I have read that the merkur 15c and 33c aren't too aggressive. Your favorite least aggressive DE?

So far the Barbaros TR-1 takes that title.  
The iKon OSS is pretty great, too.

The Canadian Gillette Tech is mild but almost hilariously efficient. You don't even feel it shave, and yet all the stubble is gone when it's done.

Rockwell 6S has a range from super-mild to moderately aggressive and all the settings are superb!

That's true.

It's a beautiful shaver.

I would have to say the Muhle/EJ DE89 as they are readily available. However, I still think the Weber DLC is the best least aggressive shaver, in my opinion. Shy

Of the modern razors I have: an iKon V2 slant.

But I prefer the vintage.  Best value is far and away, no contest, not even close, the 38-41 Gillette Tech.  Probably one of the best values in all of wetshaving.  

Of the more exotic vintage razors, I prefer my Swing two piece.  I will need to take a quick picture, can't find one handy.

Mergress set at ONE. I've found the extra heft and natural angle lets me take the training wheels off and try different combinations of blades and gaps without getting into trouble.

This struck me again the other day (I own an H4). Such a simple and effective tool.

Another vote for the Tech. In addition to being a great shaver, it also has a very slim head, which makes shaving under the nose easier.  I like mine with a nice sharp blade (e.g., Feather).
