Haven't tried too many blades yet but so far, here's what I like.

1. Gillette Silver Blue
2. Personna Platinum (Red IP)
3. Astra SP

I use Feathers in a Feather razor but haven't tried them in other razors yet. I also have a hundred Bleue Extras but haven't opened a tuck yet.

PASS:
1) BOLZANO, -stropped prior to use.
2) Rapira Swedish Supersteel
3) Persona Med Prep…
Followed closely by Voskhod!

FAIL:
Feather; weak, thin sharp edges break down during first use! Cost too much.
Wilkinson Sword; tug & pull, inconsistent.
Merkur; tug & pull + unbalanced edges, a lot like Mekurs.
Dorco; horribly inconsistent, can be very sharp but also tugs and skips causing blood loss.

That's pretty much it! Although the brown Super Iridiums are also pretty amazing IMO.
