    I think it's best to allow freedom of speech. Could it be that forum owners don't want people to discuss secrets of shaving industry? I think it's a form of censorship. When there is censorship or when you are punished for talking about something, that's your new research topic.

    My thread was deleted without any notice.

    I recently created a thread about possible bad health effects of some shaving brushes. And, it was deleted without notice. Can anyone explain why it was deleted?

    Review of equinox shavette after using it for months.

    SRX is fat and doesn't expose a blade much. Thus, it creates friction between my skin and the fat body. The friction causes cuts and nicks. On the other hand, black widow shavette is relatively slim and exposes 1.5mm of a blade. It's easy to navigate without friction with black widow shavette...

    Review of equinox shavette after using it for months.

    Somehow, this is better built than a generic shavette from ebay that looks almost identical to this. I used it for months. For the first 2 weeks, I got slight nicks and razor burns. After 2 months, I could reliably get smooth shaves without burns and cuts. When I look at my smooth chin on a...

    Early review of Generic Shavette from ebay

    I can shave at low angles with the shavette without any modification to it. Black widow shavette exposes 1.5mm of razor blade. More exposure means lower angles.

    I guess I will need a small saw. How would you carry them when you travel or when you move to a new house? A travel case would be a challenge.

    Early review of Generic Shavette from ebay

    I tried it several times again. I learned how to handle it. Since the handle is not a square but a rectangle, I had to grip it vertically or horizontally in order to maximize stability. A straight razor's handle is a square which is easy to handle. It's possible to learn to handle it stably...

    I tried this shavette again. It's difficult to control. It's difficult to deliver appropriate amount of force due to lack of control.

    Early review of Generic Shavette from ebay

    I want to learn to shave with a shavette because a shavette can be convenient during a travel. I also want to seriously try a straight razor, but I haven't yet made time to prepare the tools necessary for straight razor maintenance. I wish someone was selling those tools at amazon.

    Have you used SR1 and SRX? I re-tried a Gold Dollar straight razor you gave to me. It was so much better than the 3-dollar shavette from ebay. It was easy to control. It was cutting through hairs very smoothly.

    Do you carry a shaving stick in a cylindrical shaving brush travel case?

    It seems that this shaving brush travel case can carry a shaving stick. Does anyone carry a shaving stick in a shaving brush travel case? By the way, you can also carry a shaving stick in a vinyl zipper bag.

    Do you mean something like Parker SRX?

    Early review of Generic Shavette from ebay

    This shavette costed less than 3 US dollars on ebay. It took more than a month for it to arrive my house. I used it for two days. On the first day, I got two cuts on my face. On the second day, I didn't get cuts, but I got small razor burns and resorted to my double-edge safety razor to finish...
