    World’s Mildest (New) Razor?

    I'm glad it proved to be a winner for you. I had a feeling you'd like it. I started with the AL13 and quickly moved to the Ti22 for more heft. Awesome performing razors. It's the one I enjoy using most.

    Modern Razor for Vintage Shaver?

    There are lots of great modern razors out there. Some of the ones I use are Yates, Blackbird, EJ 3one6, Muhle Rocca, RR Lupo and my favorite the Henson Ti22 titanium. If you're looking for something that shaves great, has a unique design, and a different kind of face feel, check out Henson...

    Edwin jagger 3one6 vs Razorock lupo .72

    I have both and prefer the 3one6. The Lupo (I have the .72 version) is super smooth and shaves close, but it leaves behind a bit of irritation that I don't get from the 3one6. The 3one6 is smooth as well, but may lack just a little in this category compared to the Lupo. I get closer, more...

    Electric shaver for coarse grey beards.

    Braun is a good performing electric. I used one for years way back when. Just let him know it may take a few weeks of shaving to get the best results. Face/whiskers take time to adjust from razor to electric.

    Smoothest stainless steel razors?

    The Timeless. 68 is smooth and fairly efficient. I find my Yates M plate smooth and efficient as well. If you want to up the ante, check out the Henson Ti22 titanium razor. Smooth as can be and very efficient....my top razor at the moment.

    How many soaps/creams in rotation?

    I have about a dozen soaps and half a dozen creams. I use them all randomly according to my mood. I mostly gravitate towards my soaps.

    Slant Razor Advice

    I have to agree here as well. My slants don't perform any better then my normal DE razors. Maybe they do for some, but I actually get better shaves from my Henson, 3one6, Yates and Blackbird.....YMMV.

    Slant Razor Advice

    I have several slant razors.....X3, 37C, S1, FOCS, and Wunderbar. I get pretty good shaves from all of them, but the best results are obtained with the Wunderbar. It steps up the efficiency for me a bit over the others and is super smooth. For me it's an every 2 to 3 day shaver not a daily...

    Holy grail razor

    For me at the moment it would be my Henson Ti22 medium. Very impressive shaves with no irritation even when I'm a bit careless. I also find it fun to shave with since it's different than all my other razors. I'm loving this razor and really could be happy if it were my only one.

    Let's see your favorite shaving mug.

    Thank you for the insight. That would be the way I currently load and lather my soaps.....good deal.

    Gillette slim vs rex ambassador in comparison to karve razor

    Might want to give the Merkur Progress a look as well. Not too aggressive on the lower settings. I have a Slim but haven't used it in years so I can't comment on it. Never used the Rex. The Progress is a nice performer...smooth and comfortable (at least as a face shaver).

    Let's see your favorite shaving mug.

    Quick question. How do most of you use a shaving mug? Do you keep a soap puck in the bottom? If so, do you just lather off the puck then to your face? What do you do once you finish shaving? Do you leave the excess lathered soap on the puck or do you rinse it off? I am waiting to receive...

    Do you have backups?

    I have backups to all my favorite razors.....Henson Ti22, Blackbird, Yates, and soon 3one6. My mind always tells me I need a second just in case the unforeseen happens. As soon as I find my favorite brush, I'll probably duplicate it as well. Whatever I don't end up using or needing I'll pass...

    Repurposing stuff for razor storage

    Ha....I like it. Nice.

    The Desert Island

    I would want my Henson Ti22. Always a great shave and fun to use.

    Wilkinson Sword (Solingen Germany)

    I like the German Wilkies. They work well in the razors I use. I find them smooth and long lasting.

    3ONE6 Versus Game Changer .84

    I only have the 3one6 out of these two, but it's one of my best shavers. Always a very close, comfortable shave. I like razors with a large blade gap and neutral blade exposure as they seem to work best for me. The thinner handle took some getting use to, but now I like it.

    Last razor I'll ever purchase?

    I have the 72 Lupo. It punches well above its weight class. Nice razor overall.....one of my top performers.

    First shave with Edwin Jagger 3one6

    I have tried at least 6 different blades in my 3one6 and all have performed great. I'm glad it works well with my favorites.....it's a great razor. My Henson is the same. Haven't found a blade that doesn't work well for me. Can't say this about some of my other razors.

    My new Stirling Finest Badger Fan Knot brush ----- Wow !!

    I've been thinking about a new brush, so after reading this post I decided to get the Sterling fan knot brush. I've never had a fan style brush nor anything Sterling outside of their sandlewood soap. The brush appears very well made and performed admirably upon its first use. It's smaller than...
