I have been wanting to try a old style SE like a Gem or Ever Ready and was wondering what kind of blades do you guys reccomend.  When it comes to DEs I enjoy feathers, kais and the Gillette 7o'clock Blacks to name a few of my favorites and in my mongoose i like the feather pro guards.  Also which razor would you all reccomend for someone who has used DEs for a while and has experience with the SE Mongoose, just never with a razor that takes the box cutter style blades. any insight is welcome and appreciated.  Thanks

I might find this Single edge blade guide useful. I did.

There are less blade options for SE. I use GEMs and occasionally I take the spine of an old GEM and put it on a Feather SE. Just to have some variety.

That's pretty clever, Where do you buy your blades at?  Other than the AC blades I haven't seen any feather SE, but then again I haven't really been looking.

I think last time I got them from connaughtshaving.com. But you can find GEMs at CVS and Walgreens.

If you intend to use SE a great deal definitely try Connaught in bulk. Last I checked that was the best price even for the US. An alternate would be Ted Pella and the same blade. His stock number is #121-3.

Smile  Don't even think hardware store "box cutter" blades. They aren't even close to being sharp enough for shaving. But to look at them they do look the part.

Ted Pella is also a good source for injector blades, for Schick or Pal razors.   Good blades, good price, although the plastic injector container isn't the best.

I grabbed a pack of the CVS brand blades. They shave ok and don't give me any problems. Also found some trees locally too. IMO or in my expiernce the blades in an SE don't really matter to MY FACE like they do in a DE. YMMV
