Let me know if you find anything better.
That sounds like about the best price I’ve seen. They are very difficult to find on sale, or for a price that would be in any way similar to most other blades.

vtmax, thanks for sharing that Gillette ad! It’s always interesting to see some of the early wet shaving marketing, and the idea presented sounds like a reasonable idea. However, the last dud blade I came across was a Gillette Nacet, with the wax spots, whereas I’ve never had a dud Personna Super (Lab Blue), which comes clean as a whistle in its wrapper. (Obviously, a blade can be a dud for a number of reasons, but — just sayin’…)

Someone recently said that the wax spots help hold the blade in place inside the razor head. That was the first time I’d ever heard that, and frankly, my thinking is that if you need some kind of adhesive to hold a blade in place inside the razor, then that’s a razor you probably shouldn’t use for shaving. Undecided
Whenever I go to shave, I assume there’s someone else on the planet shaving, so I say “I’m gonna go shave, too.”

I only use 3 blades primarily Kai, Feather, Polsilver SI. For me, Kai is one blade I can shave my entire life without getting bored. It's an awesome blade.

My second place is a tie between Polsilver SI and Shark Chromes. All three blades are great for my skin.

I change my vote to Feather DE blades. I found the perfect blade and razor combination for my skin. Nothing shaves smoother or closer at the moment.
