The Great Razor Blade Champioinship

I have now tested every blade in my big sampler pack from West Coast Shaving. Five have made it to a second round:

1. Lord Platinum Class
2. Astra Superior Platinum
3. Merkur Super
4. Gillette 7 O'clock
5. Crystal Platinum Super

The top three have been given byes to the semi-finals. Gillette and Crystal are currently going head to head in the wildcard round. Gillette went first yesterday and today. Crystal is up next time I shave.

WCS doesn't sell Gillette Platinum, it seems. I had some of those from Art of Shaving and I liked them, too, so I'll try to find an online seller and buy another 5 of those. If I can only get them at Art of Shaving, however, I'm simply not paying $1/blade. Can anyone recommend where to purchase these online, at a reasonable price?

Shouldn't this be in the Razor Blade sub-forum?

Anyway, going out of your way to try Gillette Platinum blades is well worth it. I find them to be at least as good as my go-to blade, the Polsilver SI.
