    My go to blade these days is the GSB. As I read through this entire post, I was surprised in the older posts from 2009 and such, the Derby blades were a popular choice. Nowadays the Derbys are public enemy #1 on the shaving forums. What happened to them?

    All give great shaves with my Merkur 34c. Trying the same blades in my recently acquired Fatboy G1 - so far they all work great with the Fatboy as well.

    Astra SP for me. I get BBS above the jaw line. If I try for bbs on the neck I usually get irritation

    Gillette Platinum Plus...I think anyone who likes Astra SP's would love those.

    Astra SP for sure! Can't there be a poll for this thread. Much easier to see the popular votes

    Not a bad idea..... It certainly would help in getting the general consensus on blade popularity and usage.

    Fantastic shave tonight with my Astra SP. I believe the Astra SP gets better with age. I'm on my 5th shave with this blade and it is just as sharp and actually a little smoother than the first day I put it in. Love these blades. :)

    I mostly just use family dollar 10 for $1 blades in all my DE's. I think they are ASR. Great shaves cheap and local.
