Same for me. I use a GBE blade pretty much all the time but this morning opened a pack of Personna Reds. You are right - smooth and sharp for a beautiful shave.I've been using lots of my "vintage" blades (GBE, Spoiler, etc.) and today decided to go back to one of the more boring blades in my collection -- Israeli Personna Red. WOWOW! I forgot what a great blade this is. Smooth, so sharp that you feel like there's no blade loaded in the razor. Got a great BBS shave in two passes, and I'm going to try to remember to use more of these "boring" blades!
