Hello Gents,
Hopefully someone with Sabre experience can help me.
I really want to like my Blackland Sabre.  My regular rotation includes a Blackbird and a Dart.  Both extraordinary razors.
I’m certain that my technique with a GEM style razor is also at fault, I just don’t pick up the Sabre, its not enjoyable or efficient.
I simply don’t get a comfortable shave from the Sabre level one.  Maybe I just need to switch to a level two head?  
I’ve tried Gem Blue Star and PAL with the black coating.  I just don’t feel that these blades are sharp, or smooth.
Are there some GEM single edge blades that I’m missing?

GEM stainless ptfe. GEM blades don’t feel very sharp, but the stainless ptfe are the ones.

Shane recommends Personna PTFE-coated stainless steel blades. He ships the razors with 3 of them. Have you tried them?

I have a level 2 and love it.
