I have decided that since I now use straight razors, I will only keep 2 DEs. For now, the 2 that I've decided to keep are a Mergress and a Tech. The Mergress is for a standard, great shave and I doubt I'll be replacing it. The Tech I keep for touch ups and areas that are hard to reach with the Mergress. But I do wonder if I should be keeping something other than the Tech... a slant, perhaps? Can I do better than the Tech? What 2 DE razors out-perform all other DEs out there? I'm not looking for nostalgia, although I'm not opposed to it. I am strictly looking for performance and a close, comfortable shave.
