Thanks to @Holiday I have some Dorco blades to try. I tried the Prime first and then these red jobbies.
I prefer these but are they the same as the other red pack that says Platinum in the name and not HQ Technology as per the top right of the pack.
Are the red made in Korea or Vietnam?
I found them great in the WR2. Nice and smooth.
Are these just a normal ST301 stainless anyway?
Platinum or not?
Thanks guys.

Hi @Blackie glad you are getting some joy out of them. If I recall correctly it was @Pbgoose and @lerenau that suggested the Dorco's

According to https://www.razorbladesclub.com/razorblades/ where ordered Red ST301 and Blue ST300 both have platinum coating with blue + PTFE

I don't remember if the Primes (STP-301) are the same as the other Dorcos (ST-300, ST-301). If I had to guess I would say not. But I'm not basing that on any solid evidence or testing.
That said, the Primes are already pretty cheap. Probably my cheapest "favourite" blades. So I feel they're always worth the gamble.

I got a few tucks of Primes from @Tulfan and don't mind them.
