    Never saw the Feathers in the blue packs, I have both the yellow and black packs (10's and 5's).

    I too get about 7 shaves out of a Feather and the sweet spot for me is 4-6.
    I have to add a second vote for Bolzano blades. I just recently purchased a Fatip Piccolo open comb; which is a somewhat aggressive razor. 1st attempt with a Feather blade left me red faced and irritated. (I'm sure my technique was partly to blame) The Bolzano however was very close and satisfying. They are a bit pricey though; $20 on Amazon for 30 blades.
    Smarter than I look or, not as dumb as I look. Whichever you prefer.

    Amazon also sells 100 packs for $34.99.

    If I could only have one - Feather without question.

    I really like Persona Reds too.

    Finding your blade and razor is not so easy. I tried a lot of the blade, in that chile and "Feather" - they did not like me. I have a soft 89 head. At the second shaving, it is necessary to pass twice the same site. The blade misses the hairs. I found a blade that fits well with the 89 head, it's "Sputnik", which is often scolded for their excessive sharpness.

    I didn't care for the Feather blades. I went back to basic Derby, 100 for under $10 on Amazon, delivered. Gives BBS shave.

    I find that Kai blades are quite similar to Feathers. Plus they are beautiful: plain white paper wraps and naked (no brand stamps) holographic/rainbow finish on the blade. They deserve to be in MOMA.
