I started DE/SE shaving a couple of years ago but shortly after starting it was interupted by a heart attack and triple bypass. For the next 12 months I was on heavy dosage of blood thinners which meant I bled for 2 hours if I cut myself shaving. So in short I am still finding my feet and my question is this. Do you have/search for the forever razor? Have you found several which shave equally well and rotate for variation? My own findings thus far is that I prefare milder razors, Rocket HD, Flair Tip seem the same and Tech a bit milder. My Black Beauty 2-2-2 pass is also similar but better shave. My several 1912's are good but not as good as the DE's. my 1914 even shimmed in an absolute monster which I hate! My latest purchase the Ming Shi, Merkur Futur clone gives me the best shave of all on a 3-2-1 pass, but only by a small margin. All I am happy to shave with (Except that damn 1914) but none are head and shoulders above the rest. Have you found one razor that is your forever razor and the only one you really want to use? I am thinking of a Parker Variant next so would also be grateful for your thoughts on that model.
