Six razors

with 2 comments

I got to thinking about what razors I would pick were I limited to a week’s worth. (I don’t shave on Sunday, as a rule.) Here are the six I came up with, in alphabetic order:

  1. Edwin Jagger Ivory-handled Chatsworth in gold
  2. Gillette Aristocrat (1940’s version)
  3. Gillette NEW
  4. Merkur Futur
  5. Merkur Slant Bar in gold
  6. Merkur Vision 2000

Honorable mentions:

  • Gillette English Aristocrat with open comb
  • Gillette Fat Boy
  • Merkur Progress in gold

That is, if I were to expand the collection, those would be the first added.

  1. “Here are the six I came up with, in alphabetic order”


    And what is your order of preference ?

    Thank you,

  2. Extremely difficult to answer, since the razor I use is a function of the morning direction. I went with alphabetic because I couldn’t really rank them in order of preference.

    Having said that, I’ve always had a love of the Gillette NEW.
