I set it to 2.5 or 3, whiz it around my face and I am left with a BBS shave with no irritation.
I have 21, but three are up for sale on eBay. I have seven that are my regulars, which means I am keeping the 14 others (soon to be 11) for reasons other than how they shave. Some I keep for their historical value (vintage Gillettes), others because of their unusual designs and others simply because I like their looks.

I have one. I've been toying with trying out an R41 Grande, but meh, I probably won't.
I have only 3, a merkur Futur, a Gillette Sheraton and a Tech ball end.
Looking for a Bostonian, It will be mine one day...
20-50 for me.
No matter how hard that I try to reduce the amount of razors that I own, it seem every month I always have around 18. I will buy some, and PIF some, buy some, and sell some, buy some more and take them apart to use for parts.
It is madness. I am just going to stop looking at razors on the bay and etsy, because every time I say that I am done and will not be buying any more, I find one that I must buy

Just over 30 I think. Trying to sell some...

I'm impressed that I didn't hit double digits. Good thing you didn't include other types of razors.
Please don't tempt me to buy anymore.
I've been tracking mine in a spreadsheet, but went through a period where I was getting them so fast I stopped updating it (and haven't since a few months ago). I need to get back and update, so I have a clue. But definitely 100+...probably over 150 at this point.

I'm up to 7, but there are couple more I'm keeping an eye out for.
Gillette Old Type Ball End Handle from my grandfather
Gillette Flair Tip Super Speed from my grandfather
Gillette Knack from my father-in-law
Birth-year Gillette Black Handle Super Speed
Gillette Fat Boy
Gillette Travel Tech (and a Tradere handle)
Okay I admit it, I have two but then I got back on the wagon. There really isn't any reason to have more than one IMHO unless you truly are a collector and then if you are I would seek out vintage razors, not new ones. Just my 2-cents.
***Merkur Futur satin finish / Deluxe Vintage Butterfly Safety Razor / Merkur 34C***
i have gone through at least 100, but am down to 25. However, i am collecting some for my son when he is ready to shave in five or six years. They will make great presents. Hee hee.
Laughter, love and shaving!
I have one, and one on the way to my house, always looking for another.
Enough but still want a few more crown jewels..
