In no real order:

1. Polsilver SI
2. Personna Red (Israeli)
3. Feather
4. Nacet
5. Gillette Silver Blue

Honorable mention to the Russian Gillette 7 o'Clock Blues that missed the last only because they are discontinued.
 
Gillette Silver Blue (primary)
Astra SP (secondary)

I have one or two other blades, but these are what gets used. Right now I have an Astra in my razor.
 
Depends on the razor a fair bit but ....

1) Gillette Silver Blue
2) Voskhod
3) Personna Lab Blue/Barber/whatever you want to call 'em this week
4) Personna Israeli "Red"
5) Kai

That list could change at the drop of a hat though :w00t:

Personna blue (verona, va)
I'd like to get my hands on some Personna med preps just to test

Testing blades gets to be tiresome. However, if you still are, enjoy the recommendations, and keep testing---wetshaving can be fun!

but I just got some Voskhods to try, they are reputed to be smoother than Derbys and sharper so the list may change shortly
