Lots of great blades out there, but right now I am enjoying using Feather blades the most.

Great shave each time I use one.

When i was still using current blades, the only one I just couldn't use was Feather. I had many at the top including PSI and Wizamet Irridium Supers, both of which I believed to be the same blade just that one came in tucks of 5 the other 10. Gillette 7 O'Clock Yellow and the Russian Greens. Also the 7 oc  Dark Blue. GSB, Rapira Swedish Super Steel. There were others but they don't come to mind . But none were as good as the vintage ones I use now. Even if they came close in sharpness and smoothness none were in the same zip code on longevity.

Eight or nine years ago I would have said Gillette 'Swedes' and Feathers. Now I have to say Kai DE is # 1 with a gang of them more or less close behind. Feather, Gillette 7O'clock yellow, Astra SP, Voshkod, Gillette Nacet, and Silver Blue. We are living in a wonderful period for blades. In the 1960s until Gillette came out with the Platinum Plus and the Super Stainless the 'Super' Blue Blades were a horror. IMHO.

Gillette Spoilers. Vintage blades. 

Love them. Stocked up on them like the apocalypse was coming a couple years ago wherever I could get them.
