    Right now I have two, but I’m at work. There will be more when I return home. I have many but will likely reduce the actual count when I get time. I’d like to have it down to the display cases. I’m very busy these days. I also have a bunch in the to do pile that need scales, honing, restoration work of some kind.

    I’ve cut back to 3.
    - My very first cheap razor that is remarkably efficient,
    - Tim Zowada custom in Damascus,
    - Robert Williams Purist
    My RAD is complete for now. I’ve changed focus to SAD. Lol

    I have 33 straight razors and shave with every one of them. I also have and seldom use 4 DE"s and 1 Schick injector.

    I have 14 razors and 13 of them are in my rotation, I choose the next one in line each day.

    I want 14 so I have a 2 week rotation so I either need to give an old smiler with a broken scale some experimental love or better yet get myself another razor. I got a hankering for an old USSR piece.

    The only razor I don't use is a tiny little one that I can't get on with.

    It's either for nose hair or or its a childrens straight

    I own 10 I believe. Took a little while to find the one I really like; been using the one for 1.5+ years now. Someday I'll lose the others.

    I currently have 4 razors but don't really rotate through them in any meaningful way, I just use the one that 'speaks' to me at any particular moment. For a long time now that has been a beautiful Genco Next 11/16 which possesses an astoundingly thin extra full hollow grind. My other razors are a Gold Dollar 66, Dovo Best Quality 5/8 and a Kiya Ichogake Kamisori.

    Aloha!

    I have two homes so I break up my razors per home.

    Home 1 - Four straight razors, two DE

    Home 2 - Fifteen straight razors, three DE

    I may acquire one more straight razor ant that will probably be it. I can barely use all that I have now. I may acquire one more DE and that will be it on the DE side.

    Soaps and creams? Yikes, that's another story. I've got more than I'll use in my remaining lifetime.
