Feather, all day
How about a nice rusty one found in an Ebay relic. They're always available.
Persona lab for me
I've only tried around ten blades but I've just decided to order Gillette Silver Blues in bulk.
I reached the one blade forever scenario a couple of years ago with the Polsilvers and now i have a stash of about 7,000. This should last until I'm about 130 years old!!
Gillette Silver Blues
Take no chances, chage the blade between each stroke!
I think I would have to choose the NOS Iridium Super shown in the picture below.
Unfortunately I only have about 100-150 of those, and although I could probably extend the life of each blade to a month or two I would probably/hopefully run out. Also given the fact that these blade only works for me in one particular razor, I probably should choose a more versatile blade. The GSB comes to mind. It is readily available, doesn't cost too much and is a superb shaver.
Polsilvers turn butter smooth after the 1st shave.
Current Production: Personna Med Prep.
No brainer; its Feather for me & the hubby.
Astra S. P. for me. I have a fairly big stash of these. They're superb and less expensive than many others.
I like Astras, Silver Blues and Polsilvers, But that said I'm finding more and more blade I enjoy using; such as Nacets, Sharks and 7 O'clocks.
I am down to only this one these days. I occasionally use a couple others, like the Gillette Swedes, but Astra is my main blade.
I haven't tried the Gillette Swedes, maybe someday.
GEM Blue Star/ Treet single edge carbon steel.
Feather Hi-Stainless works best for me in most every DE. Second choice would be Personna Med Preps or Lab Blues. I seem to recall enjoying many others that would be fine; Voskhod, Gillette 7 O'clock Yellow (but not the Blacks), Astras & Polsilvers. Been a while, but I got decent service from Generic Israeli Personna Reds.
Gillette Silver Blues for me. If they stopped production I would go with ZaZa

Sometimes is hard to stick with these blades depending on my mood of shaving.
