Top 3 Most Efficient and Smooth DE Razors ?

I shave every day and I do not care for aggressive razors as daily drivers.(once in a while a aggressive razor is nice.)
For nice DE daily drivers I use are:
Razorock Game changer .84 + KAI SS DE Blade- nice combination mid range
Razorock SLOC + Kai SS DE Blade- nice combination milder lower mid range
Gillette British Rocket 1950's + Gillette silver blue DE blade -milder lower mid range

Have some great shaves!
 
A Merkur open-comb (eg 15C et al) with a nacet is as smooth as butter.

Although it's not at all aggressive, open-combs are very efficient if you have to tackle long hair as well as short stubble. Provided you've fitted a sharp enough blade for your hair type, it will happily slice through anything you put in front of it - even a couple of week's growth.
I'm also a big fan of Merkur 15C, which is in my rotation of 7 razors. I like open combs and the 15C is a great, fairly mild one. Rarely nick myself. Not an expert, but the 15C looks a lot like my 1910 Gillette Old Style.
 
Best smoothness/efficiency ratio for me:

Wolfman WR2 1.15SB
Timeless Ti .95SB
RR GC84

I was tempted to list the Blackbird, but while it is extremely efficient, the significant blade feel keeps me from ranking it highly for smoothness (it also kept me from keeping it in the den).

You guys who have shaved with the Wolfman WR2 1.15 SB or 1.25 gap and above find them very efficient and smooth combinations ? More or less than others ?

Yes, very efficient while still smooth. I have the 1.45 gap with a solid handle. It's as easy to use as my charcoal goods copper lvl 2 or my brass Karve f plate. Fantastic razor. Lately I've been using a Ti by Carbon. Very smooth and still quite efficient. Beautiful razor.
