What is your most and least liked item in your shave den? Mine is my progress and my least is my black beauty. Not that it's a bad razor it just doesn't work for me.

The thing I like most... hmmm, I can't answer that.

The thing I like least? That's easy, the old crappy alcohol based after shaves I bought 30-40 years ago. I have no idea why I still have them. They aren't many, maybe 3.

Best = no way to answer this; my Weber DLC, brushes, soaps, etcetera are all great.

Least = many razors that I don't use since acquiring my DLC. Biggrin

My progress had bushed many of my razors to the back if the line so I know what you mean celestino. I just have a hard time deciding whether or not to get rid of any of them. I too dislike alchahol aftershaves.

Should say had pushed

I tend to go through soap phases and cream phases. In trying to do a week of each on and off now.

Best: Any Proraso soap/cream
Worst: Tie-Gillette Slim & EJ 89l

I rue the day I sold my Progress. In fact I am about to list some razors to sell and pick up another Progress. I like Merkur razors.

I just got one from each of your lists today, Proraso red and the de89. I have held on to my 34c because everyone says they regret selling it.

No best/least, just what I look for more frequently are my straights ... and what I need less frequently are my beloved hones. Tongue

The best: Osage Rub, refrigerated.
The least: Dovo Straight Razor. From fifteen years ago. Tried to use it for two months, but too much blood and too many shakes. Haven't used it since.

Just place the bottle in the freezer a few hours before shaving if you have kids who might mistake it for some new soft drink.

Favorite...wow, that's hard. I'd have to say my favorite razor is my 40's SuperSpeed.

My least favorite is my Micromatic Open Comb. Nicely built and all but that thing is brutal.
