Well this is an absolutely difficult question...a year ago I said the Gillette LC New. I have many, vintage and modern razors but right now? The Colonial General SS V1.
I'm not a collector a vintage razors, but I sure love seeing pictures of them, and really appreciate their beauty and historical significance. So thank you and everyone else that posts the photos for people to see, and also explaining their historical place in our hobby, and for being the caretakers of this history.Every month or every time I acquire a new razor my top five favourites change but the constants are the Leresche type 34 open short comb, more recently the Gillette Single Ring, and the Eclipse Red Ring. Here are my examples:

The Eclipse takes the prize for me - the best razor I have ever used and the finest adjustable by a considerable margin. It is fantastic.
