Re: Simpler still

Murray, when I first tried it several days ago, I did remind myself of what you have been saying. Sam, I have been a bit concerned about how I'm going to use shaving cream also. It's naturally thicker right out of the tube/tub. Maybe I can rub it on the face and then splash water on it, and use the ...

Re: Dopp Kit/Toiletry Bag

L.L. Bean. Here's the one I have. It was a gift (with my initials embroidered on it) from my son several years ago. I've used it for traveling many times. It's got tons of convenient storage bins. I love it. https://www.llbean.com/llb/shop/73889?page=personal-organizer-toiletry-bag-small&bc=&feat=to...

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

I am Italian but living in the UK. . . . I know and use a Daune. Daune razors are quite common in Italy where are used by many barbers. You can buy one for under 8 euros or 6.5GBP there. It is mainly made of light weight plastic with only brass rivets holding the handle together and a metal screw t...

Simpler still

Now it seems I'm experiencing a possibly temporary reduced enthusiasm for a thick santa claus beard of lather; accompanied by a life-long but seldom-exercised practice of using a twin blade disposable razor.

Both of them...

Thanks for the link of the video and the reviews. There are a wide range of favorable and unfavorable reviews to read. I'll be watching to see If any of the SMF members are buying and using these razors, and their results.
