Only missed 3 days since 12/1. :)
David, I think you could shave daily with a razor blade duct taped to a popsicle stick. :ouch1:
 
I have shaved every day for as long as I can remember - even going back to my college days in the early 1970's. For many years I only used one razor, first a Gillette Black Beauty, (then a brief interlude with cartridge razors) then a Merkur Progress and finally an Edwin Jagger DE89. Now I have 7 razors, with two more on the way, and pick one at random on any given day.
  • EJ DE89
  • Muhle Rocca
  • ED 3ONE6
  • Yaqi Double Open Comb Slant
  • Fatip Open Comb
  • Classic Shaving Enoch (AC single edge)
  • Gem MMOC (Gem single edge)
 
I too am a daily shaver. So my criteria for any razor I own: be able to use it daily for as long as desired.

Weekdays. Rex Ambassador—today was 211th with it. Somehow it never seems to grows old.

Weekends. Vintage Gillettes are a lovely change of pace: usually Fatboy or 3-piece RFB, but the British Aristocrats (Gen 0, 1 & 4) come out from time to time.

Travel. Timeless Ti 0.95 OC. It’s light, rugged, and easily replaceable should misfortune arise.

Happy shaves!
 
RazoRock BBS Stainless Steel with 7 O'clock Black and Parker Variant Adjustable (setting #3, 4, 5 step up method) with Supermax Platinum Plus / Wilkinson Sword (India).
This can be repeated throughout the year, no problem.

I'm trying out the blade sample pack out of interest about the variety of blades available, but, any other blades that I've tried fell short of the above combination.

My shaving frequency fluctuates. Sometimes I slip into every two or three days, and at other times I am shaving daily, or almost daily. The primary razor remains the same throughout, an Edwin Jagger DE3D14.

The blades I use will typically be one of the following, but there are a few other strays in the box too.

Wilkinson Sword Classic
Astra SP
Gillette SharpEdge
Feather
Derby Premium
Derby Extra
SuperMax Blue Diamond Titanium
SuperMax Super Stainless
Personna Platinum

I will switch to a different razor occasionally, but not often, and not for long.
 
Gillette Slim on 3 or so
Gillette Fatboy on 3 or so
Wilkinson Sword Sticky (underated mild razor)

My only three razors for a long time now.

All with a sharp blade like Kai or Feather.

I am also a fan of the mild razor with sharp blade for everyday shaves. I also stick to a two pass shave at most. Fewer passes, less irritation.
