5/10/25/50/100 Polsilver Super Iridium DE Double Edge Blades

£1.50
Quantity:

Product Description

 

We have been informed that production of the Polsilver Super Iridium DE blades ceased at the Saint Petersburg factory on 1st August 2016. The blades will gradually be phased out in the areas of Eastern Europe where they are currently distributed. We have taken steps to garner reasonable stocks and expect to be able to maintain supplies and prices on our website, at least in the short to medium term. In the long term, it is inevitable that stocks will eventually start to run out.

We do not deal directly with Procter and Gamble in Russia, only their official Eastern European distributors, so we can only guess as to the motives behind the decision. It is likely to be some sort of Corporate 'streamlining', in line with their general policy of gradually phasing out DE blades in lieu of more modern (read more profitable) alternatives. 

 

We do also know that the Polsilvers will eventually be replaced by Gillette Platinum blades in these particular areas, so P and G obviously have no immediate plans to completely abandon distribution of DE blades in East Europe. The Gillette Platinums are very fine blades too, though somewhat more expensive, another possible reason for the change??

 

We do hope that this information is useful, though we should reiterate that we do not expect to run out of Polsilvers in the short term!

 

 

These top quality, super sharp AND super smooth blades are manufactured in Russia, and are consistently ranked as one of the best in the world...... now available in the UK at a competitive price.

The blades come in individual packs of 5.

  1. No blade is better

    Posted by Steve from Bloc's Village on 18th Jan 2018

    I have been shaving with a DE razor for many years, there were no disposable razors when I started shaving and I have generally stuck to razor blades ever since, I have tried most of the blades on the market at some point before I moved on to these.
    I started using Polsilver Super Iridium blades about ten years ago, they are the smoothest blade I have ever used, I can easily get around 20 shaves from one blade without any deterioration in performance.
    Brilliant blades.

  2. Very smooth shave

    Posted by Chris Grewer on 12th Jan 2018

    First use of these blades, I usually use Feather. They’re very smooth, very close and seem easier on my neck than the very sharp Feather blades.
    I’d recommend giving them a go, especially as the price and delivery service from Gemstone is absolutely first class !

  3. Great product and service

    Excellent blades at a very good price. The usual top-quality speed and service from Gemstone.

    A brand not known to me which I bought upon gemstone feedback. Excellent product, presentation and delivery. First class customer service when dealing with my enquiries.I have bought from Gemstone before and wWill buy from them again.

  5. Pol Silver get them while you can

    Posted by Robert on 27th Mar 2017

    Great DE Razor blades, but sadly not being made anymore. Great price and i would advise anyone into DE shaving is to buy them while you can. I have 400 of these and will have to buy more at this price they are a steal :-)

  6. Top Blades

    Posted by JV on 1st Mar 2017

    Just sharp enough for me; gets through my stubble without dragging or requiring multiple passes for a clean shave. Not as sharp as a Feather, but for me that's a good thing, any sharper and I can't tell when I'm close enough to cut the hair.

    These blades are slightly expensive compared to others and the boxes don't come with anywhere to store used blades so you'll need a blade bank too, but it's worth it for me.

  7. EXCELLENT BLADE FOR THE PRICE

    Posted by IAN METHVEN on 23rd Feb 2017

    This blade is sharp when first used and, more importantly, retains its sharpness to give several good shaves over a reasonable period of time.

  8. Best blade by a mile

    Posted by David Quinton on 25th Jan 2017

    Over the few years I have been DE shaving I have tried many blades. None come near to the quality, sharpness and smoothness of a Polsilver. They'll mow through four or five days stubble real easy. As for the razors they work best in, take your pick. Personally, for me at least, they are amazing in my Above the Tie S1. An incredible shave every time. I tried to figure it out this morning just how many Polsilvers I have bought from Gemstone, I think it's around 1,500 or so. I will get another order in soon just enough to keep me going to old age. My favourite and go-to blade easy. And could well be yours too. try, you will not be disappointed.

  9. An old favourite

    Posted by Ferrum on 17th Dec 2016

    These are one of the best blades I have used, and Gemstone are my "go-to" for them.

    Excellent prices and top-line service.
