    First Shave with a Shavette

    I don't currently own a SR; i use DEs almost exclusively. I have wondered about a SR but stopping it has always put me off so i thought id try a Shavette to see if it bridged the gap but im no sold at the moment.

    My First Shave with an Open Comb

    Just as the title says, first time using an open comb DE razor. Felt very different to the closed comb's i've been using. I don't think i could use an open comb daily though obviously YMMV. Anyone use an open comb daily?

    A New Brush, a New View

    So, I never realised how much a brush can change your opinion of a product or, that you could become so attached to a particular brush. I've experienced it with razors but this is the first time i've experienced a brush i never want to loose.

    Review of the Polsilver Super Iridium

    It probably says that I’ll use them a few more times with different razors and creams and update with a catch-up video. Or That whilst they’re great blades, YMMV and my face may not suit them. It wouldn’t be the first time my face has suited something/ someone

    Future and the like

    Evening all, I wanted to ask the community, are there people who simply do not get on with the Merkur Futur or similar copies? I have used both a Merkur and a Ming Shi 2000s and the head shape seems to make it impossible on my face to get a good angle, especially on my neck and under my nose...

    Some Advice for someone quite new!

    Thanks for the replies. The Merkur 33C is a good shave for me i don't get irritation and i can easily get a good/great shave in 3 passes. I will go back and look at changing the 2000s settings. The 5 did give me squeaky smooth skin WTG after the first pass but i appreciate that it may also be...
