Right now it is my Weber ARC with bulldog handle paired with a Personna Lab!
Can only narrow it down to these and I left out a few that when I think about I wouldn’t be happy without.
DE: Modern- Paradigm 17-4, Charcoal Level 3 OC and Timeless.95
DE: Vintage- NEW Deluxe Big Boy, 36 US and British 15 Aristocrat
Adjustable: Vintage Gibbs #15 and #17, Fatboy, Slim and Toggle
SE: Schick Type M with Twins from Japan and ATT SE2/1 and Gem MMOC

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.
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.
The one I am using today.
Probably tried 50 more razors since last post on this thread, still Shake Sharp.
hmmm...probably NEW SC, or maybe LC.
that janus toggle looks interesting, following its progress. a karve is in the cards as well.the gillettes still have me at present..the new improved is cool so far.an intro to getting better with old types maybe..trying out the toys..
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.
My No. 1 Favorite, on down to no. 5 - These 5 are my rotation!
1. Schick E2
2. Gillette Micromatic
3. Schick G3
4. Schick L1
DE... for its shave, New Improved.
For it's looks, Aristocrat #15.
Straight - F. Herder 77 Square point.
