  3. These threads are hard to read. We need a poll somewhere where all (or nearly all) are listed and then people can pick as many from the list as they like. The one(s) with the most votes wins! But it would be a lot of work to create such a poll and not sure if B&B would allow one to create a poll with so many choices.

    My list:

    1. Kai <--- pretty much only use this
    2. Feather
    3. Gillette Black (India)
    4. -
    5. -

  4. My 5 in no particular order
    Nacets
    GSB
    Rubie Plus
    Astra SP
    Wilkinson Sword Chindia
     
  5. No order:

    1) Wilky Light;
    2) Personna 74;
    3) Polsilver;
    4) GSB;
    5) Nacet
     
  6. <<--in consideration of this date. Could change tomorrow.

    Polsilver Super Iridium
    Astra Superior Platinum
    Gillette Platinum*
    Voshhok Teflon Coated

    * could substitute any premium Gillette blade here. Gillette could easily move up the list considering Astra SP is P&G owned. I have had good shaves w/ the Gillettes DEs used so far.
     
  7. 1. Kai Stainless Steel.
    2. Gillette Platinum.
    3. Astra Superior Platinum, (Green).
    4. Gillette 7 O┬┤Clock Super Stainless.

  12. There's only one blade I've found thus far that's worth using where it:

    3. Voskhod
    4. Voskhod
    5. Voskhod

    1. Gillette Platinum
    2. 7 O'Clock Yellow
    3. Iridium Super / Polsilver
    4. Silver Blue
    5. PermaSharp Super
    6. Nacet
     
  14. Oh hell, who doesn't love to get sucked into a subjective DE blade poll...LOL . See below.

  18. Surprised at the lack of 7 O'Clock Yellow in peoples' Top 5's, given the occasional outbursts of support for it here. Personally, my list varies from time to time but the Yellow is always on it!
     
  19. Chindia? Are they made in both countries?

    My list:
    Wilkinson Sword India
    Treet Platinum
    Shark SC
