rapira Platinum Lux
All are excellent!

just ordered 100 7 oclock super stainless..green.. looking forward..
I have a sample tuck I haven’t touched yet. And a 7 o clock yellow tuck that I haven’t finished yet.
How do they compare to the yellow pack, what is the difference?
I am very pleased with rapira lux, voskhod, and Astra.
My recent blade acquisitions are currently satisfying my acquisition disorder, and saving me money.
Did you get a good price on the green 7 o’clocks?
curious what any of these Russian made blades would cost in russia?
i'm sure there is considerable mark up since we are a tertiary market
$18 ish canadian shipped..
