    What is your daily driver you reach for most mornings?

    My daily driver is the Colonial Razors "The General" Aluminium Head SE with iKon Bulldog handle because I can't stop loving this razor so much.

    It has been the Merkur 34C for few months but the last week I switched to the Progress. I have 6 razors but don't like a rotation. Only item that changes is the blade variety.

    Gillette Fatboy Mon-Fri for me.

    Use something different at the weekend.

  5. Since I started DE shaving it has been the Merkur 34c, however I am now using the Fatipe Grande and am really enjoying it.

    It's the 37c. I reckon I have been through about 12-15 razors over the last 12mths, and I am at a point where I am finding my usage narrowing rather than expanding as it has been.

    I get such a good shave from the 37c. Nothing has the same combination of closeness, smoothness and ease of use.

    I am also narrowing the collection of soaps. I have basically ditched all my creams, and am finding my focus now on OSP (I would like to try more of these), P&B (I have Albion, and would like to try more), plus a handful of others including Tabac and, dare I say it, Palmolive Stick occasionally.

    But yeah, the daily driver is firmly the 37c. I am starting to know what I like.

    Ive been narrowing down for ages now. Im down to one 1951 gillette super speed razor and 4 soaps. Sold off so much stuff Ive been on the search to find a one nice premium razor to be my daily. Currently looking to either get the ATT or blackland.

    Having just said I am narrowing down, I read another post just now that makes me want to try a 1912 SE? Ah well, swings and roundabouts!

    Good choice.
    Until recently I would have said my British made Ever-Ready 1912 with a modern stainless steel handle is my daily driver.
    Now I have an Eversharp Fashion Razor (aka Schick H1) and can't stop using it...

  12. I rotate all my razors so i don't necessary have a "Daily Driver", due to my shaving pattern which is sat,sun,tues,thurs...At the moment however,i'm giving my parker DE collection lots of attention..

  13. Don't have one daily driver as I have a pretty big rotation of roughly 14 razors!! But as I am travelling for work ATM and on holiday next week I am using an ATT R1 with Atlas handle. Solid razor.

  18. I don't use the same razor every day, infact I use a different razor every day but if push came to shove I could use my 2013 R41 as a daily driver, a great close trouble free shave every time.

    Same thinking, I'd use my Bakelite Shake Sharp but it's just more fun using different razors every day.

    Merkur Futur is my go-to. I use some of my others ever so often but if I am honest, I would not miss them if they were not there. Please do not tell SWMBO that!
