    The one you get the most comfortable shave from! Not being sarcastic. Each razor shaves different on each face and beard type.

    You also have to filter in your shaving expertise. It seems that the better I get at this the better I get with blades that before was a little difficult. One of the main things is to make sure the blade is truly sharp.

    I simply love Sheffield blades - the way they feel and the shave they give. Having said that I love my vintage Spartacus, too.
    It is all personal preference, my friend - that's why we have RAD - to test hem ALL out.

    I have a WH Morley that pretty much beats everything else I have, only issue is it doesn't hold an edge as long as some of the others.

    Unfortunately there is no one size universal fits all "best" anything. You literally have to try a few examples to see what is the "best" for you personally.

    That said, I would think any currently made modern full hollow from a reputable maker will shave just fine if you are looking at new. Whether they shave any better than the other grinds is a matter of personal preference mostly. A vintage full hollow in good condition is nothing to sneeze at either.

    Ive personally have not found(yet) any modern full hollow that can beat vintage steel.
    The closest i would say YMMV is Boker.
