I'm building a blade sampler at tryablade.com and I would like some suggestions. I like Polsilver, Gillette Silver Blue, and Astra. I have tried 3 Israeli Personna reds, but they don't cut my hair very well. What would be some good blades to try?

If you like Polsilver and GSB, you might want to try Gillette Nacet and Perma-Sharp Super.

Thanks for the suggestions.  I had some of those on my list, but not all.  I have sensitive skin, so I'm trying to find a blade that is sharp and forgiving.  Feathers irritated my skin, even with the AS-D2, and the Personna Reds gave me ingrown hairs because they pull instead of cut.  So far, Polsilvers seem to be the best combination out of the blades I've tried.

Give some of the Gillettes a try (7'o clock, plat, nacets) especially since you like the GSB.
