RE: Top 5 Safety Razors
Weber DLC
iKon SB (2013)
Gillette Slim
Muhle R41
Gillette flare-tip SuperSpeed

Not necessarily in that order, but that's the order they came to mind. There might be a bunch of ties in there. Or one big one.

I want to try a Cobra Classic. Or hope someone comes out with a new razor that holds the same SE blades even better.

And at some point it looks like I'll need to try that iKon OC baseplate, (judging from the above lists).

There are plenty of others I would like to try! (And I think I got into this hobby because of wanting to use straight razors. I got side-tracked).

Are you on the Cobra Classic trial list? One of the members here has organized a Cobra Classic road trip for those who want to try it out before they invest money to buy one. You should put yourself on the list if you haven't already. Once you do, I'm sure it'll make your top 5.

Sv: Top 5 Safety Razors
In no particular order.

Schick Injector G1
Schick Injector I2 Hydro-magic
Merkur 37C Slant
Mühle R41
Merkur 1904 Open Comb

List is subject to change since I ordered myself a Cobra Classic. But who knows it might be the worst thing dragged across my face.
