    OneBlade Genesis V2 or my Paradigm Titanium SE or my Rex Ambassador set at #3. Can't decide. Depends on what blade I am using in each. Usually a Feather in the Genesis, a proline in the Paradigm, an Astra SP in the Rex

    My Favorite razor is my Weber 3pc. S/S Polished Head 85 mm Classic Handle, then my 1967 M-3 Gillette Knack TTO/DE.
    In that order my preferred razor blade that I use in either of these razors is the Wilkinson Sword Classic DE Blades.

    If I keep getting shaves like I did last night it'll be my NEW SC. But I also really like my Krona. But I still need to give my Pushbutton another chance. Now looking at it I may just become a vintage type of guy.

    Any razor I use for a month becomes my favorite razor. I believe it's like driving a car ..... you get accustom to the way it handles all the curves, straight aways and what speed is best; after awhile its a pure pleasure to drive / shave. :eatdrink013:

    i agree ..after using flat bottom techs for a month ,ttos felt a little weird at first..and yes ,techs are still milder than ttos and require more passes, but i get comfortable dfs+ shaves with techs now..

    As of this moment:

    DE - GameChanger .68
    SE - Colonial General
    Adj - Parker Variant

    For the past few months, the GC is getting all the attention. It gets back to basics and is agile and finely made.

    The only new razor I see in my future may be the Rocca, only because I have a fondness for Muhle products.

    Any razor I've dialed in.

    Most of the time, I'd say a 1940's SS (I was created in the '40s too)

    At the moment, the NEW Deluxe. That's subject to change soon, pending the arrival of another.

    My go to favorite is the Red Tip and the lowly late 40s tech. I actually use the tech more. I also have a Fat Boy, Aristocrats etc and many others but tend to use the lowly tech the most.
