What's new

The great blade vote!

That's a very good point Yakster, nice graphic. I wonder if the voting would have changed at all had people not seen the current result before voting..
 
This is a great time for this thread.
After more than a year shaving with a safety razor, I am now going through what is left of all the samples of blades that I have accumulated.
I have 6 different razors, so now I'm using the best of the best just to see what I must stock up on.
The 3 best were
Gillette Super Platinum
PolSilver
Personna Med Prep
I'm using just one razor for my final round, My '59 Fatboy
I'm now through the first blade, PolSilver which provided me with 10 great shaves! I could have maybe gone more.
I'll vote after I use the other two blades.
I did like the Kai blades but; the price point it is off the list.

Very nice choices. I'm venturing on a premium blade sample too, so these kind of opinions are really helping my purchase decisions.

I am suprised Feather is #1 - I'll have to revisit a Feather Blade in my Wolfman Razor.

I really enjoy the GSB - the blade I voted. Have yet to try Polsilver - but have 5 at home.

OK, OK, 1 vote for GSB (the closest to a vote against feather)
LightShave, what are you doing with the multiple-votes?

There were lots of posts about sharp and smooth blades and the best blades. I'm just helping the community out with a visual poll of everyones opinion. (I'm also going to buy all the blades with more than 1 vote) If someone has voted sharp and smooth, 2 blades for example, then the vote is not valid.
