Yes...another top five list. Just when I thought my list was stable things changed. First Harvey introduced me to a vintage razors I had not heard of and then I joined a Cobra Classic traveling tour . My revised list of my 5 favorite razors is now:

1) Cobra Classic

2) Wilkinson Sticky

3) Gibbs Click Pen

4) Merkur Futur

5) iKon Open Comb Bulldog

What makes your list?

I use them all in rotation, although I use some of the heads with various handles. The handle that gets most use is an iKon bulldog.

I tend to lean towards milder razors:

Edwin Jagger DE87 (and I have a DE89BA11 Barley on the way),
Feather AS-D1 (All Stainless),
iKon Bulldog 3-piece (second generation, with safety bars),
Weber, and
Gillette Tech with thick handle.
