    Default How many different kinds of DE razors do you own?

    For my own sanity, I am curious to know how many different de razors you guys own. I now have about 13, and am starting to get some looks from the wife. I feel like I am on some sort of quest to find the perfect one. I keep buying new ones but seem to have trouble letting the older ones go. I just bought an IKON, and now am drooling of the Tradere. Where should I draw the line? I take my cue from you.

    So... How many different DE razors do you hold on to? I want to be clear, not the total number of razors. i.e... If you have 23 redtips and 6 fatboys, that would be 2 different types.


    Thanks

    Cool Survey question vs. thread title

    I own two Gillette Slim Adjustables, two Super Adjustables, two Techs, one Aristocrat, one Good Will, and one Super Speed Red Tip.

    Actual KINDS is six kinds, but I answered for a total of nine.

    I suspect that if people, such as myself, who said they have 10-20 went and actually counted every razor, they might find they have more than 20!

    I have over 20 but most are multiples of my favorites like Aristocrats and single rings and the gems.
    What's a little loss of blood in the big scheme of things?

    I've got a Gillette Flare Tip, Gillette Super Adjustable long handle, and a Merkur 25C open comb. I'm looking to trade the Merkur for a Super Adjustable short handle, though.

    Dagnabbit Somebody, now you've made me count. Sheesh.

    Well, it kind of depends on what you mean by "types"? The New Improved head was used on several different razors...are those types too? OK, here's the species count.

    1. Gillette Single Ring (102)
    2. Gillette ABC handled Pocket set (3-piece, 102 head)
    3. Gillette Old Type Ball-end Pocket Set 3-piece (102 head)
    4. Gillette Old Type Ball-end Pocket Set 3-piece (102A head)
    5. Gillette New Standard (New Improved head)
    6. Gillette Tuckaway (New Improved head)
    7. Gillette NEW long-comb
    8. Gillette NEW short-comb
    9. Gillette NEW British long-comb (different head design)
    10. Gillette Aristocrat open-comb TTO
    11. Gillette Senator open-comb TTO
    12. Gillette Tech (1940s head)
    13. Gillette Tech (later head)
    14. Gillette Travel Tech
    15. Gillette Milord TTO
    16. Gillette TTO, 1946?-47 Super Speed but with Ranger Tech head
    17. Gillette 1947 Super Speed TTO
    18. Gillette 1940s notch-bar Super Speed (1953)...subtly different head from the 1947
    19. Gillette Red-Tip TTO
    20. Gillette 195 Slim Adjustable
    21. Merkur 11C
    22. Merkur 215 OC Travel

    But it kinda depends on what you regard as different.

They include an Edwin Jagger DE89l, 3 Fat Boys, 1 Aristocrat Adjustable, 2 Slims, 2 Black Beauties, 2 Red Tips, 1 Blue Tip, several (maybe 4?) flair tips, several (maybe 3?) late 40s Superspeeds, several Techs, several open combs, an Ever Ready, a GEM, a few open combs (not sure what models but used one for the first time this morning). Can't think of anything else.

    A Pils, a Feather, a Fatip, a Parker, a Goodfella, a Weber and a Joris...
    Multiple Gillette (5), Merkur (9), Muhle (4) and Ikon (5)...

    I won't out loud how many I have (though I voted in the poll). I can say this with 100% certainty though, all I need is one more........

    I have five.

    The total count is ten since I have spares (backup, you know, just in case)

    The sixth one is in the mail on its way here. My first vintage, a flare tip Gillette.
    My wife is happy I am happy.

    Anyway, you should start asking where to draw the line after you get your Tradere. Till then... enjoy your shaves.

    Hey! Why diss the SE razors? Counting the 3 GEM I bought this week, I may now have more "types" of SE than DE.
