    if you need to choose: only one blade for your rest of life, what would be your choice?

    I've got about 5 different blades, the one I would keep would be my feather blades.[​IMG]

    Lately I have been liking the Bic's so much I am ready to trade most of my stash of Voskhod for more Bic's.

    In that case contact @Col C as he is our resident Voskhod professional. :D

    Gillette 7 O'Clock Yellows for me. I really have no interest in any other blade! :)

    I'd have to say a straight razor. I only get a handful of shaves out of a DE blade, so if I only had one it would be useless in less than a month.

    A Straight because it can be honed over and over, forever.

    Derby for me. Smooth, gentle, and effective on my face.

    That's what I figgered.

    For me...1960s Gillette stainless aka Spoiler (I think they were the same blade). 2nd place, Blue Birds, which I can't tell for sure are still in production or not.

    Short of that...I can shave with prit much any blade. Could live fine on old carbons, Dorcos, Big Ben or anything else, but I really ought to try Derby again since some say they've improved. Ought to try Voskhods again, too.
