    Tyke121,

    It's a tie between my English Ever-Ready 1912 and my GEM Micromatic Open Comb - both SE razors.

    Have fun !

    Best regards

    Russ

    My late 40's Aristocrat, I have not tried any I enjoy more. I am going to give the new U.S.A. made Weber a shot.

    I only have two vintage razors, a 1950 Aristocrat and a 1964 Super Speed. I shaved with the Aristocrat today and it was my favorite. But the next time I shave with the Super Speed, that'll be my favorite.

    Do you guys really feel that much difference in the razor itself, I have many, about 10 maybe a few more and they all seem to shave the same.
    I do have a favorite but it's because of the feel, and I like it better than my Mekur. I find the blades make the difference, as if I don't like the blades even in my favorite, DE, I don't like to shave. The biggest surprise is that my Schick injector gives me better shaves than I ever thought it could.

    I've got an old Henckels Rapide, but I haven't any of the blades shave ready though... I can't get the technique right honing them, to be honest. I'd say those are probably my favorite though.

    Pay attention, *they're talking about safety razors. This is a safety razor. If you have any more questions or wisdom to share, we'll talk later.
