Lara, I have read pretty much all posts over the last two years at both ShaveMyFace.com and BadgerandBlade.com so what I am going to give you is a summary of the lower cost products that seem to be recommended most frequently but which are still very effective. Many of these products have worked so ...

Sal, You say, "Rooney Finest style 3 size 1". Is the size small, medium, or large? I am looking at the Classic Shaving web site for the size reference. Since you recommend this brush with the Truefitt and Hill Luxury Shave Soap, I am assuming that it is a more stiff brush without excessive bloom or ...

Randy, Thank you for the compliment. If you read the fourth and ninth paragraphs again, you will see that I already agree with you. My comments relative to experimenting were really focused at adjustments in how you use a given product rather than using a variety of products. As I recall from past p...

Gents, Thank you both for the kind comments. I appreciated the feedback. I am not sure why my little manifesto did not garner more comment but so be it. I wanted to give back to SMF the essence of what I had learned in over a year of double edge razor shaving and studying SMF posts. I have tried Cad...

What Works for Me

Have you acquired new wet shaving perspectives, preferences, or insights since you started? My perspective and technique have evolved considerably since I started shaving with a double edge (DE) razor in February 2006. I now perceive shaving as a more enjoyable experience rather than a chore. My bea...

I would only give up the luxury shaving soaps or creams. The Merkur Heavy Duty Classic Straight Bar Razor and Proraso Omega shave brush are here to stay and are easily the two most outstanding shaving product discoveries I have made from shave forum reading. I can get a really close, comfortable, an...

If you can learn to get a close, comfortable, and fun shave with Williams Mug Shaving Soap then you can pretty much lather anything. Try lathering Williams with a Proraso Omega boar hair shaving brush. This one doesn't cost you much to practice with either.

Chris, I have had a similar experience with mild facial skin burning on rare occasions using Taylor's Rose Shaving Cream caused by using too much cream after switching from Nancy Boy shave cream which requires more cream. The Nancy Boy shave cream never gave me this problem. Do you have any idea whi...

With practice, I have been amazed at how close and comfortable a shave I can get with Williams Mug Shaving Soap - no facial skin drying, abundant lather, and enough viscosity in the lather to protect my face from the blade edge without adding any other product. I get a great lather without much trou...

I have to agree with the Nancy Boy Signature Shave Cream and Aftershave Gel selection. This is the easiest shave cream for achieving a consistent shave and the combination is very enjoyable. Get some of the bath soaps too.

A Lesson About Rotations from a Random Act of Kindness

I gave an older friend of mine the last of my Nancy Boy Signature Shave Cream and Aftershave Gel along with the last of my Taylor of Old Bond Street Rose Shaving Cream.

Some Special Thanks After a Year of Double Edge Razor Shaves

After a little more than a year of double edge razor shaving since starting in February 2006, there are a few SMF members that readily come to my mind as having provided insights that greatly contributed to the close comfortable shaves I am currently enjoying.
