Thanks guys! It looks like we're leaning to a Vulfix. Oh no... Now that my dad's getting all this great stuff, my eyes are widening and I have to stop myself from spending the money on some new stuff for myself as well. I gotta say though, that lather looks amazing Sodapopjones. Very very very nice ...

The Dangers of DE Razors! (Slightly Graphic)

Hello! Wow. I'm an idiot. I just had one of the best shaves I've ever experienced (new blade, new soap, new aftershave... mmm...) I put all my equipment away and my finger grazes against the razor. I think nothing of it and continue washing up until I look down and notice my finger. A piece of skin ...

Amazing thank you!
I will be in touch with him.

Anyone have anything more local? I'm always scared of border taxes from overseas.

Thank you all so much for the help!

My Dad; The Classic Shaving Newbie - Help?

My father (going on 59) used to use a DE razor when he was younger. After years of being fed up with his Fusion and taking keen interest in my Merkurs and Trumpers (He bought himself some Coral Skinfood which he absolutely LOVES), he wants to rekindle his old shaving style. He has been borrowing my ...

Hi guys! I've been kind of out of the loop for the last little while. I stocked up on some great products and they've been keeping me going for the past year and a bit. Now I'm running low on blades and wanted to hear your recommendations on where I can get some authentic Israeli Personnas shipped /...

Sorry to ressurect a dead thread, but I just picked up a pack from Zellers not knowing what they are, and I'm scared to use em. The wax paper wrapping is sealed with a yellowish gunk that sticks to the blade and the blades don't look so well made. Should I take the plunge, or just chuck them? They w...

Yup I do this all the time. I want to leave the meal with the best taste in my mouth. I sometimes go to the lengths of starting the meal, eating dessert then finishing the meal if I decide the meal tastes better than dessert. Now I don't do the dessert thing OFTEN, but I do always do the best part o...

Whoa whoa easy there! Do NOT knock these blades because they're sold at Walmart. These HAPPEN to be my personal favorite blades, tied with Derbys. Of course everyone's different, but just because they're sold at Walmart means absolutely nothing. I love these blades. Try them out before you make any ...

Cool Str8-DE hybrid

Hey guys. So yesterday I was at my barber getting ready from prom, so I decided to go for a straight shave. The barber pulled out this razor that looked like a straight, but took DE blades. rather than stropping and honing, you just pop in a new one. What type of razor is that and how does it measur...

Who taught you to shave?

What's your story? I'm sure everyone has their own. When I was almost thirteen, my dad taught me how to shave before my Bar Mitzvah (Jewish ritual when a boy becomes a 'man' at 13). I didn't get the hang of it and my dad had to go on business trips frequently, so it was my brother that really taught...
