I know, I know, YMMV but alas my fellow wetshavers I pose a question. I seek a DE blade that is as forgiving as Crystals but slightly sharper. I recently purchased a 10 pack and while they are ok, IMHO they could be slightly sharper. Actually being from a Meditiranean country I was expecting them to be sharper than they actually are.

I've never used Crystals, or if I have I don't have a specific memory of them, but I've found Personna Supers (i.e. with the blue wax paper) to be a shade less sharp than Feathers, but much more forgiving.

I think crystals are the same as personna reds. Polsilver Super Iridiums are hard to beat in the sharp/smooth category IMO YMMV LOL

I like Crystals. I don't think they are the same as the Personna Reds, which I like better. Either that or my mind is playing tricks.

I also like the Polsilver Super Iridium, but two for you to try are Gillette Silver Blue and Perma-Sharp Super. Both are clearly sharper than the Crystals but are still forgiving.

I use Kai, which I find as sharp as Feather but smoother and longer lasting. As we all know with blades, YMMV.

Just as an aside. Tried the Kai with the Feather Artist Club Str8. Found them to be very sharp. I'd say sharper then the feather.
