    What got You started? (Van der hagen)

    A little over a year ago i was at a discount store called Ollie's. And stumbled across a micro one touch set for 10 bucks. It came with 12 blades and a stand. I've seen it advertise on tv for 19.95. I was curious so i picked it up. I happily sheved with this using barbersol for the first 3...

    Gillette Nacet blades

    I am currently working on a tuck of these. I have 4 shaves in with the first blade in the tuck. So far i find that the first two shaves are ruff. The plade smothes out after the second shave. I will finish the tuck before i render judgment on them. So far im leaning towards not liking them.

    Razors with wide/forgiving blade angle?

    As mentioned before try riding the cap. Combine this with short strokes. Between those strokes concentrate on keeping that angle. This worked wonders for me. Just slow down and what ever you do don't confuse short strokes with choppy ones.

    My kids are curious

    If you have a dollar tree near you sometimes they carry cheap DE handles. I bought all four of my kids one so they have their own razor with out the blade of course. I whip up some Williams for them because its cheap. They love shaving with me on Saturday mornings.

    Who here has broken a razor?

    I have used the micro one touch for over a year. I have not had any trouble with it. I just recently retired it in favor of vintage. It is a very good razor. Very mild.

    What's your soap for today?

    Tonight it will be Williams. I get good lather out of it but its the only soap that i have yet to master. I get thick and slick lather but have yet to make it cushioning.

    Arco who loves it, who hates it. Why?

    Arko produces a good lather. Slick and cushioning. It does lack post shave feel. Also it does have a minor dring effect on my skin. But for the price you won't find a better soap. I like it better than Williams. Williams is not bad eather.
