Just ordered another 200 blades from Polsilver-blades.com, bringing the grand total to 600 blades, I will worry about moving to a new brand at that time. For now, I'm just carrying on as normal, getting that extra shave out of each blade...Anyhoo not that I'm thinking about it or anything but anyone have a Polsilver replacement in mind? Heard the Perma sharps come out of the same factory and are comparable?

Your thoughts on them or others. Yes this is somewhat of a thread highjack but it is related to the topic since once our collective stashes run out we will either stop shaving altogether or find a reasonably good replacement.

I got another 100 -- just in case I somehow defy the life insurance company's expectations by fifty years or so.

The Perma-Sharp Supers are very nice, but I find the Gillette Silver Blues a better blade. Personally, I find the Wizamet Iridium Supers to be the best blade I have tried. Shy

celestino, where the heck do you get Wizamet iridium supers? I've never seen them for sale anywhere. Are they a vintage blade or something?

Jeff, I bought a very large amount, two years ago, from a gentleman in Spain.
I am not sure if he still has any for sale.
Here is his website: http://www.superiridiumblades.com/

Good luck.

Good luck.

I also purchased 1,000 blades from him several months ago, not sure that he has any more though.

Thanks guys, I checked it out but it looks like the last update was from back in May where he received a small batch. Those are likely way gone by now. Maybe I'll shoot him an email anyway.
