In particular, I find the pre-war fat handle tech with the triangular lather slots, is (for me) the ultimate sweet-spot razor! I use Gillette Silver Blues for a great, yet irritation-free shave every time! ...and mine is well-worn with plenty of brass peaking through the remaining original...
Can't agree more! For < $20, one can easily acquire an amazing vintage Gillette Tech (Pre-war or Post-war) in very respectable condition that will far outperform and outlast any current production $20 razor and even ones costing a whole lot more!

Answer: ALL of it! But I know that I am in a very slim minority in this line of thought! The Jazz musician in me says ya get one shot at any given moment in the music,... so make it effectively say what you are going for!!!
