    Yeah. I'd forgotten about alternate sources. I tend to shop Maggard's first. THanks Linuxguile & Jmudrick.

    When a retailer introduces a branded DE it's a pretty safe bet you can pick up the same razor elsewhere. They're all relying on the same OEM guys in India/Taiwan/Pakistan.

    I have only one safety razor and that’s a Feather All Stainless-Steel Double-Edge Razor, Model AS-D2. Pretty pricey but it will get the job done and leaves zero irritation. In three passes I can get a BBS shave. Hope this helps.

    My favorites. No idea if they're the best because I haven't tried them all. Plus, it's pretty subjective.

    Blackland Vector
    Colonial SS General
    Muhle Rocca R96 (V3)
    Parker Variant
    RR Game Changer

    My top 5 shaving safety razors are all DE. Here’s my list.

    1. Gillette Old Type (thick cap with ball end handle).
    2. Gillette NEWs Long and Short combs (with ball end handles).
    3. Merkur 34G
    4. Gillette Tech (pre or post doesn't matter to me, slight preference for the solid ball end handle).
    5. Feather ASD2 ( a Gillette-length handle and no logo on the top cap and it would be perfect).
