“Mr. Key,
Thanks for you question! I didn’t immediately know the answer, so some research ensued. Apparently the difference is the ST-301 blades have an added PTFE coating. What is PTFE? It’s a lot like a teflon coating, it’s added for extra smoothness for the shave. I have heard many people say, which is also my experience, that the 301 blades are more comfortable than the 300 blades, for the reason that it is a smoother blade. In answer, the difference is a teflon-like coating on the 301 blades that set the two apart. Thanks for the question!

Happy Shaving,
