Out of those choices, the GSB would be far and away my winner.

I am very familiar with 3 of the 4 blades mentioned. The one I have never used is the Permanent-Sharp Super. I use the other three quite regularly. I voted for GSB’s primarily because I use them more because I have a lot of them. I bought 100 of them. I also bought 100 Voskhods. But my 15 year old likes them better so I’ve deferred to the GSB’s. I have a few ticks of Polsver SI’s and like them. The reality is that as I hone my technique further I realize I can get a great close comfortable BBS irritation free shave from any of these 3 blades.

I thought the Voskhods were the cream of the crop a few years back. I got involved with a group buy and we had close to 1000 blades. We could use them for  few days and toss them and to be honest I got tired of them. 

I found the GSB's to be a lot more consistent and actually could push them further to at least 4-5 shaves.

The PSI's I voted as my favorite since I just feel they are sharper.

I’d rate the 4 blades mentioned in the following order:

Voskhod - smooth and sharp - my favourite blade these days.

Super Iridium - great blade not as smooth as the Voskhod.

Perma Sharp - nigh on identical to the Super Iridium - another great blade.

GSB’s - I’ve never got on with this blade and have struggled to get it to work. One of my least favourite blades.
