    Default Poll: What are your favorite features in a DE razor?

    Hi gents, Just some curiosity, what are your favorite features to have in a DE razor? If you could have a super razor, what would it look like?

    I like an aggressive razor. If I was going to do a poll on this topic I would offer more variables and I would make it multiple choice. Just sayin '

    Yeah you're right. I'm new at posting polls. Its a tough call, size, weight etc.... are so subjective. I guess that's the point of a poll.

    Well, we'll see where it goes.

    I chose aggressiveness. Not saying I want highly aggressive razors, rather I stay away from very aggressive razors and look for the mild ones.
    The tale is doon, and God save al the rowte!

    If it could do the dishes and clean the house I'm first in line to buy it.

    Otherwise a close comfortable shave is what I want.

    The knurling on the handle is important to me. The more defined & detailed the better, for aesthetic and gripping purposes.

    I didn't have a chance to vote however, I like the fact that a double edge razor has two sides to shave from.

    The razor removes whiskers and that is all that can be required. That said, I use a edwin Jagger 89. Which is relatively non-aggressive and does what it is designed to do. Most blades, used properly, work well in this razor.
