There aren't a whole lot of choices with single edge blades of the classic Gem style. Fortunately one of the most common, the Gem stainless steel ptfe coated blade, works really well in the Streamline.

The Gem blade has been known to be a little harsh for the first couple of shaves. I have noticed this in some razors but not at all in the Streamline, where it is smooth as silk right from the first shave.

Look up "Ted Pella" PTFE coated blades. There's also a fellow on ebay that sells these blades in packets of 20.

I fully endorse what Bob says, the Streamline is great with the GEMs ,I can get 5/6 shaves with one easily.

Gem PTFE all the way

Edit: Ted Pella is sort of a hassle to buy from...back and forth emails, and they force you to pay for signature receipt (extra 3 bucks shipping on top of required priority) because they are razor blades (yes, really). Connaught is just around the same price and a much easier transaction.

That would be Techichi shave, Don G. One of the better ebay guys.

Bullgoose sells small pkgs too. Also a great purchase option.
