What exactly does it say?

It does  not “say”; it “communicates”:

I have a handful that I like. Nacets, Gillette Silver Blues, Israelli Personnas (Reds), Astra SP, Feather, Gillete 7 O'Clock Black, Crystals. Since I have a large stash of Nacets and GSB's I will probably be using just those two soon. Some of the others are down to one or two blades.

Voskhods used to be my only blade.  But I've since moved on to Gillette Silver Blues.  I find them to be smoother and hold their edge a couple shaves longer.  My son uses the Voskhods exclusively.

Surprised there aren't more exclusive Polsilver users and Permasharp users (I haven't tried the latter, but know there are many avid fans).

I have other blades (Kai, Feather, Astra), but more and more I find that I'm using GSB's.  For me, they fit the bill for both smoothness and sharpness.

Lots of familiar names, but with DE blades I'm down to a couple.  Feathers would be the ones I buy 200 packs of .. I've used Polsilvers with good results, as well as Sharks.  I have a few packs of Old Schick Plus Platinums that are in the hoarding drawer.  So to the OP, I am mostly down to Feather DE

I used to switch blades for a change of pace, but now my beard is so hard to cut that I only use Feather.  The beard on my upper lip will cause a new Feather to pull.  Sad but true.
