I decided to try out the Broman razor and my findings mirror what others have previously discovered… outrageously mild, but average, shave.
I picked up a used Broman because it was available. I paired it with Tabac cream and a Nacet blade on the first go. Like others before me… I discovered it was difficult to tell there was a blade in the razor. Incredibly mild and enjoyable shave.
It was easy to load the blade and the pivoting head teamed up with the plastic head cover to produce a...
I’ve recently acquired 2 English made Techs. While one has Gillette embossed on top of the head, it has no other markings. The other has nothing indicating Gillette. In fact it only states Made in England on the base plate, as well as having a letter on the right and a number on the left (on the triangle portion of the underside of the base plate). Also note how that’s backwards from the US which would have the Letter on the left and number on the right.
Does anyone know of a way I can...
I bought a Parker 29L Pink and Lavender for my wife and my daughter.
Both my wife and my daughter think this razor is perfect for their legs, armpits and bikini line.
They like the weight and that it has a good grip.
It's as mild as Feather Popular, but they think it's more efficient, maybe because it's heavier?
I had to test razor too and compare it to my Popular.
I loaded the razor with an Astra SP blade and started shaving.
The first impression is that it is mild, really mild, milder...
Having started my DE shaving adventures about three weeks ago, I got to the point where I was getting consistently clean, irritation free shaves, and felt bold enough to try something new and different.
My original setup consisted of Arko soap, Astra SP blades, and two Baili razors - BD176 3-piece and BD179 TTO. Both are very mild shavers, BD176 especially so, but both are perfectly capable of providing BBS quality shave even for a novice like myself.
So, I decided that I needed a higher...
Immaculate condition. Display box corners still sharp! Everything in original packaging, including extra razors. Elastic bands still where they sat almost 70 years ago! Not even a fingerprint on this piece, a must- see.
God's gift to the wet shaving community.
Astra Superior Platinum is one of the sharpest blade out there yet it's so smooth, it doesn't skip or tug.
Because it's so forgiving and compatible with a wide range of razors, this is probably the best beginner blade out there. Hands down.
Did I also tell you this is also one of the cheapest blades out there if bought in 100 piece carton?
Got this two piece razor from Amazon.in for a mere INR 899
Once I opened the box, I was shocked (and pleased) to see such a high quality product. The steel plating is totally perfect on the razor and the finish is superb. The grip has been knurled well, and it will be rare that this razor slips out of ones hands. This is a two-piece razor, which means the cutting head always remains fixed to the handle, and the top cap comes off. The assembly can be opened from a screw system at the bottom...
I started DE shaving around six weeks ago, and promised myself that if I was going to stick with it, I would treat myself to a stainless steel razor. One of the reasons I wanted to own a stainless steel razor, is they are very durable and wanted this to be the razor that would last a lifetime, and I think that due to the design and build that the Rockwell 6S will certainly do that.
On reading the reviews, and reading the excellent feedback and well liked posts over on Reddit and on the...
