What's the mildest DE head you have tried ?

I would have to say the Feather DE followed closely by the Ikon OSS - but for some reason the OSS actually can cut my stubble with the OC side, where as the Feather DE could not cut my hair at all even though I used a ton of angles and pressure/no pressure.

Third would have to be the Goodfella OC for me.

1. Feather DE
2. Ikon OSS
3. Goodfella OC

Since I have tried a whopping total of three razors I would say that my 1940's Gillette Tech is the mildest.

Feather AS-D1
Ikon SK9 (Open or closed side)

After that a Tech, a Krona and a Sticky.

I can easily get amazing results with the Tech, Krona or Sticky but sadly, the top two razors do not work well for me.

Either a superspeed, a Feather portable, or the iKon SK9. I felt like I had to work to get half-decent results.

The mildest razors I've used are a '59 Flare-Tip SuperSpeed and a '56 Tech. I actually found the SS to be the milder of the two.

Goodfella OC was a major dissappointment. So mild it was hard to get the job done. Good looking razor, though.

I have to say that would be the Merkur 11c. It was too mild for me and it took a lot of effort to even coax a mediocre shave out of it. Gave it to my brother and he loves the thing.

Feather AS-D1. It just did not work for me.

Another vote here for the Gillette Tech. Though I haven't tried many of the others as I had no desire to spend that kind of money on a mild razor which most likely wouldn't work well for me.

Mildest has been the CC side of an iKon OSS and my 1968 SuperSpeed...

I could be wrong,but I believe a lot of folks miss out by using an overly thick protective lather with razors that don't need it.

Goodfella OC, great for the first few shaves after an accidental sunburn.

Feather AS for me. In the end it was just too mild.

I would say the Krona, so mild that it didn't even cut my stubble. 3 pass shaves resulted in DFS if I used a Feather blade and used a little pressure.

Now that's mild! When a Feather in a razor won't cut!
