Late 40s Super Speed
All of them give lovely shaves. Lately, I'm liking the Fat Boy.
Bull Mastiff, Long Comb
I use those two exclusively. So my third would be a guess on something I tried months ago. Maybe a 40's super speed or a Slim. If it comes in third, it really doesn't matter anyway.
My top three are:
Long Handle Super Adjustable ("Black Beauty")
Gem 1912 SE ("The Old Girl")
Schick Type G in cream color
The Timor-ous Beastie
Merkur HD 34C.
Muhle R41 (2010)
Joris w/lined barrel handle
Edwin Jagger lined Bulbous
Edwin Jagger Barley Chatsworth
1. Super Speed "Red Tip"
2. Fatboy, dialled at 2, 3, 4, 5 on WTG, XTG, ATG, ATG touch-ups, respectively.
3. Merkur HD (the common shorter handle version, 34C?)
Razors not making it to the top 3 include, e.g.
Late 40's Aristocrat (Have not shaved enough with this one yet)
Black-handle Superspeed (Red Tip outperforms this on every account)
40's Superspeed (Balance way off, weird head, difficult, irritates)
Tech (Way too mild)
SE Micromatic (Not yet tapped into, no opinion yet!)
1912 Gem Damaskeene
Schick I2 Hydro-magic

1. iKon 2nd gen bulldog handle
2. Muhle R41 2011
3. Merkur Mergress
Gillette Slim adjustable
These 3 razors only because they are the only three i own.............currently lol
Don't get mad........ Get even!
Merkur Vision 2000
So far none I own or have tried even make it into second or third place.
The Vision is laps ahead of anything else I have used, including straights (sorry guys... just saying.....)
1. Ever Ready Streamline
2. Gem Damaskeene
3. Gem 1912
little by little, we went insane
Ikon 2nd Generation Bulldog Open Comb
Merkur 37c Slant
Gillette Big Fellow
Current favourites in no particular order:
Gillette Aristocrat Junior (probably not a regular one: the head is turning so it is probably a tad more aggressive than other juniors)
1. EJ DE89. This razor gives me the best shave I've ever had and seems less picky about blades.
2. Rocket HD with the aluminum handle. One of my first DE razors and gives a great shave.
3. Hydro-magic. For those hurried mornings.
