Voskhod, in *any* razor.
I've been using Feathers pretty exclusively since November 25. They are my favorite now and I'll use them until I run out. Then I'll be on to another go to blade.
Personna Reds and Rapira Super Stainless.
After an extensive search, this inexpensive blade performs best for me
Astra SP hands down.
It's you and me Penguin!
Minions and penguins get along well. Here's a pic from last Summer's outing when @macaronus and his minions came for a visit.
That's so funny.
I've gotten down to a power-trio in my blade rotation, Gillette Silver Blue, Voskhod and Polsilver Super Iridium. I don't see anything breaking into that rotation any time soon, so those are my 3 go-tos.
Gillette Spoilers, and Polsilver Super Iridiums.

It's razor specific for me. Since I have 10 in rotation I use a variety of blades. Voshkod, Red Personna, Rapira Plat Lux and Stainless to name a few.
i have gsb,astra sp,wilkinson, and voskhod.voskhod in my 50s tech-awesome.gsb in my arist jr-awesome.wilkinson in flair tip-sucked.more testing to do. i still have astra ss,perma sharps(russian) and gillette platinums to try.
I found the Feathers were a bit too sharp and don't hold their edge because of the sharpness.
These are my top three with number one being at the top of the photo. When you find something you like - might as well buy a bunch of them.
Iridium Super or Gillette Rubie.
The Rubie is an interesting choice; they seem to get a bad rap, even among fans of Russian blades. Definitely a YMMV situation.
I really like the Treet Platinum as well as the PolSilver super iridium
Personna Lab Blue
How interesting. Looking at my records, I've tried this on numerous razors from a simple Tech to a Fat Boy and Rocket HD500 and many others and never has a poor shave.
There you go.
I have two that I enjoy: Astra SP and Gillette Silver Blue
