    Voskhods, for a long time it was GSB, but the Voskys played the long game and won me over.

    The question does not apply to me. If I never buy another blade I'll still die with hundreds in my stash. Blade Inventory.jpg

    Yes. Seems many shavers still toss the blade after one shave. Most blades work best on the 2nd and 3rd shaves.

    As always, YMMV applies here.

    About blades; PPCs for me, most universal blade for my face.

    I like a blade I can get at least 5 great shaves. Polsilvers, Silver Blues, 7 O'clocks and Nacets. I need to try my Astras again to see if they still make the grade.

    Realistically if I get a least 5 shaves per blade (I've easily gotten 18 from Polsilvers), I'd only use ~36 blades a year.

    I think I'm gonna change my answer to Gillette nacet! I've been getting some great shaves with them.

    Agree. Nacet is a really good blade and I think most folks over look it. Ladas is another blade in that same category.

    I think I'm in the same boat as you.
