    Serious question - I've been wet shaving with DE razors for a bit over a year. I've two razors - an Edwin Jagger 8911 and a Merkur 34C. It doesn't matter which one I use (with same blades, pre-shave oil, and soap), after about 6 weeks I can't get my problem spots clean shaven. If, however, I switch to the other razor I get very clean shaves for about the same amount of time and then have to switch again. I change blades every 4th or 5th save. So, why am I getting a good shave for 6 weeks and then it degrades until I switch to the other razor?

    I ended up doing that and it worked. Only just now finished off my last soap to start my new puck. Mama Bear's Awakenings. Menthol and Peppermint. Yeah. It's brisk. Of course with a name like that and those ingredients you'd expect it to be. I was actually surprised that it affected my cheeks but not my neck. Only used it once so far, but I like it, which is good, because that bar looks like it's going to last me a long time.
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"
