Re: Screw bottom of a DE razor

Hi Sam - EBay doesn't allow outsiders to view your purchase, so I couldn't see what you got. I have had EJ razors with smooth handles and I never had a problem with losing my grip. I usually keep my hands dry through the shave, though I don't think it would be a problem unless your hands were soapy....

Re: electric shaver

Man, did you end up on the wrong forum! This place is dedicated to wet shaving with proper razors. All we're going to do here is to try to convince you to use a straight razor or a double edged safety razor and some decent shaving soap with a brush. Apart from that small matter - welcome! I got tha...

Re: Screw bottom of a DE razor

Sam, you could either buy another $20.00 razor, like the one you have, to last you for another couple of years, or you could get something more robust. I seriously doubt that a new $20.00 razor is repairable. If you liked an EJ in the past, I would recommend you get another one. I'm not sold on the ...

Re: electric shaver

Welcome, yak! I've used electrics, on and off, for a long time. Among them are two Brauns. I currently have a Series 7 that I bought at Costco and it is an outstanding tool. It shaves close (I have it on its closest setting) and it causes no irritation to my very sensitive skin. Mine doesn't have th...

Re: Dollar Shave Club and Manscaped

Welcome to SMF, CCoates23! This is a forum of wetshavers who typically use more traditional shaving tools. In the past, we have had a minority of members who used cartridge razors, but we may not have any active members who use the newer tools that you reference. Hopefully, someone here will have so...

Chris, I have a water softener and I, too, have had all kinds of soaps diminish in performance towards the end.

Re: My Purchase of the Decade

Hi Clive and Gary - I haven't purchased that much within the last decade, outside of expendables (soap and blades), so I think I would have to say it's the Rockwell razor. The Mergress was also a great purchase and a very effective razor, on its lowest setting. My big discovery in brushes, both badg...

Re: No hablamos ingles

John, you know "no hablamos ingés," "no hablo inglés" and "lo siento, no." You clearly know something of Spanish verb conjugation, so I suspect that you know some Spanish - at least enough to say "¿Chocolate mexicano?" ¿No? - Murray PS. Oh, all right!
