thanks gents. I'm sort of kicking myself now for discarding the gillettes when i had them. one of my pet peeves was the dispenser....it seemed incredibly hard to get a blade. This time around, I just popped the container open with a knife :roll: :D

Clive, that's the experience I have had with Personna 74s, in my opinion the best blades ever made. I have to pry the top off of the dispenser and peel each blade off.

let me take guess.....winning the powerball lottery is easier than finding a supply of the 74's? :lol: :lol:

Clive, last I looked, you could find them, but they were priced really high - more than I would be willing to pay. Fortunately, I have a small supply that should last me for quite awhile (both DE and Injector). In the experience of a good number of shavers, the Personna 74s last twice as long as, or longer than, modern stainless blades of good quality, so a stash of 74s is equivalent to twice as many of most any other blade.

Within the last couple of years, when prices were unreasonable for an outright purchase, I managed to trade some Light Brigade Wilks for some 74s.
