    Don't have a favorite yet. I haven't tried the Sharp's. The best shave I've had is with a vintage Gillette Super platinum which came with a red tip SS I just brought. Believe it is a full pack of 10.

    Wade & Butcher "For Barber's Use" straight razor (Meat Chopper!).

    I'm mainly a straight razor shaver -- I haven't even made it through the obligatory blade sampler! :eek: :D

    Feather: the sharper, the better. Though I favour now AC Feather blades.

    Swedish Gillette, maybe followed closely by Feather.

    I voted other.

    I like different blades with different razors, and here is the current list:

    Merkur HD: Derby, Feather
    Merkur Slant: Derby, SHARP v2
    Feathers (portable and polymer): Feather
    Gillette Tech: Feather, SHARP v2
  11. moviemaniac

    moviemaniac Tool Time

    for the closest shave: Feathers
    for the "everyday shave": Personnas (American) and Derby Extras

    Swedish Gillette followed by daily user IP. This was when I use DE everyday. Now that I use Straights I just load IP's for minor touch ups.

    Just like Joe said....different blades for different razors.

    I rotate based on the shave...

    Method shave: Feather
    Creams: Derby or IP
    Soaps: Derby or Straight

    For touch-ups after the straight, usually a Derby in Merkur Long Handle Classic

    I've probably given this too much thought

    Derby all the way.. And the occasional straight shave..

    Voted "Other" because I use different blades with different razors and different moods.

    For my Merkur HD and 1904, which I use most of the time, I like the Swedish Gillette, the Israeli Personna and the Derby. How do I choose? My mood when I change blades and sometimes just for the sake of variety. I've been getting good shaves from all three

    Sharp V2, a real work horse. Just like the Gillette but less cost.

    As they say, admitting you have a problem is the first step! :p

    Depends on the razor. I still have not tried the Sharps and 7 AM

    So far, Derby. I used Feathers for a couple of months but never got over the harshness, then I tried everything in Lettter K's sample pack at least 3 or 4 times. Have not tried Sharps or 7 a.m., but the Derbys are working so well for me that I'm reluctant to experiment any more...
