Enjoying my wet shaving journey...I hope you are too.
My first 200 were Derby's (which I really like), but after alll the Astra SP love I just pulled the trigger on a hundred of those this morning... and I haven't even shaved with one of them yet. I hope that I like them!

After trying feather, derby, astra sp, gillette yellow, gillette black, shark sc, red personna, crystals, merkur, lab personna, personna med prep, & dorco - the winner is:
Shark Super Chrome! Just placed my order. These have given me the closest shave with zero irritation and it's a bonus that they're cheap.
Ladas were my first, and last, 100 pack. Still use them and Dorco 301's occasionally but prefer the straight now.
Someday...but not today.
where can I get a good deal on Red IPs or Crystals? Are there any other Israeli brands of blades, DE or otherwise?
I Came. I Shaved. I Conquered.
Voskhod's.. I do not regret that. Next up for a bulk buy is Feather, Silver Blue, or LADAS!!

My first 100 pack order was a pack of Shark Super chrome- still my go to blade in an agresssive razor like the Fatip and Futur or Gillette New. Most recent were Astra SP- a staple for my DE89 and Merkur HD!
LOSER/BOTOC I will buy your unwanted Sathly live blade head!
I bought 100 Iridiums from Bullgoose

Astra SPs right after I went thru a few sampler packs as a new wetshaver. Great blade!
After trying shark, astras, 7 oclock green and feathers I bought a 100 pack of astras feather was better but since im a noob i tended to fillet my face.
After trying probably half of the total brands of blades out there, I find the Astra's rarely nick me, and give BBS shaves. Even with the same technique using other blades, they still nick me...Astra's don't.
EJ89, Astra SP, Omega Silvertip, XXX, & Pinaud Bay Rum.
Astra SP's. I just bought a 100 pack of them on Amazon 5 minutes ago after reading this thread. I've tried them from a sampler pack I have and they performed very well for me in my EJ DE89. The Gillette 7 O'Clock SP blues and the Super-max platinums were very good as well. Anything with the name Lord on it was not very good for me..... and Derby's were below average as well. Wilkinson Swords were just a step down from the Astra SP's. I'm happy with the Astras and I feel it is time for me to use something consistently for a longer period of time rather than randomly sampling what I currently have. My first 100.... I'm excited.
I just this minute scored 190 Feathers on ebay. My 1st blade purchase since my original sampler pack. Saved myself about £15 on what I would have had to spend elsewhere so I am a very happy man.
