Tonight I used a GEM PTFE coated blade for the first time. I have to say it was noticeably smoother than just a plain stainless steel blade. I got a 10 pack from BullGoose shaving at a very reasonable price. Now I still have to use up my old stock of the plain ones. Good thing I only have about 20 left of them. 
Next time I will have to buy more than just 10.

I got 200 recently from Connaught for $35 shipped. Definitely my favorite all around SE blade.

I just bought a sampler from tryablade. PTFE was my first crack at an SE, and I was pleasantly surprised. I like a mild razor,sharp blade setup, and the PTFE was right up my alley.

They are the only blade I will use in an SE now. Just a super shaving blade.

I'd recommend Connaught's as the go to place to buy these blades. It's where I bought mine, and where I get my Feather's too. Best prices here, especially in bulk, and great service!

Connaught's is currently out of stock.  But Ted Pella has a pretty good deal on 200 blades for $35.  http://www.tedpella.com/dissect_html/bla...#stainless

Pella's shipping used to be killer unless you could have them shipped to a business address. I'm not sure if that's still the case or not.

You mean his shipping was over priced?

Killer as in a deal-killer. My first purchase was from Pella but I've used Connaught ever since. Interesting how SE blades are hard to stock now. Then again I do think that someone here recently purchased 800 himself from Connaught. Add my 200 in and that's a thousand blades gone like that.

Problem? Sounds like a good start to me.

Thanks again Brian for my introduction to vintage SE and these blades.  Had a great shave with a Shovelhead this morning!!
