    Every time I use a new blade after a couple of weeks I update my photo chart, latest entry is the Gem Personna SS PTFE blade and just my opinion of the feel of the blade like a lot of shaving gear we like to give opinions on. A blade for every beard type & skin sensitivity. For my medium beard & skin type I like the ones that are sharp & smooth crossing over into the sharpest part of the chart seems to work the best for myself.
