    RazoRock Hawk

    A Merkur Progress set at 3.5 with an Astra SP blade is my go-to. The weight of this razor seems ideal. A Gem G-bar was too light/mild. Do you think I will like the Hawk V2? The light weight has me hesitant. Thanks in advance...

    Supply....Whats the secret???

    Practice and experimentation with angles, etc. For me, it was much like learning to wet shave all over, but with a quicker learning curve... I received a Supply razor about 3 weeks ago. I have been a DE wet shaver exclusively for 6+ years, so thought the transition would be simple. The...

    My inability to Tech

    I can't get a decent shave with a Tech. My view: They are too mild and light for me, regardless of blade. I'm a Progress set to 3 kind of a guy...

    What did you learn from your last shave?

    Should I even attempt shaving with a double edged razor?

    I'll answer your question with a question. Do you want to wet shave? If you want to, you can (and should, in my opinion)...

    New Guy Checking in!

    My two cents: Don't give up during the learning curve, and you'll be glad you didn't. Enjoy the ride!

    What's your soap for today?

    Arko, for the first time in months. It is usually drying, so I used a pre-shave oil, which I rarely do. Great lather, great shave, and great post-shave feel. Pre-shave oil may enable this sensitive skinned wet shaver to explore more soap options than I thought possible...

    Proraso soap or cream

    I agree with the prior 3 comments. Performance: Same. The cream is quicker/easier, but the soap provides the satisfaction of loading the brush. The soap should last longer/be a little cheaper per shave, as it is more product and less water.

    Upgrade from my starter DE razor?

    I own a Rockwell 6S, Parker Variant, and Merkur Progress (Mergress, actually). You won't go wrong with any of them. The Progress was the first razor I was truly satisfied with after trying a 34C, 37C, Fatboy, and two other vintage Gillettes. The Variant and 6S came later. The beauty of an...

    Help me pick out and find my first DE...please

    I don't think you can go wrong with a Rockwell 6C or 6S. The Merkur Progress satisfied me for several years after being disappointed with several vintage and modern razors that "everyone" suggested. If you're patient, I think most people would be satisfied with one of these choices. However...
