I concluded that all three types of these blades is the best for heavy beard and sensitive skin(for me at least).
who is more sharper between the three ?
who is more smoother between the three ?
who is more longevity between the three ?
what's your choice?

Perma-Sharp Super

My vote goes to the GSB for smoothest and Sharpest.  I could never even begin to tell which lasts the longest since I always change out my blades long before they're actually dead.  I'm all about making myself comfortable.

I would have to go with the Perma-Sharp super blades. I have not tried the GSB blades and the green super stainless did not work well for me at all. I found the Perma-Sharp blades to be very smooth and they gave a very comfortable shave.

Green gillette is a really smooth and sharpsharp blade...the GSB was a bit harsh when i tried them think i must give it a new try. Perma sharp is okey but have not had a wow shave with them.

Strange question, IMHO.  GSBs easy - don't know about longevity here.

Verdict...GSBs, no question.

Next poll?  Merkur vs. Derby vs. Personna Lab Blues.

Green would be the sharpest imo, with Permasharp and GSB joint second. Smoothest was the Permasharp, followed by green then GSB. Longevity was much of a muchness, with all 3 going 5-7 shaves.

My favourite was the Permasharp

Of the three, I prefer the Permasharp.  Best combination of sharp, smooth, and long-lasting.  YMMV.

I LOVE Perma Sharp Supers and actually dislike GSBs (they just don't agree with me). I have never used Gillette greens but I do like the yellows.

Are you guys awsre that there are two different 7 O'clocks in green boxes? One is from India and the other made in Russia. Since I dont use modern blades I cant recall what the differences are but I do remember that there are two.

I would take the Perma-Sharp over the Gillettes any day. I find the GSB to be particularly irritable to my skin and for that reason it is toward the bottom of my list for smoothness. It is way too harsh when compared to the Perma-Sharp, Rapira, Polsilver, Astra and many others. I still find it amusing that my experience is so different from that of others who praise the GSB so much, showing YMMV is definitely true. I'll give the GSB another try this weekend to see if I have a different experience with it. As of late I prefer the Rapira Lux followed by the Polsilver for overall smoothness, comfort and efficiency, not to mention how inexpensive the Rapira blades are. The Rapiras are far superior to the GSB for me and a far better deal.
