Even though I have enough of each different blade to use exclusively for the rest of my life, I  enjoy the variety.  I use Personna 74s and Super Stainless both Great Britain and U.S., Gillette Platinum  Plus , Spoilers and Stainless, Schick Stainless,  Super  Stainless  and Plus Platinum and Wilkinson Light Brigades and Super Sword.  I made a conscious decision that since I knew I'd develop a acquisition disorder  I'd go with the least expensive one, vintage blades.

Ok, 2 blade person now Smile This thread made me try Feathers again for the first time in over 9 months and the result was BBS in two passes with no irritation.

I use three DE razors, many brushes, and many soaps and creams.  There is only one blade for me and that is Kai.

I use Personna Labs at home and Voskhods when I travel. The reason for that is Voskhods only last 3 or 4 shaves so I don’t feel like I’m wasting the blade by throwing it away at the end if the trip. I usually get 7 shaves from the Personnas.

I have tried and have many DE blades, but have settled on Polsilver Super Iridium exclusively for by beard. I just bought 2000 of them. My scalp is more forgiving, so I use the other blades I have to shave my head.

I do not use only one type of DE blade. I could not possibly be that committed and disciplined in this hobby.

That being said I think I could happily limit myself to my favorite 3 vintage blades. Yes...that I could do, and as luck would have it I figure that based off of what I currently have on hand of those types of blades I have 55 years of smooth shaves ahead. The math breaks down to 20 shaves per blade and 208 shaves a year.

I recently revisited Gillette Silver Blues and think I may make a switch.
I'm a serial monogamist when it comes to DE blades.

I recently shaved after a 4 year hiatus, and used a Gillette Silver Blue in a Ball end Tech, and had a pretty awful shave. I don't know if the blades were in rough shape or what, but it was certainly not what I was hoping for!

I do a lot of shooting: pistols,rifles, and find that each weapon has a bullet Brand, weight, etc that it likes better than any other.
Even 2 identical weapons shoot different bullets more accurately.

So I'm of the opinion that Each individual razor that you have , will have a preference for ONE BLADE.
So if I have 8 safety razors, there is a possibility of each one shaving better with a different blade.

Therefore, as in achieving the best accuracy from a weapon requires testing different bullets, I am doing the same with my razors.

Its possible that I will end up with 8 different brands of blades.

Yes I understand what you mean. As a guitarist I have found that each of my guitars sounds best with a particular style/alloy.

I have some 2000 Voskhod, 95 Wizamet Suoer Iridium, and 70 Kai on stock, which shows the relative use of each. Apparently, I am a Voskhod man.
