What's new

10 years later--time for a new blade sampler

Sorry about that, I am primarily a vintage blade user and got used to seeing perfect, expensive blades one after the other. The Wizamets are so close to Israeli Personnas and those are still available in 200 boxes. Now is the time to try them and decide before they become like Polsilvers on the market($$$).
Well, I finished up and have to say this was enjoyable. There are a lot of blades I felt were pretty similar and I found some I'd place ahead of my preferred blades. I'm documenting this mostly for myself--so that next time I go to order blades I can revisit this list.

Wizamet Super-Iridium
Rapira Platinum Lux
Perma-Sharp Super
Gillette 7 o'clock Yellow
Lord Platinum
Bic Astor
Kai Stainless
Feather Hi-stainless
Bic Chrome Platinum

For me, pretty much anything from Lord Platinum and higher are great blades that I'd had no concerns buying. GSB were a step above, but the Russian made blades really surprised me. Bic Astor is right on the line--I liked it, but there are better blades for me.
