So? How many razors in your den? All types. Don’t be shy. Like most of us I’ve bought, sold and PIFfed many more than what currently occupies my shelves and drawers. I’m guessing my all time total # would be somewhere north of 50 - pretty low by many shavers’ standards. Honestly, I’m very content with my current lineup. Of course, if something new (old) and groovy comes along, I could be swayed..

Whether it’s just a few select pieces, or drawers with scores of razors, what’s your number?

Here’s my current count:

DE: 18
Injector: 2
GEM: 1
Cart: 1
AC: 0
Shavette: 0
Straight: 0

Two! Impressive. You’re probably saying something like, “I don’t need anything else.” Am I right? Btw, that’s a sweet photo, Mike. The Rx is one of the best looking shave tools I have ever seen!

Great photo and rotation.  Two top quality tools is really all you need.  You're a man who's defined what he likes best and stays with that.

I’ve been with only these two for the last few years and I’m still pretty happy. If Phil ever made an aggressive RX without the tabs - I’d be tempted. Other than that, occasionally I check to see if Rocnel ever returned to their SE designs (sadly, no). I’m quite satisfied with these - great shaves every time. I have a few more brushes than I need - perhaps someday I’ll pare down that collection.

I never counted them.
Seems I have 46 double edge, and 8 single edge razors.
Some doubles also, so probably 50 DE.


Here's the list.

For me, it's 20 razors. I heard 21 makes you legal, is that true? 

Wei Shi "futur"
Gillette: Travel Tech, Fathandle Tech, Old type, New flat bottom, SuperSpeed, Slim Adj
GEM: White handle flip top, Black handle push button, Micromatic
A/C: General aluminum, RR V3 SS, RR V2 aluminum, Enoch, Shavette
Rockwell 6C
RR: .84 OC SS, MJ90 aluminum head
Injector: Schick I type, Parker adj

Doing the inventory I realized that several of my old stand-bys have not been used in a while, as the next one will be the best one of them all seems to have been my motto for collecting razors.
To remedy that I will go thru the entire collection with one shave with a fresh blade per razor. DE blade will be Wizamet. A/C Feather Pro, GEM well GEM, and injector Schick vintage. CRSW Schapenmelk and a Simpson T3 Trafalgar synthetic fiber.

I like your style. It’s a good plan. Keep us posted as you progress through the rotation.
