    Default What is your all time favorite Safety Razor?

    With all you folks that have shaved with uncounted different tools, each of you must have a remembered or current favorite Safety Razor. What is your all time favorite?
    That is the reason for bringing this thread to the forum.
    Me; I'll watch and enjoy and will post later!

    For a complete DE shave, a Merkur Vision.
    For touch up with water after a SR shave, a slant.
    For shaving over sensitive skin, a 1949 Super Speed.

    I just received a Rolls razor in a batch of SR's, haven't cleaned it or done anything to it but try to figure out how the darn thing works. I think I have it figured out tho.

    The venerable Merkur Slant 137C, or it's younger big brother, the 139C A.K.A. Slanthammer.
    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.

    When I use a DE, the Merkur Slant, "The Sledgehammer" was fun.

    Also enjoy the Gillette adjustable's a couple of buddies gave me, but for some reason, I get the best shave and enjoy using my Gillette Aristocrat the most.

    Try here Rolls Safety Razor Page and scroll to the bottom for the instructions.

    I am not a big safety razor fan. However I did receive one as a gift from a friend. It is a simple Gem single edge. Mostly I like it because when I use it it makes me think of friendship and the kindness of strangers. I do have several others that don't do much for me except provide a passable shave.

    I would have to say my Futura, with Astra blades. By far the cleanest closest shaves ever are with this razor and blade combo. I have a Super Speed, that does a good job too.
