Since I have gathered more than a few razors, it's only fair that I use them all... and to give them equal time, I have set up a rotation:

[Image: ROTATION.jpg]

A - YUMA pot metal razor
B - GEM 1912 SE
C - Ever-Ready 1914 SE
D - GEM Micromatic Clug Pruf SE
E - Merkur 25C Open Comb
F - Cadet TTO-11 Open Comb
G - Cadet TP-01 Open Comb
H - Merkur 39C Slant
I - Bakelite Slant (most likely Merkur)
J - Merkur 45C Bakelite
K - Gillette '58 TV Special Superspeed
L - Cadet TTO-13
M - Parker 22R
N - Wilkinson Sword Classic
O - Lord Racer

Not in the photo is my Merkur 985CL travel razor and my Gillette Old Type Khaki - the former is in my GoBag, the later in the locker at work.

Nice indeed but I believe a bit of cleaning would do them good Wink

Nice collection, Hans! How do you rotate them; one for each day?

Do you have a favorite?

How does the 'Merkur 45C Bakelite' perform?  I already have a travel razor with a Bakelite handle and a metal head, but I was tempted to get the 45c a while back for a travel razor.

Use each for a week, then put it aside. Takes me a few months to go through them all, but it's nice to get back to old friends  Smile

The 45C is a wonderful razor, and I can recommend it for home and travel.
