    I rotate between 2 blades day-on, day-off.

    I have other razors, but those are my daily shavers.

    Not a different one everyday. I have maybe 20 shave ready and I usually stick with one for a few shaves then off to another.

    If you are starting out it is a good idea to stick to 1 or 2 shave ready razors until you have your technique sorted. The 2 I learnt on were a Bengall and a Puma. Both full hollow round point 5/8, and very similar. Currently have 40 or so shave ready, so I just random pick one.

    I have quite a few razors but I mostly shave with the same 12 or so. I switch my razor out more or less every week. There are unlesses in there like I am trying to get through a stack of honing, in which case I may change razors every day.

    I try to rotate, but sometimes I get stuck on one razor for a while.

    I rotate daily through 40 odd razors. The advice given to stick with a couple of razors when beginning till you have your technique down is solid advice.

    I usually use a razor a couple few days in a row. But then I think, I haven't used xxxxx in a while and grab that one.
    Sometimes I pick one that just gives an amazing shave and stick with it for a week or so

    Also I agree with the just use 1 or 2 until you are more proficient with your shaves. It helps with the consistency of your success

    I have about 10 razors I shave with, but I usually rotate between 2 (both around 5/8 square tip. one Puma and one W&B). My 2 main shavers take good edges like rest of my razors but these 2 are really easy to hone and I dont mind water stains or anything happenign to them that much. I use my other ones whenever I am in mood or it special day.
