      There is no difference between them, they just changed the color from brown to grey.

      However, there is a difference between the Primorac OFF- Made in Japan and the one made in Europe which both used to be brown and are now grey.

      I highly recommend the Made in Japan one which is better quality, softer and more flexible with better control and a nice finish, rather than its Made in Europe counterpart which is harder and feels more rough.

      Butterfly has always been refurbishing their blade handles.

      Although there is a unique 'quality' to old blades, I wouldn't say the quality of newer versions is worse.

      There's a shop that sells them in Paris but he's not allowed to ship outside the Paris-area.

      You could contact Butterfly England and see if they can get one for you.

      Anyone noticed they now call it "Offensive" in the lens, not Off- anymore?

      But that wouldn´t mean they´ve changed the blade construction as such, I think.

      Ah, I didn't even pay attention!

      The blade is definitely more in the OFF- (some say even ALL+) range.

      Is Primorac considerably slower than Korbel or would it be almost similar?

      It is slower. Korbel is often called "the next step" onwards from Primorac. It´s not a HUGE step, but you´ll notice,

      Yea, the Korbel packs quite a punch, the Primorac not so much, that's almost why I call the Primorac an ALL+ when the Korbel is a true OFF-.
