My favorite is the one in from with the striped scaled. It's a Heljestrand Mk#32 and are very hard to find. Perhaps the best razor ever made.

All of these are Swedish razors. I have 1 German and 1 English razor as well, but the Swedish ones are nicer imo. Harder steel and the grind is great on every single one I've tried.

They are no longer made, so they are harder to find.

I used my father's Heljestrand MK 31. Very nice, easy shave.
