    The other blade that I tried a while back that I thought was approaching Feather sharpness was the Gillette Bleue Extra (NOS). I haven't used one recently however.
    The Gillette Bleue Extra is still sold at online stores in France. I am not sure what the deal is there, but prices are between 2 and 3 Euro for ten packs. I have seen them sold in 12 blade packs as well (strange packaging). Maybe they're not the original NOS blades if you were referring to the ones that used to be manufactured in France. Google.fr ...

    Could be.
    Might could get this kind of info from the blade manufacturers. I kind of enjoy just trying different blades in my razors. With all the different coatings and polishing processes, its hard to believe that blade spec's could be counted on to translate to a reliable performance prediction in your razor, cutting your whiskers on your skin. A lot of variable other than the blade.
