I shave each and every day, both my face and head. I always do three passes, the last being XTG. the only thing I will do is switch to an easier blade. Feathers will get me BBS but after a few days I do feel it. I will go to something that I know is easier on my face and head for a few days. I still...

Wendell-I will have to give that a go. What's driving me nuts thought is the fragrance, I have smelled it before and it triggers good feelings but I can't put my finger on it. I guess it will come to me or not, it dosen't really matter since I like the smell. Bryce-that's what I am hoping for,winter...

Well, the MWF did arrive. I was chomping at the bit to give it spin. I did give it a test run by building a lather with it. Gary, you were right, I just lathered as I normally would. The first thing I noticed was just how creamy it was. It also seems heavier/moister than the TOBS. The smell was ligh...

Chris- it's a long story but I actually learned to shave with a straight. I figure I will close the circle someday. Danny- Thank You! Wendell- I thought I was losing my mind as I couldn't figure out where you got the quote from. I went over this post multiple time and just kept missing it. I guess i...

I can hear the Darth Vader music in my head now (lol). I actually learned to shave with a straight. I got away from it when I was in the Marines. When I was going back to wet shaving,I debated going back to it, but as someone who shaves the head I thought that could get interesting real fast. At som...

Brian, the more reading (and learning) that I do here I see what I have been missing. I just ordered my MWF and am looking forward to getting into it. Next thing I need to do is try any other aftershave than Clubman. Lol. That is just one of the ruts that I have let myself get into. I find that I am...

Years ago I shaved my wife's grandfather who was bedridden. At first it was tough for both of us. For him, he wanted no parts of it as my predecessors hacked him something terrible. For me,I just didn't want to hurt him. We finally found that happy place, he trusted me not to hack him up and took my...

Thank you Brian, Art,Wendell and GA. Clive- currently I am using a Feather All Stainless, a Vulfix #40 super badger. For blades I am still trying to find what I really want. I have tried Feather, Wilkenson Sword and Merkur. Soap wise it's been Col Conk and TOBS Lavender. As you see I really haven't ...

New to the forum

Hello, I just want to introduce myself and say hi. Although I have been wet shaving with a D/E over ten years, I am now trying to get more out of it than just scraping the fuzz off while saving money. By reading here I hope to actually learn to enjoy the process. New soaps and aromas, tweaks to tech...
