    I wouldn't use the industrial blades at all. Tried it once myself and it was the most uncomfortable shave I've ever had.

    I think the white box ptfe blades might actually be what you're looking for. I bought mine from Ted Pella online, sold as medical dissection blades. They are stainless, ptfe coated, and marked GEM as well. They came in white boxes of 50. Not to confuse you further. Might post a link and let us look at them.

    No confusion mate--it's all good and I appreciate the diverse information. Here's a link to the box I've been seeing on the sites -- (GEM Stainless Coated Single Edge Razor Blades) -- it says inside the graphic for the blade on the box--"for industrial use only"-

    KeithS,

    The blades in your link are indeed the ones I use, and they shave superbly

    They are intended for use in microtomes or for biological sectioning, so 'paint scrapers' they are not !

    Have fun !

    Best regards

    Russ

    Yep, me too. The exact blades. Again, paint scrapers they are not. Buy them, put one in your razor and shave your arm hair. Then, just for kicks, put in a tool quality blade from the hardware store and try to shave your arm. It's amazing the difference.

    Enjoy your 1912. It was my first foray into wetshaving, and is a great shaver!
