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. Polsilver Blades/Service

    Posted by Nick on 7th Apr 2018

    Best blades I've found, not a sharp as Feather, but smoother and feel better for my skin. Service was great, prompt delivery, well packaged.

  2. Polsilver blades

    Posted by Jon on 22nd Mar 2018

    Probably my favourite DE blades I find them smooth and sharp and well suited to a medium aggression razor and a tough beard shaving 2 times a week

  3. Excellent blades

    Posted by Unknown on 12th Feb 2018

    I have only shaved three times with one of blades, I found them very sharp but also smooth, no irritation I tend to get with extremely sharp blades. I'll be ordering more of these excellent blades.

  4. Excellent Blade

    Cant say enough about these blades, very sharp but easy to use, you'll struggle to find a better blade.

  5. 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.

  6. 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 !

  7. Great product and service

    Posted by Ferrum on 25th Oct 2017

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

  8. Recommended

    Posted by Nicholas on 15th Apr 2017

    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.

  9. 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 :-)

  10. 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.
