The candidates for my best are narrowed down to: Wizamet Super Iridium, Kai, & King C Gillette. Deciding between them is a challenge unto itself, heh.
I have been thinking about this since I signed up, but with nearly 60 different blades I am still no closer to deciding which one to use for this challenge. If it's anything like as long lasting as the Schick we tried last year I could put the two up against each other. Well that would be the next four months sorted
I have some made in England Wilkinson Swords from the era, I think they are going to be pretty close! Maybe you have some?I am feeling the same. I have lots of great blades but a lot of them depend on the razor they are in. I'm kinda feeling like using a vintage blade from the same era.

Here the front and the back of the tuck. There is writing on the side "MADE IN POLAND", "WIZAMET", and "10 SZTUK". Apparently my phone up'd the yellow in the pics; but to my eyes, the actual tuck is a bit darker and more antique gold color.I went through my blade stash today. I would like to see the backside of the PIF tucks. I have two kinds of vintage Polsilvers in the light brown/gold packaging. With the different writing on the back, one has a white box and the other has more words in Polish.
As far as my competition blade, I'm really thinking of the vintage Astra stainless blade. Otherwise I have one single remaining Iridium blade. It really is a tough competition!
We wait with bated breath your Holy Grail shave with the Gillette Silver Blue on the Golden Throne of Olympus.Hey brother @Grundi , the blades arrived in the mail today, I hope to test them tomorrow. I THINK that my pneumonia has turned into old monia, since I feel MUCH better today. The plan is to test them against Gillette Silver Blue, but possibly with a twist for the first shave: I have a GSB with over 50 uses that I might try it against for the first shave...
I think I have a surprise for ALL of you....!We wait with bated breath your Holy Grail shave with the Gillette Silver Blue on the Golden Throne of Olympus.
Don't forget the ARKO soap.!
