    Saw something like this on another board and thought it'd be fun to transplant over here.

    Each razor listed starts with 50 points. Each day, once per day, you may hurt one razor and heal another. Take 5 points off of one and add that 5 to another, then copy and paste the adjusted scoreboard into your post (I'll demonstrate).

    No need to discuss or justify why you hurt/heal a particular razor; it's nobody's business and would just clutter things up.

    The List (so far):

    Old Type - 50
    New Improved - 50
    NEW - 50
    Techs - 50
    Early TTOs (open combs up to WWII) - 50
    Earliest "Super Speeds" - 50
    Red Tip - 50
    Blue Tip - 50
    Plain Tip - 50
    Late model (black handle) flare tip - 50
    President/Diplomat/Aristocrat - 50
    Fatboy - 50
    Slim - 50
    Black Beauty - 50
    Super Adjustable - 50
    Lady with stars - 50
    Trac II - 50
    Atra - 50
    Early Schick injectors (all earlier types) - 50
    '50s era Schicks (Hydro-Magic, etc) - 50
    Later model Schicks
    Schick Adjustable - 50
    Pal Injectors - 50
    Early Gem/EverReady - 50
    Micromatics - 50
    G-bar - 50
    Late model Pal SEs - 50

    For simplicity I've tried to cover the basics classes and standouts issued here in the States but if you see anything that just has to be added, or needs corrected, feel free to point it out.

    Hopefully these all are common enough that most of us have had a chance to try many of them. If you're on this board, something here should appeal to you!

    Oh, one last word about honor: vote only for/against razors you've used and are familiar with. Please don't skew voting by hurting/healing according to reputation a razor you've never used.

    By the way, I have no idea how long this might run.

    Good move, PoM.

    You guys don't have to but it might be easier as the cut/past proceeds to move your heal to the top of the stack and your hurt to the bottom, as I did, and you c/p the guy who went before you.

    what would you think about adding modern aggressive open combs as a class? (Fatip, muehle r41, etc...) there's nothing else quite like them. And how about combining NEW and NEW improved? Historically they are distinct razors, but from what I remember the heads on the razors are very similar. I think this would be consistent with the way the list already combines early TTOs, early Super Speeds, etc...

    While waiting for answers, I will:
