    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!!

    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.

    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.

    RyX DoH!

    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.

    For DE Razors:- Gillette Nacet
    For SE Razors:- Schick Proline P-30
    For GEM Razors:- GEM Personna SS PTFE Coated

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