Went back to the Israeli Personna blades today, after flirting with Derby's. The Derby blade was OK, close to a Merkur, but performance dropped off very quickly: I can get a week of shaves off a Merkur, but only three days off the Derby. For my face the Israeli Personna's are the only blades I can consistantly combo with the Progress and dial UP with each successive pass without getting those little "blood freckles" or razor burn.

The combos of the Progress/Personna and the Hydrolast/Skin Food are really turning out to be the bee's knees for me!
