Hiya,

I'm wondering if anyone knows if there is a blade that is sharper than Israeli Red pack Personas but not quite as sharp as Feathers...

In my blade sampler pack I got Gillette Platinum blades, but how do they differ from the Gillette 7 o'clocks?

Gillette Platiums fit exactly that description. They're discontinued now though.

Easily my favorite blade, sharper than red packs and IPs but smoother than feathers.

Strange, I found the Red Packs to be sharper and smoother than the Gillettes.

That covers just about every blade worth shaving with, Crystals, Derbys, Treet Classics, Treet Platinums, Treet Blue Specials, Dorco ST-301's, Gillette 7o'clocks(all 4 versions), Polsilvers, Super Iridiums, etc, etc...


YMMV

I would suggest the mighty Astra (green/white).

Gillette's went Russia!!
We had this convo recently!!

People just stockpiles as if WW3 were gonna wipe out all of the "Swedes" versions :w00t:

Gillette Yellows, Astra Platinums, Bics possibly (2 shaves max but smooth).

Gillette 7 o' clock yellows and the astra plats definitely fit the bill.

I stopped at 300 stockpiled blades and I was kindly offered more than that but it wouldn't be fair on both the B&B community and my wallet if I bought them all. Athough I'll probably crack in a week and stockpile some more.
