    Default Why don't the Chinese produce DE blades?

    The Chinese produce pretty much everything, exept for anything liquid for some reason... I have never seen shampoo or dish soap made in China?.

    Making DE blades seems pretty simple. Just stamping some metal and putting an edge to it. Where can I find 3 cent Chinese blades?

    In China. They do make them--panda blades, and others. Just not exported much.

    I don't know. The company would only sell them by the palletload...and I wasn't about to drop a few thousand on the off chance that they outshaved Swedes so I could retire on the profits.

    Thanks anyway, Jim. Nobody would expect you to buy a pallets' worth of suspect Chinese DE blades just to report to us how they shave.

    Unless....

    Group buy anyone????

    problem ith most chinese made products..in my opinion..is either too much lead in handbags or too high of "something" that the US regulates as a "health risk"..why this is?..I guess another way to cut small corners to make a product look/seem amazing...im just saying..from all my news watching..thats all ;-)

    Unfortunately they are fairly active in the "counterfeit" DE blade business. I receive unsolicited emails all the time from Chinese businessmen trying to sell name brand DE blades. While these blades may be legit, I only buy from sources that I know.

    I can get the Topaz blades from a distributor in India. From what I have read though, the Topaz is a below average blade.
