Gillette Fatboy (1961 G1)
Edwin Jagger Chatsworth
Post-war ball-end Tech
'46 Ranger hybrid or '46 Milord
'47 Super Speed or '47 Milord
(The Milords I added not because of the similarity of performance, but the cool factor of that shiny gold finish.)
I like most of my razors.
If pinned down, someone said,(sentimental heirlooms aside)
1) merkur progress
2) Gillette executive (D3)
3) merkur futur
Almost as easily could be replaced by, cadet tto14, stahly head on maggards mr5 handle, Berkeley custom shaver.
Sorta undermines my answer, sorry. I like a bunch of them.
My top three:
Charcoal Goods Level 3 open comb in antique brass
PAA DOC Evo in stainless
Muhle R41 2011
Well i had a few razors at one point and all but two. So my 2 favorite and only 2 i use now are
1. Timeless .68 scalloped base plate with 85mm barberpole handle
2. Merker 37c
I used to...well I wouldn't say dislike the Red Tip, but for a long time it seemed just a tad too strong so I sold them off pretty quickly. But after recent uses it's been a very fine razor that's growing on me.
DEs: Sheraton, NEW SC, Fatboy
SEs: Gem MMBT, Schick-Eversharp I Hydro-Magic, Schick Adjustable
My choices are:
1950's Super Speed
Weber Razor/Gillette NEW Long Comb/Gillette Fatboy
Slim adjustable, Red Tip SS, and fat handle Tech.
1. Gillette Fat Boy
2. Gillette Slim Adjustable
3. Barbasol Floating Head
1. Tradere SB or OC
2. Blackland Blackbird SB or OC
3 Wolfman WR1
Old reliable Slim is always in the mix.
Lately also been using a plain old flair tip Ss for a lighter touch.
But I most like my newest buy for now a Schick Krona - popped on eBay for the first time in over a year and got one that just needed cleaning up for $8 (gklauser, good vendor) .
Now I better go delete the app before I start bidding on too many other cool interesting things I don't really need.

Rockwell 6S v2.
iKon X3 paired with a lighter handle.
British Gillette Tech from the 40's with the fat handle.
Gillette New SC
Pearl SHD-33 Closed Comb -- Just right aggressiveness for everyday, nice long heavy handle
Merkur 38C -- Similar head to the Pearl above, but just a little bit less aggressive and a half ounce heavier
Fatip Grande -- Fairly aggressive open comb razor for shaving a two day growth.
Inexpensive as they are, the Pearls and Cadets have been a revelation. I'm sure there are a lot of other good brands out there with the same heads. Anyway, the above 3 are my "go to" DE razors, and by the way, I've decided to cull the herd, so most of the others will go on the market here eventually. I think I can get by with 5 or six razors!
