    Thanks! I guess that's the obvious way. haha. Weird though, most forums search boxes don't actually work well like that. Even though they should...

    The links were great! I've never seen a Rolls before, I think one will definitely become part of my stash one day.

    For modern razors, I'd say that yeah a 23c/180/23001 (23c is a designation a large retailer uses, 180 is the internal SKU of Merkur's US distributor, and 23001 is the official Merkur designation. I mention it, because a lot of people are curios about why the same razor has so many model numbers...) is a solid choice. For vintage, lady Gillettes are popular, as well as long handle super adjustables. Long handles are generally popular in general, but just like face shaving for us guys, there is a lot of YMMV from what I've read and heard.

    Magpie - The Henckels Rapide are gorgeous! Definitely looks like a great razor... think I'll add one of those to my list as well. I can see this is going to be a challenge to narrow it down to a few I want to first try out.

    Sargon - Thanks so much! I'll look the Merkur you mentioned as well. They sounds like they'd be pretty simple to find too, which is definitely a plus.

    I am still new to shaving with a DE (alittle over a year). I started with a Gillette adjustable, which I liked once I figured out how aggressive I wanted my shave Which for me was an 8 and sometimes a 6 depending on where I was shaving. I recently received a Lady Gillete Star DE for my birthday and I love love love it. As I said I am still pretty new with limited experience with the various razors. Just wanted to offer my experience with the DE razors Good luck!

    For learning, I would consider a vintage Gillette Slim adjustable or a Gillette long-handled superspeed adjustable. You'll have to get on eBay. I use a slim adjustable on my head dialed to 5. At least with an adjustable you can dial in your desired level of aggressiveness!

    Another vote for a Lady Gillette. They are basically a nice and mild superspeed head with a longer handle. Easy to use, forgiving, and attractive to boot.
