    Had it set to 0.74mm as I like a DE on the aggressive side. IIRC the standard is 0.64mm but James can likely set it at whatever you want within reason.

    After listening to someone talk ever wonder who ties their shoe laces?

    As long as injectors fall into the safety razor category, then the PAL adjustable is my favorite!

    The only DE I ever use these days is a Merkur 34C aka the HD.

    What I would have wished was my favourite razor, but I know of only one on the planet, and it's not for sale, is this one:

    I have searched for years on Ebay and never seen one of these in *any* kind of shape, never mind a minty one.

    Edwin Jagger closed comb "Chatsworth" is my only go to DE. I load feather blades. It gives a shave that is competitive with a str8. Easy to clean. A classic IMHO!

    As far as I know, it is made by or called the Essor and is of French origin. The photos are by a chap on SMF who was oh so lucky and found one in remarkable condition.

    In my search, I've seen quite a few Essor single edge razors, but never a DE.

    Here's a couple more views....

    I don't even know if I'd like shaving with it, but it sure looks cool! Name:  Essor_Opened-up.jpg

    My Edwin Jagger DE89 always gives a great performance. The thing is just fool proof.

    I don't do a lot of safety razor shaving lately but I have a Gillette Adjustable ("fat boy"), a couple of New Types (long and short comb, both pretty aggressive), a Super Speed, a Tech, and a travel Tech (these last three very mild). I think they are all really cool.

    But I also have an Old Type, and hands down for me the best shaver is the Old Type. Just the right balance, compact head for tight spots, super controllable. I think it was the height of design, a perfect razor of its type.

    (Also kind of off topic -- I love the Rolls but that ain't no safety razor!)

    I like short fat handles and thus lean toward three piece razors where I can mix and match heads and handles.

    #1 Favorite: Muhle R41 Head on a Maggard short, fat, heavy handle. If feels heavy in my hand which I like. This razor is aggressive and provides a great shave.
    #2 Favorite: The standar Merkur 3 piece head on a short, fat, thick handle. This less aggressvie razor is awesome.

    Honorable mention: Merkur 38 HD. I consider this a step up from the hugely popular 34C. The head of the razor is the same on both. The 38HD has a long heavy handle, which will appeal to those wanting a heavier razor.
