    Default Current safety razor rotation

    Hi all,

    I just interested what safety razors people currently use in their rotation?

    I use:
    Fatboy
    Gillette Black Beauty
    Edwin Jagger DE89
    Merkur Progress

    I have many others but these are my regular rotation.
    S&F,
    Andy

    I have two Merkur's - an 11C open comb, and another long handle, closed comb that I am not sure I ever knew what the model was lol.

    I need to add another...

    I use DEs on and off so I have no real rotation, just kind of what I feel like using. Its either the R41 or the feather Stainless or the Tradere OC or jaeger barleycorn.

    I use my Futur the most. From time to time I use my progress or Gillette Slim. I also use SE razors from time to time, mostly my 1912 and my Valet autostrop.

    Gentlemen, I split my shaves between the straight razor and the double edge, with most shaves going to the straight. The double edge razors are used in no particular order. The active razors include: Joris, Feather stainless steel, EJ Barley, Merkur Progress, Merkur 34C, Merkur 11C (open comb version of the 34C), Muhle R89, FaTip, EJ Chatsworth in faux ivory, Gillette Fatboy, Aristocrat, Red Tip, New Open Comb and Knack. Of the group I use the Joris and the Feather most, it seems — two completely opposite razors. Go figure.

    Well, The Cobra is not a DE, but somewhat of an SE.

    My fatboy is in my regular rotation when I don't have time for a straight shave. I'm drawn more and more to more aggressive razors, so my single edge Gem sees a lot of use also, as does my Old Type Gillette.
