Re: Razorine shavette type razor - uses an unbroken double edge blade

Between having so many other razors, the Razorine getting mixes reviews, and the Daune costing so much in the USA, I'm not planning to get either one.

Re: Heads for RazoRock SLOC (double open comb) / Yaqi Mellon razor

I haven't tried one yet. I tried to get one from Italian Barber (which is Razorock's selling outlet), but they keep running out. That's why I broke down and ordered from China, and figured I might as well save on shipping by buying a few and selling the surplus. They're supposed to be surprisingly u...

Heads for RazoRock SLOC (double open comb) / Yaqi Mellon razor

I just ordered a few chrome plated double open comb heads from Yaqi, and it might take a few weeks for them to arrive. I'll sell them for $10 each, including shipping.

Yaqi calls this "Mellon" because that's the name of the inventor of the original Grand Shave King razor.

Razorine shavette type razor - uses an unbroken double edge blade

I just stumbled on the Razorine. It shaves like a straight, but has a guard, and uses a whole double edge blade. It comes in chrome and raw brass. Some people gave it high marks, but others said that the blade exposure was unequal between the two sides, even after much fiddling. Then I found a simil...

Are you pressing the back half of the head against your face, like the video suggests?

Re: Personna X DE Blades

A bunch of different blades come in a broken-in-half version. Derby, for instance. Barbers buy them to use in shavettes.

Personna X DE Blades

Has anyone tried these? You can get them as regular blades and pre-broken in half. They're made in Israel.

R.A.D. Recap

I'm recounting the razors I bought for personal use since the summer after a long hiatus, not the ones intended for likely resale, which are either collector's items like the Schick Type D injector (which I did try and got a good shave), or cartridge razors. RazoRock double open comb "SLOC" (made by...

Re: Taking a break from really sharp blades

The problem comes from switching around and confuses the muscle memory. I agree with this for the most part, especially with a razor like the Muhle R41 (open comb). But some razors are pretty foolproof and give an excellent shave - for me, two examples are the later Schick injector razors and the R...

Re: Taking a break from really sharp blades

With multiple passes, try changing razors/blades. Maybe use the least irritating combination for the first pass, especially if you have more growth than usual, and don't necessarily put 100% of your face through a second pass. We're trying to optimize the tradeoff between irritation and thoroughness...

Re: Taking a break from really sharp blades

If I'm in a hurry to get out the door, but need to shave, I can use a somewhat more "forgiving" blade, or a milder razor, or some combination. (The Maggard slant head I got recently can play a part, too, or an adjustable razor.) Then I get a quicker, more foolproof shave, and to speed things up more...
