Hi
I have used up all my personna 74 blades and I’m struggling to find some more.
Is there any blade that is very similar to this?

That shaves as well? Yes, and many better. Do they shave as long? That's subjective. I never got more than seven shaves from one and I sold approx. 75 of them on Ebay years ago and laughed all the way to the bank. Wink

Almost all modern Gillette & Personna blades.

Haven't used the '74s but I have used the gillette spoilers and vintage Schick blades and I like gillette Nacets just as much as the 2 vintage blades that I have used.

I mostly agree with the above statements. the P74s are only noted for keeping an edge for long extended periods of time...when compared to their peers. But modern production has caught up with old breakthroughs. they arent sharper, smoother, etc than current production blades.

So...for my thoughts on hyper-miling a blades and getting every last penny's worth out of a blade, check my thread about that here.
