I know it varies for everyone and that's what I find interesting, that one person can find a blade to be the best thing since Sliced Bread and another think the same blade is truly Woeful.

Just for fun what are your 1,2 or 3 Worst ever blades and the 1,2 or 3 you love the most.

For Me

Worst:

Shark Super Chrome
Lord Platinum
Gillette Wilkinson Sword


Best:

Gillette Sharp Edge
Gillette Nacet
Kai Stainless

Worst:
Bolzano
Bolzano
Bolzano (and Derby as a near 4th runner).

Best: (in no real order)
Feather
Nacet
Gillette Silver Blues, Platinum, Sharp edge (yellow).

Edit: Razor specific really. My NEW LC loved Feathers, Fatip Picollo is great with Astras (Blue or Green). GSB's always work well. New Timeless OC to play with now, so favourite blade/s might change.
Still hate Bolzanos though!

I have just re-started DE shaving after 25-30yrs, I can only ever remember using the Wilkinson sword. How times change, for the better I must add.
At present I have only tried 4 blade types, the Merkur and Muhle came with the new razors I bought and I knew they were better than the old blades I used. The others are Astra SP and Feather HS.
So
Best
  1. Astra SP - Comfy to use as a beginner.
  2. Feather HS - I could feel the difference as soon as I started, it seems to have settled after 4 shaves and is still shaving smoothly.
  3. Merkur/Muhle

Worst
  1. Wilkinson sword of old.
  2. TBC
  3. TBC
I have a few sampler packs on route so hopefully after I have a bit time under my belt I can update the list.

The post is interesting reading for a newbie and I can hopefully get some recommendations of Razor/Blade combo's.
Cheers
Tony

Best - Polsilver SI, Astra Green, Gillette Platinum.
Worst - BIC Chrome, Nacets, Bolzano.

Any ideas on the best replacement for the Polsilver SI? I hear stocks are running low!
