My favorite blades:

*CAN GET 100 BLADES FOR $12.00...WHERE YOU GET ABOUT 5 CARTRIDGES FOR THAT IF YOU'RE LUCKY...SUPERIOR SHAVES FOR PENNIES A SHAVE.

Crystal Double Edge Razor Blades (100 Blades) [RB-CRY-002] - $12.00 : West Coast Shaving, Double Edge Blade Sampler Packs





SHAVE SOAP:
$2 at pharmacies or Walmart for a good soap


or upgrade for about $4 to:






SHAVING CREAM MOOD INSTEAD OF SOAP?

$5 at Bath and Body Works...feels awesome. I use it for Travel. Same as Proraso vintage shave cream:





Finally, my go-to After Shave, wife loves it too. About $6 at any pharmacy. They make a Bay Rum that I like a lot too. It's a traditional barber shop favorite:

Up until a few years back I had several razors like that and use them with the shaving soap. Some how when we moved I never found them when unpacking. After reading this its reminded me to check those 3 to 4 boxes we never unpacked because your right they do give a better shave.

^ Somehow something always gets "lost" in a move especially when you use professional movers.

if you grow like you said you'll love it

I've used doubles a few times and it takes a bit, but it's really relaxing, love doing it before I go to bed.. you might need to do it in the morning though

Yeah, I even built a nice mahogany razor stand with a marble base for my shave bowl and added some gold leaf accents.


When I broke my arm, I had to shift "obsessions" as my wife calls them from weightlifting to something else. Wetshaving somehow happened.

It took me a few weeks to get the technique down where I could get a perfect shave without cuts, but it's amazing how superior old razors are to this new multi-blade garbage where they charge you a few bucks per cartridge. The best razors were made in the 50s and 60s. That black-handled adjustable one I posted is a 1970.

Bought a few razors off eBay, a few from Antique shops...they polish up amazingly with a Dremel and some MAAS Metal Polish. They look cool on my counter too.

Bonus - Talking the wife into letting me shave her legs.
Rock and roll. For that reason alone I'm going to buy one. So the double edge blade, how does that work? Is one edge sharper than the other?

Re: F....Paper Cuts

Sure, I bought mine at a Rite Aid pharmacy. I see them in every other pharmacy too: Walgreen's, CVS, etc.

They should be in the shaving section.

Glad I don't have to use it very often, it burns like hell.

Hey now, mine's a blood-spewing laceration.

Snapped a picture of it, will have to get it off the camera soon.

They're identical, there's just a sharp edge on each side. Convenient because you can shave one cheek, flip it over and shave the other before having to rinse it off.

There are single-edge blades too (for SE razors) but they're about obsolete now. They aren't as good anyways.

That's why you learn to do it right first.

She'll love the warm lather. If you do it right, you can shave more than her legs.

agreed, there's a little bit of creep factor involved with shaving someone else I think
