If you are asking about safety razor blades, I like the Astra platinum blades. I can get a box of100 for about $10 on Amazon.
Bald by choice, and loving it!

I like the shick extreme 3 for shaving because of the handle but I also have a stash of Dorco ST301.  As for the Dorco, They're scary sharp and I tend to get nicks.  I like them both.  I think it's all in the prep but once any blade starts to chatter, I will nick myself.

I still use a Mach3 to shave my noggin. I find that there is less nicking with 3 blades. Itís been several years since i used a 4 or 5 blade razor. Maybe I need to revisit using additional blades but if I recall correctly I didnít find the shaving experience to be much different.

I started using a Gillette Fusion5 a couple of years ago.  It gives me a smooth shave and the blades last me 2-3 weeks

After a number of years using a three blade cartridge razor and avoiding the high cost of the Fusion, I finally gave the Gillette Fusion a try a couple of year ago.  I am now sold on them.  The shave is great, and nicks are rare, and they do last a long time.  I typically use them for a month. So the high cost is really not that high considering the durability.
