That's right. This is not a Top 5 list.
I would love to know how you would rank all of the modern razors you've used that accept Artist Club blades.

I've never used any, so I can't start this off.

Generally at the bottom of the list both in Single Edge and in general.

Of the ones I have tried I would rank them as:

RR aluminum Hawk V2
RR aluminum Hawk V1
Colonial brass General with WCS handle
Colonial brass General with factory handle
Ikon El Jefe simply not for me at all

In general, I get my best shaves from either my DE or GEM format razors followed by the Feather FHS/Valet Autostrop/OneBlade format then the Schick Injector E & G with the AC format razors nice but bringing up the rear.

Feather Artist Club DX (both versions)

Asylum Rx


All the others I've sold because they didn't give me the same quality of shave as the above.

Interesting that not one person included the ATT SE_ razors; I get fantastic shaves from it. I came to this thread wondering how well it stacked up against others. I am looking forward to seeing others ranking.

ATT has a GEM format so that was what I picked over the ATT AC format.  And the ATT G1 with the newer revised head is fantastic.

I've only tried the General and the original Cobra.  Of the two, I much preferred the General.

The key to the AC system is the Schick Proline blade! It is the best AC blade, sharper and more efficient than Feather and Kai blades. It's the only reason I still use an AC razor.

I’ve never heard of these blades before; where do you get them?

Japan, small packet shipping

Google Search "rakuten chic proline p-30" and a couple of links should come up.

Once you find out the correct cutting angle of the Rx, similar to a Schick I'd say, it gives great shaves.

I get them cheap from Rakuten in Japan. Choose small package shipping and you are in for a big pleasant suprise.

General (Aluminum)w AC Pro Super blades)
Asylum Rx
Cobra Classic
ATT SE-1
El Jefe
Alumigoose 1
Alumigoose 2

Those are the ones I have tried, in my order of preference.  Out of all those, The General is the only one I kept.
I am looking forward to buying the SS General, and I will likely also buy the "new & improved" El Jefe when it's ready.
