    In no particular order:

    Gillette Red Tip,
    Timeless Scalloped cap and bar,
    Merkur 45 Bakelite,
    Feather Popular,
    GEM (any of the single edged models).

    Some very inexpensive ones are on the list because I just to see if they shave as well as their higher priced counterparts. (Parker TTO, and Weishi should be on the list also.)

    Tradere solid bar

    Hone type 15
    King pelican straight
    Dick Drew straight

    About does it, but the sad thing is, I'm not sure any of these costly razors could give me better shaves.

    There is only 1 that I must have...a D1 Fatboy. Short of that, at the moment, I'm good. I've no desire for a bottom dial. The D1 Fatboy would complete my 1958 adjustable collection. The extra weight over a Toggle has gotta be spectacular. I think all Gillette adjustable are good and get better the heavier they are.

    I would like to try a Futur, just because, but doubt I'll ever buy one.

    My dream razor would be almost exactly the same, but I'd go for an angle that matches the open comb British Aristocrat.

    As for actual existing razors...
    1. Darwin Deluxe
    2. Vibraz razor
    3. Ben Hur/Apollo Mikron
    4. Walbusch B5 adjustable slant
    5. Abercrombie & Fitch brass (old type) slant

    Mine might be too, but I won't know until I get a chance to try that Aristocrat...

    I'm 'fused. How can the Blackbird make the list if you can't get good results? The expense of the instrument mandate it's inclusion?

    Great question!

    1. Timeless .95 open comb
    2. Schick E1 injector (I've been looking for months and can't find one)
    3. Wolfman open comb at .86mm blade gap
    4. ATT SE2

    That's it! Then I'm done...

    I already have some really nice efficient DE razors, but would love to try a few of the more upscale razors.
    1) Rockwell Razors 6S – Adjustable Stainless Steel Safety Razor
    2) Merkur Futur Adjustable Safety Razor
    3) iKon Slant Stainless Steel Double Edge Safety Razor

    My last 2 are vintage razors that I would love to have:
    4) Gillette Tech from my birth year
    5) Schick Injector Adjustable

    1) Darwin
    2) I was part of the tour but I'd love to own the Bunny
    3) Gillette President
    4) Kai Captain Excelia Folding
    5) An exact replica of a NEW Deluxe made out of Tungsten Carbide. It doesn't exist and I made this up but it would be cool to have a razor that won't scuff plus have heft.

    I reckon I am the odd man, or person, out. All of my razors are vintage Gillette except for one Krona. I have no desire to pursue other DEs. These guys completely fill my razor wants and needs.
