    Those blades are made in Russia and are amongst my favourites.

    – Nothing that I can think of right now.
    + Nicely balanced blades in regards to sharpness. I can shave in such a manner that I can feel the blade on my skin without cutting myself, but the blades don’t pull too much on my stubbles while shaving. By feeling the blade I do achieve a nice and close shave with no cuts.
    + After one week of usage the blade is still nicely sharp. – I do change my blade though after one week of usage.
    + The 5 blades came boxed in a small cardboard box that is easily recyclable.
    + Each blade comes individually wrapped in wax-paper.

    Conclusion: Fantastic blades to use, great packaging, great value for money.

    They cut the stubble on my face well. I haven’t tried any others to compare to but have no complaints.
