Let me hear what your Top 5 stainless steel DE razors are ?

I’m guessing Wolfman, Timeless, Razorock, REX and ATT - but I’m curious to see which ones will be your top picks.

Cheers, Claus

I’ve kept only three stainless steel razors; black oxide ASW Evolution, iKon B1OSS on an Rx handle, and a Game Changer .68 on a Weber Wave handle.

 Edit: I forgot about the Lupo DLC, so make that 4. Tbh, I’ve been thinking about unloading all of them but the Evolution. Other than the Evolution, no SS razor shaves my face any better than my prewar Tech.

Stainless DE only - Wolfman, ATT, Timeless.  I wouldna hit a dog in the behind with anything Razorook, didn't bond with the REX adjustable& sent it overseas at a considerable loss .. just went & looked & those 3 mentioned among the dozens flirted with are all that have survived.  I'd mention Karve, but mine is brass.

I've had, but sold on down the road the Feather AS, several RR 's, a Blackland or two, Webers, seems there was an Ikon oncet, a Franken Maggard something, and I'm forgetting another but then that's not on point

How did you feel the finish were on your RR stainless steel razors ?

The finish on the RRs was so-so, not up to the standard of the others.  Dimensions seemed "off" as well, using a vintage DE blade the RR was balky to fit.

I've got the Wolfman Guerrilla and the Rockwell 6S that are both stainless, so I can't come up with a list of 5.  But I like 'em both!

Aluminum Lupo is so perfect for me that I have virtually no interest in any of my other razors or any other razors I don't have... It's also why I don't participate in razor threads.

2. Weber DLC - Original long handle
3. Colonial Silversmith
4. Rockwell 6S
5. Feather AS-D2
