    I prefer a aggressive Se with a sharp blade... something you really have to drive.

    Mild razor with a sharp blade, most definitely. I like my Gillette black handled SS or Schick Krona with a Wilkinson Sword blade or Red Personna.

    Aggressive razor and a sharp blade. Slant with a feather.

    I've had great shaves with so many combinations, but I tend to prefer a smooth blade and an average razor. Like a Rocket and a Gillette 7oClock yellow.

    I prefer a mild + sharp. I use a 40's Tech with feathers for my daily.

    Well, once I gave up shaving in the shower


    I moved on to using a Rocket Jr (aristocrat jr) with, (the crowd shudders) Merkurs. Makes my little face happy.

    Although, a Slim Adjustable set nice and high loaded with Astra Superiors makes its way into my rotation pretty regular too now days.

    So if like me, you are one of the two people who think a Merkur is sharp, then a less aggressive razor with a sharp blade, and the adjustable set aggressive with a somewhat mild Astra.

    I prefer a mild razor with a sharp blade myself... at the moment thought I'm using an open comb English with crystal blades.

    Aggressive razor + mild blades. My setup right now is a slim adj. set to 5, which is roughly equivalent to a red tip, and red pack personna blades. I get great shaves from this setup.

    Agressive razor, sharp blade, if I din't want a close shave; I would grow a beard.

    Interesting. I only like sharp blades. But I like razors varying from mild to aggressive.

    50's ss, aristocrat, fatboy, super adjustable, HD. I like them all with Astras, swedes, and 7 o' clock yellows.

    Wow, I gave a lot of razors away. I'm down to five.

    I'd have to lean towards the more aggressive razors. The 40s Super Speeds I have leave me with irritation and/or weepers, and the fatboy/red tip/slim don't. (Must account for my month-in newbness)
