Dovo 6/8 "Solingen Best Quality"
Geneva Razor Co. 5/8

I've been favoring the Genco recently, but tend to go back and forth. I've got a few in the mail that might get in as well, depending on whether they're in as good a condition as they appeared in the listing (W&B and Tally-Ho!).
 
I do love these kinds of threads too...

Here's a picture to help with my list....
