Re: In Praise of the Ordinary Razor

Wholeheartedly agree with this post. Finally perfected my shaves when I started using the same razor for an extended amount of time, and that was with a Merkur HD. When I want to "change it up," I go to a Feather Popular. Have tried all kinds of razors, but when I started using one razor, one or two...

Re: New Gillette Razor - guess how many blades?

I tried the new Gillette razor. It gives off a ton of goop from the lubricating strips - too much for my liking, but I only used the razor 2x.

Re: proraso blue

I find that the blue proraso sometimes gets more "airy" when compared to the Green on the 2nd/3rd passes. When this happens, I add a little more cream as I think it performs better...never add extra water to the blue.

1. Merkur Slant HD 2. Merkur Open Comb HD When I get tired of one, I switch to the other. Sometimes I work in my Merkur Classic Straight Bar, but it usually does not last too long in the rotation. I got rid of my Slant and Merkur Classic and my new rotation is the Merkur Open Comb HD and the Weber ...

Well, I ended up not getting one for now, mainly because it is an adjustable and that is just one more thing I would have to figure out. I did end up buying a Weber razor which I am happy with so far. To justify this purchase I gave away my Merkur Classic. As an aside, I don't see much about the Web...
