    Gillette Platinum - Where Have You Been?

    Got a pack of these in a mixed bundle, tried one in my R41. Amazing. Probably best DE shave yet. Smooth, sharp. I use Gillette yellows normally but I am a convert. Are these a well kept secret? I don't seem them being mentioned on here.

    Cold water splash to close the pores.

    The cold bit is almost the best bit after using Proraso green

    What shave stick did you use today?

    I got some Lea sticks recently in Spain. First shave was excellent. Got the cream too but yet to try that.

    How many blades are too many?

    To be fair I change the blade weekly. So 7 shaves. Feels a bit lame in comparison to the masters of economy on here.

    Vodka as Aftershave?

    I found kahlua very soothing

    What caused you to switch to wet shaving (DE, SE, straight)?

    Shaving was boring and the cartridges were expensive. Literally that. I was also sat home with a broken collarbone and internet access.

    Shaving frequency and irritation

    I also think it depends on the razor. My 34c is great for daily the R41 less so

    Difference between Parker SR1 and SRX?

    There is a bit of a price difference too

    Just a handful of sand and a bar of soap

    Shavette blade options

    Looking to get a Parker SRX but when looking at single blade options they seem to be very limited. I know you can snap a DE blade in half but if you want the longer blade it seems to be just derby, lord or Shark that I can find. Am I missing something?

    Thinking about going to see KISS

    Saw them in 99 and then in 2016 and Paul Stanley's voice had deteriorated significantly. I actually felt embarrassed for him. There are loads of videos showing his poor vocals online. There has been a lot said about them recently using a vocal track to support him. I loved kiss but hate what...

    Yet another Merkur 34C thread.

    After moving on to the R41 I definitely appreciate the 34C. I love them both but the smooth nature of the merkur is wonderful

    Mühle R41, you are fired.

    It's taken me a long time to get to grips with the R41. Before that I had only used a 34C but now I know how to work together with the razor I love it. I do think it's very blade dependent. Gillette Yellows or Astra work best for me.
