Adjustable can be a tad expensive, but great for tuning the way the razor shaves. If you are looking for a new razor more people start with a Edwin Jagger 89L or Merkur HD than any other razor. Both are quality razors, the Jagger wins on overall finish most of the time. Cheap and built to last would be an old Gillette, something like a Super Speed you can pick up at a flea market for under $10. If you are really jonesing for an old Gillette Adjustable I may be letting a 1962 Slim go in a few weeks, it all depends if I buy the Slim Aristocrat I saw. Its the same razor shaves the same, just a little rarer and gold.
If you are playing life on easy, you are never going to win when it counts
