Fake Shark blades?

Bought these off eBay. After one shave (on soft 5 day growth, softened by hot shower) the edges are full of nicks and flaws. Shave #2 with the blade was a nightmare.

Notice the suspicious batch numbers on the packaging: "000000"

There's another thread about potentially dodgy 7 O'Clocks too. It seems the general concesus is don't buy blades from ebay. I've been stung in the past too so now I only buy direct from a trusted vendor

Any chance you can list the seller so we know who to avoid?
I'm negotiating with him for replacements at this time. He has promised replacements that are up to scratch (pardon the pun). If he does not deliver, I'll name and shame.

Meanwhile, who else here has Sharks? Can you do a comparison of the boxes please, the printing, the fonts, colors, etc? Thanks

That packaging is completely different. I'm calling FAKE on mine.

Look at little things like the shading in the 4 balls under the shark.

It still surprises me that such an inexpensive item such as blades still attract 'fakes' being made. The monetary amount to tool up for production they may as well produce decent ones and the volume they'd have to sell must be enormous. A fake 'Rolex' I get, but razor blades?

Reject blades stolen or diverted and packaged on the cheap. ? still, does not seem to make financial sense. :confused:
