For me it's Silver Blue, but I've only tried this one along with the nacet and green astra.

I voted for Platinum, but I find the 7 O'Clock Black to be of equal quality. Could've gone either way. Doubt

Excellent poll, Charlie.  I could be fine with any of them.  I voted for Astra because of the combination of quality, price, and widespread availability.

I forgot that there are different Astras. Will update the listing.

I like the SS and the SP.

I'm referring to the Astra SP.   The Astra SS does not seem to get as much attention as the SP.

Makes you wonder why makers keep certain brands. I guess they must sell enough to be worth it to P&G.

I think they sell more DE blades outside the US, they keep pushing the multiblade plastic crappers in America. Certain blades may sell well elsewhere.

My apologies, fellows. I thought I’d listed all the “popular” labels. Are these Gillette branded? If so I’ll add it to the list of choices so you guys can vote.

It's hard to keep track of all the Gillette blades.  I've never figured out if all these brands are just marketing or if there are significant, actual manufacturing differences among them.

From the list posted, I have not used Nacet, Platinum and Minora. Astra Superior Platinum is my very favorite blade due to its value. I consider 7O'Clock Super Stainless (Green) equally good, just a tad more expensive.
My vote goes to Astra Superior Platinum

I voted, but my favorite Gillette blade is not my favorite blade....
Edit: The 7 O'clock Super Platinum from India brings back pleasant memories, maybe I'll look around for some.

No problems.  Here are pics of box front and end.

Most are familiar with the ones from Germany.
