Gillette Slim Adjustable
I alternate between my 66 SS, my 1912 GEN jr, my 48/50 SS and my MM. However I do believe my 1912 is my favorite and I also think I have lost my 48/50 SS to my wife!
Use Edwin Jagger DE87. Truly beautiful razor. The ivory handle is comfortable and does not appear slippery.
Forgot to mentyion that I alternate with an older Gillette. Not sure of the type. Both give remarkable shaves.
Well... I've got a Merkur too; but my Gillettes are my go-to razors.
Models: 1x 1912 and 1x Junior (essentially the same)
And after a whee bit of testing and playing around, I use now exclusively Ted Pella stainless steel SE blades, PFTE-coated for use in the above-mentioned Gems.
For everyday I use a Future. When I move, I use the 37c slant, easier to transport.
A remark moreover: an excellent blade in a razor will be sometimes inferior in the other one.
Example: Astra Platinium is very good on the Future, and average on the slant. Feather is very aggressive on the Future, and much softer on the slant.
This is an easy one, MERKUR ! Enough said.
Boy, this guy V1P3R is certainly getting a lot of milage out of his only post!
Maybe he is waiting till everyone answers.
Oh sorry... my fault.
Ok V1P3R, it's safe to respond now. I'm here... :happy102
If I had to pick one, it would me my old, reliable late 40s Gillette Superspeed.
I would have a tough time not being able to mix in my long-combed New or my Red-Tip, however.
Oh, yeah, and my Schick Krona.
And my Fat-Boy.
And... I have too many to list.
Merkur, Muehle, Parker.
Come on Alexey...You list all those new razors, but you're sitting on some of the most beautiful vintage classics...When you gonna tear into those bad boys...I know you got to want to...)
Welcome To TSD Bro! This Is The Best Wet Shave Board On The Planet!
I have those same razors you listed and they are all great!
I use a Feather Portable.
Gillette Slim Adjustable and Astra SP blades
Gillette classics mostly, such as 65' Slim, 59' FatBoy set at 7-9, and 55' Red Tip, offset only by my SE Gem Gold lid Push Button. I love em all, but lately the Red Tip has grown on me, as I am leaning towards using sharper-but forgiving blades in more aggressive non-adjustable razors. May try a modern non-adjustable DE next in Merkur, Muele, or EJ lines.
At the moment a 1966 Gillette Ball End Tech.
I pretty much only use Schick Injectors
I have an E Schick that I use most of the time. I bought it NOS, unused condition on eBay and it shaves like a dream.
I also use a Schick L1 - also purchased new, unused on eBay.
