    Default Gillette 7 O'Clock Green Super Stainless-"Rodney Dangerfield?"

    I just finished another series of 4 shaves with the Russian Gillette 7 O’Clock Green Super Stainless blade. All four shaves were excellent: smooth, close, and nick free. I think the poor Russian Greenie is a much under appreciated blade. They tend to take a back seat head to head with the Russian Yellows and Indian Green Permasharps and Indian Blacks. They cost a few pennies more than the Yellows, about the same as the Indian Greens, and less than the Blacks . Still, at about $20/100 shipped, they are a very good blade. I keep some on hand...I enjoy a little variety as long as the quality is there.

    As always……YMMV.

    I like these as well always give a smooth irritation free shave. I think all the 7 o'clock range work pretty well so much so that I've stocked up on all of them in case like other blades they at some stage disappear.

    I just recently started using the Gillette 7 o'clock yellows. They're pretty nice.
    What's your source for the Russian Greens? I might have to give them a try.
    BTW, thanks for the Rodney Dangerfield reference. I loved that guy. If you say that these blades "get no respect" like Rodney Dangerfield, then I've got to try them.

    Now I think I'll have to go watch Caddy Shack!

    I love the Greens. I have a 300 count stash! Between that and my 300 count stash of Wilkinsons Swords (which I find to be similar in performance), and my 4 straight razors, I think it's safe to say I have a lifetime supply. And an unhealthy compulsion, hahaha.

    Razors Direct carries bulk supplies of the Greens at a good price.

    I pulled out another Gillette 7 O’Clock Green Super Stainless blade this week. I just finished my 5th close, smooth shave in my Slim set on “6”. For me, it is right up there with the Gillette Silver Blue (have 100+/-) and Gillette Platinum (have 50+/-)
    .
    As always, YMMV.

    I am going to go ahead and order 100 this time: $20.69 shipped.

    Yep, I like the Personna Med Preps (have 100 +/-), Polsilver SI’s, Perma-Sharp’s, Rapira Platinum Lux, Voskhod’s, Viking Sword’s, and Israeli Red Personna’s too. I like to have some variety. I don’t use any blade that I can’t get at least 4 great shaves from.

    I really like the Greens in my DE. I did a full month of shaves with one once (it was noticeably dull by the end) but proved it was possible to be frugal and still presentable.

    I'm, however, not a fan of them in my shavette. They don't feel as smooth or sharp.

    This is a prime example of YMMV for me. I have tried these in a couple different DE's an just don't get the shave I get from other options. The one plus is that they don't burn me up like the blacks do. Again YMMV. Lince I really really like that brush. Every time I see it just gorgeous!
