    Feathers are at least a 12
    Swedes are a very good 9.5
    A new Sharp blade would be around 8
    Derbys and Israelis I find equal at about a 6
    And Merkur cruises along the bottom with a 4.

    Hmmm... I am not a consistent DE user but there seems to be a liking for the less sharp of the above blades. Other threads I have seen indicate a preference for the Israeli blades and the Swedish Gillettes.

    +7 feather.

    not that the sharpness leads to cuts, irritation, or accidents. just a really good, smooth, comfortable shave.

    try them and see.

    Sharpest? Probably Feather (10), though they are not always consistent for me. I use them, but my fav is the Swedish Gillette (9.5).
