hey people so i used the gillette silver blue in my merkur 45 bakelite de razor,
really nice blade, has to be up there with the gillette nacets and rubies too

i'd probably say better then astra sp's and a bit better then dorco titans as the gillette silver blues are very smooth and sharp too YMMV

what are your thoughts and experiences with this blade?

One of the best I’ve used.
i mean i know its a matter of YMMV but for me so far its like is there such a thing as a bad gillette de blade?

honestly if you think about what gillette achieved with their old vintage razors still giving modern razors a run for their money

I'm sure I've said this on another GSB thread, it doesn't work for me at all. No idea why, I never get a good shave with one in any razor I've tried

I think Nacets, Platinums, 7 O'Clock Super Stainless are all great, 7 O'Clock Super Platinums too.

Don't remember all the razors I've tried it in, definitely my Rockwell 6S, Gillette Super Adjustable, Muhle Rocca and brass Karve. A few others too no doubt

im yet to try the black gillette 7 clocks but from what i read soe people hold them in high regard but obviously as you know blades are pretty much personal prefence and what works for you i suppose
