With what razor blade?
Please assume that each razor is used with an "average blade". The rational is that this poll will result in a summary something along the lines of: "usually the average Razor X is more (or equally) aggressive than/to the average Razor Y for the average shaver" ... so we probably need to avoid a ranking that is dependent upon one specific blade.

Can't see the poll?
If you are using Tapatalk or a similarly incompatible browser/reader, and you do not see the interactive poll above (with checkboxes), please feel free to reply to this thread with a one line comment like, "My Vote: Razor X is more aggressive to me".

Don't vote twice!
Please do NOT vote in both ways (reply and interactive checkboxes) on the same poll. However, if you accidentally do vote in both ways, please reply with an additional comment to help remind me to remove your comment-reply vote from the final manual tally.

Reminder:
Even if you already agree with the existing results ... please vote to increase our confidence in the poll!

Why this poll?
This poll is part of a series of polls towards averaging out the subjective experiences of numerous shavers, through model-by-model comparison polls, into a list of Currently-Manufactured DE Razors Ranked According to User-Polled Aggressiveness on a Scale of 1 to 10.

For details and a complete list of open polls, please see our Wiki page on this project at:

Thank you for your time!


Cheers,

Final results are inconclusive. 2 for Parker standard bar and 0 for the Merkur slant as being the more aggressive. My best guess is that the Parker standard bar >? Merkur slant ... But with such a tiny sample size we can't say that with any confidence.


Thank you though to the 2 B&B members who did vote! I'm sorry that this specific poll did not yield a usable result....

Thank YOU shawnsel for conducting these polls. I've been keenly following them and they have been very useful. With more than 50,000 members on the site it would have been nice if more had voted. I'm saving up for a SS razor and these polls are helping me make a decision.
