I enjoy whatever combo I put together, I like the variety.
If I was chose a favorite combo it would include any RazoRock soap, Semogue Owner's Club boar.

There are infinite amount of combos one could come up with, I would fine it difficult to come up with one. It's like ink for my fountain pens there is infinite choices of ink/pen combos I enjoy the vast variety. Traditional wet shaving has that vast variety too. I want experience as much as I can.

Wow Dave! You're not asking too much! No way I can choose.

It has to be what I'm using on that day. There are just too many fantastic combos to choose from. But I know what AS I finish it off with.

Mmmm....

HMW brush with MdC.

Most straight razors feel the same to me. Differences in weight are the biggest difference. I suppose hollows sound different, but they don't really feel different to me.
