these blades are definitely my favorites, but I find it difficult to choose who is better.
So what your choice ???

Thank you!



Gillette Silver Blue

3 out of the 4 you listed I use on a regular basis.  However, GSBs seem to never let me down in ANY razor.  I feel like I can count on them for consistent performance more than any other blade. 

Polsilvers come in at a very close second, and I predict this will be the blade that gets the highest votes Biggrin

All are very nice blades.
Voskhod - occasionally has uniformity issues and are a tad less smooth. 
GSB - great blade that suddenly goes dull without notice, even in the middle of the shave. 
Polsilver and Perma-Sharp are very similar blades IMO. 
I am happy to shave with any of those 4.

I would include the Gillette 7 o'clock Perma Sharp greens from India. Just as sharp as the others mentioned (I've never tried those gold Perma-Sharp Super) but lasts longer and are smoother from my experience.

For me the Polsilver edge the others out. gSB would be second. The Permasharp, Then Voshkod. They are all good.

This would be my opinion also.

I love my GSB blades, they were the only blade I bought a 1000 pack of.  But PSI blades are soooo smooth.

I've tried 3 of the 4 brands (not yet for Voskhods). My vote and preference is for the GSBs by a long shot. I use them in all my 3 piece razors. The wax tends to attract lather and whisker debris which then gums up the mechanism on my Red Tips, making for a most unpleasant experience.

The Bullgoose LE knife is SPLENDID for removing wax spots before use. All of these are good blades. It's all in the alchemy of  the right lather and SLOWING DOWN.

Polsilver, durasharp are favs.  Silver Blues are meh for me and Voskod don't work at all.  Isn't it funny how personal blades seem to be?  Perhaps I got a bad tuck of Voskod and SB and need to revisit? Or maybe quit all that nonsense and enjoy what is working for me right now.

Polsilver, hands down.

Been shaving exclusively with Polsilvers for a few months and then decided to go with #2, a GSB just for a change.  Horrible razor burn.  Dunno if my skin had gotten used to the superior Polsilver's inherent smoothness or that perhaps my technique needed to change with the blade, but I tossed the GSB after 2 shaves and am back with the Polsilvers.  Was actually disapointed the GSB performed so poorly... so much so I ordered 200 more Polsilvers to add to my [growing] stash.

I've have all four in my blade stash and get good results from all of them.  The Voskhod are a good value at current prices, and I have over 500 in my stash.  For me, the higher price on the GSB and Polsilver does not get me better performance.

The Permasharp Super and GSB are my top two blades. 

That said, I was able to pick up Rapira Swedish supersteel blades for a fraction of the cost and use them primarily.

I stockpiled Wizamet SI's before finding an even better blade, the Perma-Sharp Super.

Those are all my favorites, some work better in other razors.
