Hello from CA

Post by desafetyrazor » Mon Jun 18, 2018 9:02 pm

Hello,
Very glad to find this forum. Been wet shaving for about four years now and it has been great both as a hobby and as a way to improve my (previous) electric razor burn.

Just wanted to say hello and looking forward to interacting with y'all

My latest gear is a Merkur 37C slant razor, Rapira Super Stainless blades, Bloc de Osma Alum block, Whipped Dog synthetic brush, Taylor of Old Bond Street cream (going through a sampler at the moment but I have been using Lemon & Lime for a while), Dickinson's Witch Hazel and Nivea Sensitive Post Shave Balm.

My shaves are much better and more pleasurable than before wet shaving, largely thanks to information I've gleaned on the web.

Is "CA" California or Canada?

I started with a One Blade butterfly, then went to an Edwin Jagger DE89, then Merkur HD38, then Merkur 37C and Phoenix bakelite slant. All have their merits but I found I liked two piece razors better than three (ie Merkur vs Edwin Jagger) and the 37C slant just gave me the smoothest shaves of all of them. I find the 37C coupled with a Personna lab blue or Rapira Super stainless gives the best results.
