    Have we reached the zenith of shaving technology?

    I think straight razors are the peak of shaving technology. Such a sophisticated tool in terms of design and materials technology, yet elegant and simple at the same time. Just like a lightsabre :a45: (never thought I'd use that emoticon :lol:) .

    Best Witch Hazel?

    you could try generic witch hazel (with 14% alcohol) first, at 1/3 the price. i did that, using it as aftershave splash, and am yet to try anything else... :001_smile Natural and cheap. .
