    Muhle Sea Buckthorn Creme - Where's the Fragrance?

    I was recently given a sample of Muhle Sea Buckthorn Aftershave lotion and I fell in love with the fragrance so I bought some as well as some of the Sea Buckthorn Shaving Creme in a tub. While the lotion I purchased has the fragrance I adore, the shaving cream is almost totally devoid of any...

    R41 OC Head Versus Mekur OC Head

    My go to razor is a Muhle R41 Open Comb pared with a Feather. The head on it looks almost identical to the head on my travel razor which is a Mekur Open Comb Travel Razor pared with a Feather, but... ...the Muhle seems to shave smoother/better whatever. It doesn't matter if I have them...

    Open Comb Dilemma

    I recently bought a Merkur Travel Razor with an open comb to use when... ...traveling. :wink: First of all, A+ for the Merkur Travel Razor. Yea, I realize that any razor in a case would do for travelling but the coolness factor of the little leather case and small size makes a Fat Boy in a...

    Travel Razor Choice Dilemma

    I have been doing the DE thing for about a year now and loving every minute of it. Fortunately I don't have AD so I pretty much stick to one of 3 razors for now and I am rapidly coming to the conclusion that Feathers are the only blade for me. The best shave I get is with my Slim Adjustable...

    New Angle on Corking

    I have been at the DE thing for several months now and it's just getting better. Along the way I tried blade corking but despite the stropping theory, I resigned myself to the reality that I was dulling a new blade to make it more like a day 2 blade. In any case, I abandoned my corking...

    Head Curvature

    First of all I'm a relative newbie with about 4 months of DE experience so I apologize if this has been covered or is something every DE shaver should already know. I recently discovered something about my meager shaver collection; two razors seem to shave me better and smoother than the...

    Pre-shave Exfoliant Success, Maybe

    I have rather coarse and curly hair so I have always had my share of ingrown hairs in places over the years. Unfortunately the best solution has always been a less close shave. Since I went to a DE and multiple passes versus my old one pass Sensor routine; I have found that unless I go for a...

    Rolls Razor

    My buddy gave me a Rolls Razor today complete in the box with all the instructions and other paperwork including instructions for the salesman selling the thing and a list of "Main Agents, Distributors and Stockists". It's a Viscount and pretty cool but VERY scary. Anybody have any...

    Razor Weight and it's Effect on Shaves

    This morning I gave my new Super Speed a whirl with a Crystal but had an absolute miserable shave with lots of pull. It was not cutting close with every stroke and the blade was skipping over my whiskers. My last three shaves were with my Fat Boy and a Feather although I've used Crystals with...

    Drag

    I have been a brush and soap user forever. I recently added creams to the mix but in the old days; (4 weeks ago) I was using a Senor Excel and knocking off a one pass shave in record time. Now that I am a DE convert and a newbie to boot; my first pass UN-RUSHED DE shave is taking a lot longer...

    What Will an Alum Block Do For Me??

    Four week newbie here with the DE thing. Man am I having fun flirting with death!! Feathers on a #9 setting on my Fat Boy and NO blood! In any case, my post routine consists of hot water, cold water, Witch Hazel, Bay Rum, and a post shave moisturizer like Nivea. I was thinking about adding an...

    IF I Was To Buy Another Razor...

    OK a quick summary... About three weeks into the DE thing and LOVIN' IT! I have a Fat Boy which I STARTED using on a #9 setting unbeknownst to me. After fixing my stuck adjustment I have discovered that two passes; WTG & a combination of ATG and XTG works fantastic for me with the first...

    It's Official; This Newbie is Hooked!!

    Without boring you with the all details; after about 3 weeks at this DE thing I am really digging it! I have been doing the brush & soap thing forever along with a cartridge Sensor Excel razor so the only new adventure has been the DE. First of all so far I have but one beard buster, a Fat...

    Another Newbie Question...

    What exactly is happening to the blade/razor on an adjustable when you dial it up? I looked and watched but can't figure it out? So far so good with the DE! I have doing it for about a week now although I have resorted back to my Sensor Excel on a few mornings when I needed a quick shave. I...

    I Didn't Kill Myself!!

    Today was my first DE shave and I didn't need a transfusion or 10 styptic pencils!! I have been a wet shaver all of my life but resigned to the drudgery of canned creams and hi-tech razors in my early days. For more than 20 years I have been a devoted soap & brush user. My usual routine was...
