The chinese schicks work really well for me. I also got some of the made in holland platinum 5 blade packs a while back. I have the Personna 74's, and they are my least favorite blade.
Or these :)

This is great info as I'm getting one or two Schicks and was wondering about blade choice and availability. But whoa, those NOS blades are Merkur-priced! The B&B brothers and sisters are fantastic and most appear to be in it for the love of shaving and comraderie(?), not to make a buck. Thanks again.

Thoughts on their performance soon ; )

Cool, glad you found your blades! Hmm, tempted to stock up on these.
The supply of NOS Schick Plus Platinums on eBay have dried up over the last year. You used to be able to buy bulk, though it cost an arm and leg; now they come in dribs and drabs. I like these a bit better than the 74's, but the latter last much longer. The Chicks are definitely less smooth than either, but still better than the Pellas or any other versions, at least in my experience.
