    Default Blade and source

    What is your preferred DE blade and what source do you use to acquire it.

    I've been using the Feathers and I bought them through Cotton something I think. As you can imagine the blades last a long time for me. I usually use the razor about twice a week.

    I've been thinking about dropping down to the Merkurs which seem smoother, which is why I ask.

    Swedish Gillettes from West Coast Shaving. Second goes to Derbys, available on ebay.
    I find the Swedish Gillette to be much smoother than Feathers. My son-in-law also uses them and he has very sensitive skin. My son prefers Feathers.
    I wouldn't touch a Merkur blade on a bet. They don't work for me at all.

    Feathers first, then Derbys

    +1 on the Merkur. Same for 7AM. Don't work for me.

    Derby blades off of eBay. I like them as much as the Feather blades and better then Merkur.

    I've collected a nice little stash of blades (swedish Gillette's, tesco platinum coated from England, and some generic blades from Loblaw's here in Canada (which I secretly think are Swedish Gillette's).

    That said, I'm still looking for a used DE razor - preferably Mercur HD or Classic, or 38C if you know anyone selling one inexpensively (not that they're all that expensive to begin with, but y'know)

    When I use de's, I just use persona's, they're cheap and easy to get.

    I have a bunch of Israeli Personnas. I like those and Wilkinson Swords. The WS are too pricey for me, but I rarely touch the DE anymore. I suppose a 10 pack could last me a couple months.

    I have a box of feather and a weishi that I haven't used for 3 or 4 months that used to keep me pretty happy.

    I have only used Merkur and I think they work very well. But since I started shaving my head the blade is dull afterwards. MAybe I should try some other manufacturer of DE blades.
