Connaught is ridiculously cheap shipping to US.I got mine here, but looks like Connaught is cheaper unless it’ll cost u more than $13 to ship.
Personna GEM Coated and Wrapped Single Edge Blades (Pack of 100)

Palm stropping will dull the edge out quicker. If you have to palm strop it should only be on a coated blade and only before the first shave if the blade is too harsh for you. After the first shave they become much smoother once you remove the initial layer of ptfe coating on the blade edge. Carbon or uncoated stainless doesn't have this problem. The other way to deal with that is slice it once through a piece of cork or foam before first using.Thanks for the info. I will probably try the treet blades as well. From the sound of it will also palm strop before using the gem blades. I will also check out the link you posted. Thank you for the detailed information about the Gem razor.
I was referring to the vendor in the link not Connaught. Connaught now that I know the shipping cost for a 100 pack is approximately $19 USD shipped which is cheaper than $23 shipped. Looks like I was wrong on Connaught not being cheaper.Connaught is under $33 shipped for 200.

I don't think there is any difference between the Treet and Blue Star blades, I have a feeling they just package to different customers under the different names to keep the trademarks active. I have a few loose Blue Stars and Pal blue blades, I could mail you a couple of each if you PM me your address.I have some gem ptfe blades coming in. Is there anywhere I can buy like one or two of the treet and the blue blades. Tryablade only has the gem persona blades. I see the treet on Amazon and the blue but smallest is 5.
