    My favorite safety razor is the Gem 1912 SE. Just about as close as you can get to shaving with a straight IMO.

    My 1949 Gillette SuperSpeed is at the top of my DE list.

    Same here, although that may change. I recently purchased a Vintage Gillette Fatboy Adjustable on ebay.

    Before I switched to a str8 my favorite DE was a 1930's Gillette New Open Comb.

    Fat boys are the gold standard for DEs
