Im confused about the persona ptfe everyone seems to love. Is it a gem blade? Does anyone have a good link to the bay or amazon? I don't want to buy 100. I want as little as possible to test it out.
They are a GEM brand blades made under the Personna trademark. Made at the Accutek factory in Verona VA, same factory all of the former American Safety Razor Carbon Steel and Stainless Steel SE brands have been made for many decades. GEM. GEM Blue Star, PAL, Treet and private labels like CVS have been made there exclusively. 3 Facet edge blades have the sharpness for shaving, 2 facet edge blades are scrapers. The GEM Stainless Steel blades are made PTFE coated or uncoated.
They do make uncoated GEM stainless steel 3 facet edge blades. I've used them a few times in the past. They worked fine, just not quite as smooth as the Teflon coated blades. tryablade.com sells singles of the uncoated as well as the PTFE coated GEM stainless blades.
Good grief! As mlb549 said, look at Connaught Shaving: connaughtshaving.com/gemss.html They are based in the UK, but their shipping to the US is reasonable. My minimum supply of 400 GEMs is from there. The owner is a nice guy as well. Highly recommended. Put some British soap samples in the basket while you're there.

carlfrommo: Hey guys. Last minute question here. What shot size should I use for flying reindeer?

ordinaryshaver: You want to use 3 1/2 in magnum lead shot, in size T. Problem solved.

ordinaryshaver: No steel, too light and use an extra full choke, unless you have a good blind setup

carlfrommo: Well, last night was a failure. I had one shot, and I didn't lead the red-nosed one enough. I think I ended up shooting the driver. Might have gotten him in the leg. Hard to tell because he was wearing red pants and coat.

carlfrommo: He turned his sled away and landed on the roof two blocks down. Out of range for a second shot. I did notice he walked with a bit of a limp though. He shouldn't be coming in my yard anyway.

mrconklin: Last time I hunted waterfowl. 2 3/4 shells were standard and the cool kids were starting to play with the 3 inch, but most guns weren't made for them. Steel was also just starting to be mandated on Federal and State land.
