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...
