    Never tried them, when I received all of my blade dispensers none of them were sealed, no sense in taking chances.
    Back in the day the only blades I used was Gillette blue blades.
    Truth be told I can't remember how they preformed, too far back.

    I do yes! I got them from the 2019 traveling box tour and I feel like, in this razor they work better than the Astra SP which I use in everything. I’m trying some different ones in different razors.

    I have a few I got from another member, and the box, and I just got 75 Voskhod to add in the loop. I most commonly use the Astra SP and Wilkinson Sword Classic.

    Hi folks. I took a pause for a bit today, and had a look at many of the razor sets posted here. I must say, there are many beautiful examples of Gillette hardware here. You guys have outdone yourselves, and all posts with photos show great shots of your gear.
    Kudos to you all. Good Stuff folks. Excellent thread. The comeradery is exemplary as well.
