    My beard is older than most of the posters on this board.

    The only razor blades I've used in decades are old style single sided blades for craft projects. Had a real time finding some recently until I realized they probably get used for paint scraping and there they were in the paint dept at home depot.
    Perish any man who suspects that these men either did or suffered anything unseemly.

    I've been shaving with a DE razor for a year and a half now. I like it WAY better than electric before. And its far cheaper than Mach3. Currently using a 1954 Gillette SuperSpeed, older than either of my parents (im 30...) Best blade so far is Personna Med Prep blades, and the Russian-made Gillette 7O'clock SharpEdge (yellow) are tied.

    I have a cheap "tweezerman" brush, Van Der Hagen soap ($1.50 at walmart) or Arko stick, an old spice mug for the soap, and a van der hagen lather bowl.

    I also use a schick injector from time to time, or whenever I go camping or stay somewhere else. The chinese made injector blades are AWESOME, I can get probably 8-10 good shaves from them.

    I shave every 2-3 days now. I need to shave every day but it dries my face out, I'm single and I could care less if I get scruffy

    I still keep my Mach3 in the back shelf for memory sake. My dad started me out on the mach3, he musta thought that it would be the shaver of the "future". He would've been suprised to see me using straight razors, injector and DE razors! I like to shave every other day, I like the feel of the shaver clearing stubble off my face.

    The home brew aftershave has been wonderful... it comes on with a stronger nose of Witch Hazel which fades quickly and then carries on through with the scent of citrus and has a lasting finish of tea tree oil.



    That, and it has a minor ability to stop little licks from bleeding.

    Correction, she will maintain her online biz only for now. Sue is a sweet lady, as are her two English Mastiffs. Whoa those are some big doggies!

    Picked up several soaps. My nose was spinning after sniffing probably 70 or more scents. (I didn't count). Funny/peculiar scents of note were Fresh Cut Grass, Creme Brulee, Pot Roast, and Bacon.

    BTW, I asked about Turkish Bazaar. She said she couldn't duplicate it if she wanted to cuz it was a custom blend she whipped up for a friend who was from Turkey. He loved it too.

    I have a fragrance oil at work called "Arabian Spice". It's nice too, but it's no Turkish Bazaar. I never could pinpoint every fragrance I was picking up with Turkish Bazaar, but I know it was fantastic! Glad to hear she'll still be doing some online business, anyway.

    This morning was my Gem shaver. This uses a single edged blade and gives a comfortable shave. Make sure to use the blades in the shaving section of the store, Gem brand is the best and not the blades in the hardware section.




    I love pho long time.

    I've never tried a single edge before.








    ordered some samples of wood today. Going to try carving out some rope pattern scales for the razor.

    Yes. I use a Merkur Futur and I can get in there. The bigger Merkur (I forget the name but it's $$$) seemed a bit big to me. Get a sampler pack of blades (west coast shaving sells them) when starting out. That will help you figure out what you want to buy in quantity.

    I ended up getting a nice Edwin Jagger over a year ago. It came with a variety of blades. Shaving under the nose hasn't been an issue. I've had a Van **** for a few years, and recently a full beard which has been very nice in the recent frigid weather.

    I went with the Edwin Jagger DE89. I liked the Feather blades so I ordered 50 of them thinking they'd last me a long while. Then I started growing a beard at the end of december and bought a beard trimmer. First time I've had a beard. I probably look a little bit older (much needed) and it saves me a ton of time in the morning (also needed).

    Someday. I have about a dozen from Mama Bear, et al. From what I've read, I suspect Mike's soaps lather better/thicker.

    I use a bumble bee in a clam shell.
    I use this http://www.gillette.com/en/us/Produc...wer-razor.aspx
    I freaking love it! I totally hated shaving every morning! Then I got this Gillette ProGlide System thing (powered by a single AAA battery) as a gift but didn't use it till about a month after I received it. Wish I would have had one from the day I started shaving! (which BTW was at the age of 14)

    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    Have you guys tried Mitchell's Wool Fat soap? I've been happy with the results. For pre-shave oil I use a home mix of castor oil + olive oil (you could sub in another thin oil for the olive for a different smell). You can then add a few drops of whatever essential oils you want for scent.

    I got a scuttle as a gift and have really been enjoying the hot lather, it's been a nice addition.
