    sol92258 I have no earthly idea

    depends alot on the razor I'm using:
    Krona - Feather
    38C or super adjustable - red pack personna or astra superior
    everything else - most of the time, red pack personna

    Whatever kind Wal Mart has... They work good, they're cheap, convenient, readily available and the container holds used blades.

    except mine are:
    Feathers in mild razors......SS', Techs, Weishi, Sticky
    Derbys in aggressive ones..........Slant, R41, Slim Adj
    and just recently Ive been playing with the Gillette Yellow 7 'O clocks.
    They have potential ;)

    I've tried the 7 o'clock yellow pack but I find them to be too harsh and unforgiving. I've gotten ridiculous razor burn with them in my Super Speed.

    I have, however, falling in love with Derbys. To me, they seem to be the right balance between sharpness and forgiving. I get really, really close shaves with little to no razor burn.

    I have a pack of the yellows, and I know I've used them, but for some reason I'm drawing a blank on them. They must not have been real impressive, or real bad or I would've remembered them. The Reds seem to be a perfect match for my (actually your old) Gillette Speed.

    Crystals, though with the help of some of the good folks here, I've recently given into RAD; so, I'll need to check blades vs. my new razors.

    I'll pretty much use any blade -- as long as it's a Derby. ;)

    New here, but have been wetshaving for about 4 months. I really like the Dorco-301 blades. I use those, along with Derby's and Crystals or Red Packs. All seem to work well. Feathers are OK, but I only tend to get one good shave out of them, for some reason.
