    Tried so far: Persona Comfort Coated, Personna Red, 7 AM, Derby, Merkur, Tiger, Voskhod, Feather, Many more to try.
    I used nothing but Personna Comfort Coated for 40 days to build up some skill. I need to try the blades I tried before that to get a better comparison. Fun thread.

    Permasharp supers. Many have come and gone, these still remain.

    If I try each of my 3o or so different blades in each of my 20 or so different razors, for one week each, soon I will know which works best with each razor. Hmmm. Daunting. I think I need more blades.

    Whenever I get frustrated with my novice abilities, I grab a Wilkinson Sword and my confidence is restored. Not ready to declare them my "favorite" but they're becoming my go-to blade. Still have a lot more to try.

    Just finished a week with a Personna Lab blue. Even abusively chasing the baby I couldn't get a bad shave- no irritation or cuts all week. By day 7 it was getting a bit dull though (the blade, not my shave). My only problem now is choosing tomorrow's blade for my next comparison. Derby? Astra? Crystal?
