For me, GSB wins this by a fairly large margin.  YMMV, but I never could get Polsilvers to work for me.

GSB slightly smoother than Polsilvers, similar on other two criteria.  Best blade out there IMO unless you can find vintage Polish Wizamet Polsilvers.

These two are very close in my book.
I'd probably give the GSB first choice if I was packing my bag for travel.
I still use them both, now and again.

It's been a while since I've used either one, but I think GSBs were smoother and Polsilvers were sharper. Polsilvers definitely lasted longer. I was able to consistently get 10 shaves out of them.

Polsilver, for me, on all counts.
Not a huge difference in sharpness, but the Polsilver is the smoother of the two. I also find the GSB falls off after only 3 shaves.

For me the GSB was a disappointment due to all the positive reviews. My face didn't like them at all. Polsilver blades are fantastic though and among my top used blades which also include Perma-Sharp Super and Gillette Nacet.

GSBs tend to have stiction for me - there is an initial resistance to cutting (a minor tugging).  Nice blade but not for me.  Polsilvers on other hand have all cutting ability of Feathers but are significantly smoother and forgiving of mistakes.  For those with imperfect technique, Polsilver over Feather but if you're spot on Feather rules.

The Super Iridium, but, for me, the Perma-Sharp Super beats both.

GSB all the way. I just wish they wouldn't put so much wax on them.

the glue is outrageous as though the mob going to try steal blades out of packaging whilst unloading on docks.  Good God!
