I only DE shave with a Merkur Futur Chrome these days - enjoy the 1-6 setting I can use depending on my beard growth, and only use the DE for second and third pass these days, as I found the first pass with a Plisson, Edwin Jagger or Mühle handled Fusion cart gives me a smoother better first pass.

With that said I still have my favourite DE blades, and this is my Top 5, I pick all 5 depending on mood, growth and feel.

So in no particular order, all these 5 blades are my goto blades:

- Feather Professional
- Kai
- Personna Med Prep
- PolSilver Super Iridium
- Gillette Silver Blue

Let me hear your personal Top 5 picks  Smile

In no order

Polsilver
Feather
Gillette 7 o'clock black
Gillette silver blue
Perma sharp

I used to only use feather and they were my favorite. Now I reach for polsilver 8/10 times and when I want a change I'll go gillette or permasharp. Russian blades are my favorite.

But I should say that I haven't used  PolSilver SI; however, I've bought some and will be trying them starting tomorrow. Based on the reviews listed above, I've got my hopes up for a great shave.

Tried a few of the Feather/Voskhod/Personna and whatnot. None to my liking. Decided that I can get very comfortable BBS from the cheapies, so I threw in the towel on the blade quest.

I will note that every once and a while I'll throw in a feather (250+). I also have a 100 or so each of Astra SP and labs. I carry these when traveling.

Your failure (to date) to try KAI gives you a free Forgiveness Pass for your love of Feather.
That will change . . . after.

Personna labs. No other DE blade is worth using to me.
