I'm in the 10-12 range myself...
I'm somewhere over 200 DE razors now. I keep buying them at really awesome deals thinking "I've got one of these, so I can pass this one along to B&B" But when I get home, I discover that I had something merely similar to that and this new razor is radically different.
I feel I should add: Most of my razors are in pretty good shape, only a few are in truly top grade form while a few are aesthetically bad but functional. I've also shaved with every DE I own with the exception of six of eight that I just bought.
I feel it's a bit silly to own so many razors, but at the same time, I don't mind being a bit silly.

I have lost track on the numbers, but it is around 60-70 (DE's ).
I don't want to count them. I have a drawer full. All of them are in black velvet bags so that they do not bang around.

I have 6 but I'm thinking about selling some of them off as I've been exclusively using my Edwin Jagger. It just gives me the best shaves.
Two Mergresses (one regular, one XL), Weber, Red Tip (2), New (2), Slim, FB, R.41, Black Beauty Adjustable, Fat Tip. I recently sold duplicates of the R.41 and Fat Tip.

Very nice indeed, Turtle. This would be great for my "outer ring" of razors..the ones I keep in the bathroom, but aren't in the smaller orbit of razors that I'm currently "in to". They sit on a shelf, in a wall cabinet sort of just jumbled up together. Nice little bags for them would be great.

Now just one.
Had quite a few in the beginning but sold them all after trying a Futur.
I may pick in the future a Vision just to try it and a Gillette Red Tip for travel purposes.

Fascinating! According to the poll results so far, we hoarders/collectors are in the minority. I would have guessed there would be far more of us.

5... and I haven't shaved with a DE in over 7 months since I switched to the straight.
I've OWNED about 40. Every time I get one that I already own I compare them and keep the one in better condition. The rest I pass on to family and friends with a pack of blades. I've singlehandedly gotten dozens of guys into DE shaving.
I have about 20 and use a dozen of them regularly.
great thread. saw a lot of love for that EJ DE89. when i get ready to buy my second razor, I'm
planning on picking up that barley! preeeettty...

I own three and only really use one. Whenever I use one of the other two I think, "That was stupid. Why don't I just keep using my HD?"
