Just like the title says. Do you have a particular razor that is your grail? The one you've incessantly searched for in the wild since you discovered wetshaving? And if such a razor exists for you, have you found it yet? Mine was a Gillette New Improved. I finally found one in an antique shop after almost 3 years of hunting. Cased and in barely used condition for only $18. [Image: abevusu7.jpg]

I'm not a vintage razor guy but I would still be really excited if I found a Red Dot Fatboy.

DE, no. SE, yes. First it was a Gem OCMM which I found in the wild. Then it was my EverReady Streamline. While I didn't find it personally in the wild, I got it from someone who did. Still looking for a Gem Jewel or EverReady Streamline in the wild myself along with an open comb Damaskeene.

I'm not obsessed with possessing it, but I wouldn't mind acquiring a nice Toggle.

No vintage ones for me as i went through too many of them and prefer my Weber DLC.

Congratulations on the acquisition and enjoy the razor.

Sorry - I used my first DE in 2011 August, still learning and now also got a bit of RAD - so still looking and buying new razors :)

Soon I'm reaching 36 new DE razors, and not stopping before I reach the 50 mark.

But I enjoy the UFO Goliath XL custom 95 mm with my R89 head highly !
I will rate this combo 9.5/10

Barbasol Floating Head. Some modern manufacturer or artisan needs to make a shamelessly blatant copy of this head design and market it. I have not found an easier, more efficient razor.

Hmmm. Although I'm not much into vintage razors, my ultimate vintage find in the wild would be ... NOS Hoffritz travel slant with case.

I have been coveting the EJ Chatsworth forever, just can't seem to twist my own arm enough to shell out the money for it...I love the look, but since I got into wet shaving for the economy, something in the back of my mind keeps me from spending really big money on shaving stuff.

I'm pretty happy with my current assortment of razors. My Cadet OC and Merkur 37C work very well for me. If I did want anything, it might be a Long Comb Gillette NEW, but I don't think those are very hard to find.
