Just started using a Merkur Futur and Proraso/shaving soap. My technique is getting better and the shave is pretty excellent.

Straight shaving can get really addictive. in fact, it has taken the place of clothing for me-for now at least.

in the last two months i've purchased 8 straight razors ( three cheapies to practice honing on). Plus probably six or so different creams.

A year ago, it was just a fusion and a tube of kiehls.

heh, I was just think about the razors this morning...going from memory here...

The main rotation:
7/8 Henkels Friodur (stainless, hollow ground)
15/16 Filarmonica (the last production run with the smiling blade, hollow ground)
6/8 quarter-hollow Le Grelot (Thiers-Issard regrind)
8/8 Wolstenholm wedge (ebay purchase I cleaned up - fantastic edge)
7/8 Wade & Butcher wedge (...SRP or B&B board)

The rest of the herd:

5/8 Wapinecas (3) - plan on rescaling each
5/8 Weyersberg quarter-hollow
5/8 Wade & Butcher quarter-hollow that I'm still putting an edge on (ebay purchase)
5/8 Le Grelot hollow ground
a few other rescale/rehone jobs that escape my recollection.

Seems I gravitate towards the heavier razors...

Usually a Merkur HD and any one of a number of shaving creams and soaps.

Yeah, Futur gives the best shave I've ever had. Never tried a slant though.

Taylors Avocado is excellent.

Taylors Avocado WAS excellent before they changed the formula a couple of years ago.

Same. I have not gotten into the high-end shaving game.

Currently, Cheap disposable razors with lathered bar soap. Works well.

It's still good. The Taylor formulation change wasn't as bad as Trumper's.
