I have all my slims set at 3. I worked my way up slowly to where I found the best shave with the blades and creams that I use. Get used to the razor before you start dialing up the dial. Again this is the setting that works best for me. Once you find yours set it and forget it.

I remember my Drill Sergeant put me on two-a-day for a week. That was a very painful week. One morning I forgot to shave so I told a little white lie that afternoon when he inspected the ranks. I told him that my facial hair sometimes grows faster. Guess he heard that one before...

That looks like the slim adjustable, but in a Aristocrat. Are the dimensions similar?

Gents,

They are called Guayaberas. In regards to where to get them, I buy them through my brother in Puerto Rico.

I dip all my razors in baby oil for protection and lubrication purposes once a month. It sure makes the mechanism work very smooth.

Mike, I have noticed that lately I have had to add a little more water to get the lather just right. Maybe the water quality here in Austin has changed a little as a result of the drought. I also added a little glycerin to the mix to help with the lubrication process. The good news is the weather is...

I will only add this, our climate and weather here in Texas has a tendency, especially right now, to dry the skin. I would not wash my face before shaving, the oils in your face will he...
