Greetings from Bulgaria

Post by Z-2 » Tue Aug 21, 2018 9:45 am

Hello all :)

Long time (years) lurker, I decided to introduce myself :wink:

I am from Bulgaria, and daily wet shaver from 10 years. My usual go-to kits are my beloved GEM 1912 / 50s Super Speed Z-1, Shea moisture brush/ Simpson special pure, and Barbon AS. Arko stick is widely available here, and the price is right, so, I use mostly this soap. The creams are all bulgarian, like Kapo, Top Ten.

About the blades : exclusively Polsilver and Gillette Platinum, which cost me about $5 /100 blades. Derby Extra is even cheaper, so, sometimes I use them too. For my SE razors I prefer GEM PTFE and Treet carbon.

Have a nice week everyone ! :wink:

Welcome to SMF, Z-2!

I like the Treet carbon blades, also, though I mainly shave with DE razors.

Thanks for reminding me of that 56 year old movie. Maybe I can find it on youtube or somewhere so I can watch it.
