    The Blackbird is a superb razor. It shaves well above the .58 gap (More exposure) and super smooth. Excellent selection. I could have saved myself a boatload of money had I bought this one first.

    Which ever one I'm using on any given day.

    Injectors introduced me to a whole new level of smooth. I started with an M like the one you are getting, and pretty much walked away from DE’s within a couple months of my first shave with it.

    My favorite? That's too hard to decide. Right now, I have it narrowed down to a group of razors that was made by Gillette between 1938 and 1966.

    I think my Portland Hydra:

    I had it built short, 50mm like a Feather AC blade. It works on those hard to clean up spots better than any straight I own, and keeps an edge better too.

    That's sexy. G10 handles? Full hollow grind? Thanks for posting...gives me some reading.

    That, my friend, is one peculiar-lookin' safety razor!

    I didn’t see safety in the OP anywhere.

    Probably my pick for DE also. Nothing gives a better shave.

    It wasn't mentioned, but this thread was posted in the Safety Razor section of the forum.
    Generally I assume the OP is asking about razors in that particular section, but hey, it could be open to all comers...

    DE - Parker Varient
    SE - Colonial Brass General

    For the past several months, I've used the General almost exclusively. I'll occasionally use the Variant just to remind myself why I've fixated on the General.

    I have become a two razor user. I occasionally still give other razors a chance sometimes, but that is more of an exception, like once a month.

    My number one razor is iKon X3. Its alignment problems is annoying, but I really love the shave it gives: Very mild, but efficient. So far I have not found a better shave than what I get from this one.

    The other razor I use is Saiver traveler razor, loaded with only one blade. This one I often shave with while being in sauna.

    Razorock German 37 slant. Its basically a clone of the head of a Merkur 37C/38C but costs about half as much.
