You'll open a can of worms with that question.
Astra SP... Of course
I've been on a Sputnik kick two months now & my Feather blades are in a box somewhere.

Personna Med Preps are pretty sharp, and smoother than Feathers, at least for me. Cheaper than Kai, but maybe a bit less sharp? I haven't tried Kai blades yet, I need to.

Gillette Silver Blues are the best combination of sharpness and smoothness I've found for my skin/hair type.

POLSILVERS Yawn  current production available @ BULLGOOSE. The discounted line from Europe in brown boxes are not as good.

Kai's are great. I also like persona reds, though they aren't quite as sharp as feathers.

I hear ya, I'm not a fan of the wax either, but it's no big deal to me. Still,  I ever find something that works as well or better for me, and doesn't have the wax, I'll switch. 

Tried the Polsilver for a couple shaves in my ATT S2 and went back to GSBs, the Polsilver just wasn't as comfortable and didn't seem any sharper to me.

"opening a can of worms" requires similar properties as a razor blade. It obviously needs to cut, but not wear out halfway around the lid. You want that lid off but not butcher the worms inside. A quality blade is a BALANCE of sharpness, comfort and reasonable longevity. Everyone has to find the blade that works for them. We can all make suggestions based on collective experience; but YOU have to find the right one.

Best mix of sharpness and smoothness for me is Gillette Platinum.
I also like GSBs, but the Platinums are what I use 96 out of 100 shaves.

depends on 2 things:
1) the razor
2) the shaver

The two above quotes say it all. Nothing else need be said on this arguably most YMMV of wet shaving where every facet is YMMV prone. Few absolutes exist!

I put a feather in ikon tech today and it was a blood bath. I need to try some other kind of blade.
