How many SRs do you own and how many do you have in a regular rotation?

James, you should answer your own question before asking others to do it.

I currently own about 40 straights. I don't have a rotation for razors, soaps, brushes, AS, or EdT's. I shave in the morning, but each evening strop whichever razor I somehow decide I'll be using, as well as picking out a soap, AS, and EdT.

That's an impressive collection Richard. I hope that one day you will do a thread to show them off.

I have a 7 day set and 5-6 other useable razors. I also have about 4 that I would like to clean up and hone if I ever get around to it.
I find that I tend to use only about 4 on a regular basis. I have no rotation right now, I'll use one until I feel like switching or it needs to be honed.

At one point I had 10 TI's (mostly Le Grelot and "...wings") and 3 kamisori.

I'm now down to 5 TI's as I never seem to be able to dedicate enough time to mastering and maintaining them.

So quite a sensible number, but my passion was always brushes anyway...

70+? It's lovely to have a variety to strop and hone. Maybe it's just me? Tongue

Right now I own only one straight razor.

And I'm still learning how to use it.

With about 60 days of SR experience I have have 3 SR at this point.  I think I will stick with 3 for another 60 days until I get a better idea of what I like and what works well for me.

I am at 28 in rotation with 6 on the work bench. I limit myself to two per brand. Luckily I have only one from many makers.

I'm down to ~200 but only have about 40 that I can grab and strop to shave with. Others are wall hangers in shadow boxes. Most of which were honed and shaved with. I have a few to renew also.
And I thought that giving up the coffee maker collecting habit would take up less room..................

I am with evnpar above; pick strop and use.

Advice? don't get so many they become boring or start going into drawers never to be seen again !

I have 7 razors, each one is used once a week in no particular order.  While I like variety, I also like being able to enjoy the razors that I like so for now I don't plan to adding any more.

I currently have 24 straights that were honed and most of which are ready to be stropped and used. Out of the 24 I only have a handful of those that I always keep shave ready. However, lately I was very preoccupied with learning (more like RAD 2.0) DE razors...

I am down to 94.  I have three seven day sets out of those 94.  I choose what to use the night before.

Sometimes I go through a phase of framebacks, then French razors, then Japanese, Spanish, etc.  Mostly though I just choose the night before.

I probably have at least fifty. and if I own it, it's in the rotation. Some may not come up as frequently as others, but they all get use!

Ha!  Nothing like some of these guys but I have 15 or 16 in rotation right now.  I plan on adding more in the future but I have a workable stable now that I like.  Mainly German beauties but a few American made in the mix.
