Following my desire to buy a Gillette Slim from the 60's, my wife wants to buy me a new heirloom razor that would make more sense as to why it would end up being an heirloom to future generations and one that would fulfill my needs for years to come. I'm 24, soon to be 25, so it isn't like there is any Year of Birth significance from the Slim.

That being said - I'm looking for suggestions. My current favourite is the 'Above The Tie - Atlas 5 piece' after I saw reviews saying they put the Weber and iKon to shame in terms of quality of finish.

I currently use a Edwin Jagger DE89BL and am looking for something a bit more aggressive.

I'd appreciate any feedback you guys could give me.

Best -

I have not tried an ATT but I can speak positively of the fit and finish of both the iKon OC Deluxe (current model) and the Weber Polished Head. I find both to be very efficient without a ton of concentration required, unlike the Muhle R41.

I would consider the Tradere SB.

This is hard. I bought Muhle R41 but iKon SB looks decent. If you want something less common search within American brands.
