So, now I've moved to the shaving soap in a mug along with a boars hair brush... will obtain a nice badger hair ( silver tip ) when money allows. Tonight however I put in an order for a German made safety razor, you know, the old timey all stainless steel gizmo that take them blades that were always reported to be in trick or treat apples.
So far I really can tell a difference with the mix yer own lather with the soap in a mug as compared to the foam in a can... a big difference.
I'm hoping the new ( old ) safety razor lives up to all the reviews I've read. Currently I've been using a Schick cartridge 4 bladed job; but I know what will happen as it always does... they discontinue that model and come out with a new one... then you cant find blades; so youre forced to buy the new model.
Anyway, I'm going old school. The safety razor I've ordered costs about $ 35 and blades are something like 50 cents a piece.
My Dad was a electric shaver guy... product of the nuclear age. I did think of going full blown straight razor, but there's too many arteries under my skin to warrent that kind of self confidence.
What do you shavers use??
