What’s Your Blade?

The one? That razor with the best grind for your beard and face, the perfect width and weight. The perfect edge and steel.

I went through about seven or eight different razors and have settled on a Ralf Aust 7/8 Spanish Point. I’ve had some nice razors. Never had a Fili but maybe one day. Anyways. This is the one that just works. So I am gonna grab a few more. Not a complete seven day set but three maybe four total to ensure that I never run out. Worst things in life are when great things get discontinued or bought out etc. you know how that goes.

Gold Dollar W59
At present, this is "the one" for me. All 22 of my SR's are a pleasure to shave with and shave perfectly for me but each type is different. The W59 is currently my most favoured SR because it requires a little more concentration when being used. I keep the toe pointy and sharp.

My most aesthetically pleasing SR is my Ralf Aust 6/8 American point dressed in blond horn scales. It shaves just as well as the W59 but doesn't require quite the same level of concentration.

PS. The W59 is also the best for shaving inside nostrils and ear canals 😊.

I have a lot, but my current go to razor, the one that stays out of the storage containers, is this French Hamon Fabricant from the 1860’s, in ivory.

It’s got a few marks and pitting, but it ticks all the boxes for the type of razor I like, and it shaves really well.
 
I really like my T.I. 6/8th half-hollow. My other 2 razors are 6/8th full hollows but I like how rigid the T.I. feels. I have a 7/8th pre-ordered with the thicker grind now too so we shall see if my opinion changes when I get my new razor. I'll shave with my Aust and GD once in a while but the T.I. is the one I keep grabbing and prefer by a long shot.

Yeah, Like a real Les Paul.
