From the markings on the box, I'm wondering if those Gem blades have a 2-facet edge.

I'm not talking about markings, I'm talking about what the cutting edge is like. Single edge blades made for scraping have an edge with two bevels/levels/facets, and shaving blades have three. It might mention the number of facets on the box.

These are the Pella blades that are widely used for shaving with the SE razors.

These blades are popular with folks that use the OneBlade SE razor. The spines are removed from the GEM blades and the corners clipped to provide equal or better and definitely cheaper shaves with the OneBlade than with the recommended Feather SE blades. OneBlade recommends using the Feathers for ONE (1) shave only before discarding the blade. And yes, they sell the Feathers by subscription to their loyal razor users.

Then they most likely have 3 facets. The markings on the carton threw me. I'd never taken a look at the carton before.

From what I can gather, you'd know something was funny if you tried shaving with a 2-facet blade.

Paul, which markings are you referring to?


My apologies - I did mean markings, and it was the "industrial blades" description that I was wondering about. But some industrial blades have 3 facets.
