The Merkur razors are typically considered to be more aggressive razors than the Gillette equivalents. After trying out quite a few different razors when I first started shaving with a DE and I eventually trimmed down my stash to a Gillette Slim and a version of the Gillette Super Speed. Merkurs ju...

MerKur HD VS Gillette Slim Adjustable

I have only been shaving with a DE for a little over three weeks. For some reason I can get a BBS shave with no irritation when using my Gillette slim adjustable but cannot do the same with my Merkur HD. Is the learning curve for the Merkur HD steeper than it is for the Gillette slim adjustable or i...

WTB Kent BK4 Brush

Last week a member posted a Kent Bk4 brush for $50.00 shipped. I missed out on it by about 30 seconds and have been obsessing about it ever since. If anyone has a similar offer, I am all ears. :D

I use an Ultrasonic cleaner, but it's a much larger version than the one on ebay. You can do a Google search and find them all over the place with different wattages. Mine will hold four or five razors at a time and I use Barbicide or an Antibacterial Dishwashing liquid with hot water to clean my r...

Thanks for the input. If I can get a BK4 for $60.00 shipped, I'm all over it! I have heard nothing but good things about it but had heard virtually nothing about the BK2 or H4.

Kent BK2 or Kent H4

I was looking to pick up a good brush for soap and was considering the Kent BK2 or the Kent H4 (the BK4 is a little more than I want to shell out). Unfortunately, I did not see any reviews of either the Bk2 or H4. Can anyone on the forum share their experiences with either of these brushes. I am als...

Just acquired two Techs from Southpaw...a fat-handled Tech and a ball-handled Tech. Very smooth transaction and great looking razors.

My New Razor Stand

I have only been wet shaving for about three weeks but I have already come down with a severe case of Acquisition Disorder. Before plunging into wet shaving, I bought a starter kit that included a Merker HD, a Vulfix brush and a stand. Three weeks later I have four DE razors and that old stand is no...

I change blades after three shaves. I figure that since the blades are so cheap (compared to a cartridge), why press your luck.
