    DR Harris Arlington is amazing!

    Just got some Arlington soap, already had some of the cream, so I knew I loved the scent, but lathering up the soap is much nicer.

    What is the recidivist rate for new DE shavers? Straight shavers?

    I'm pretty sure that the population of B&B is going to significantly skew these results. I wouldn't think there are too many people who switched to DE, joined B&B, switched back to carts and still post here.

    Shaving every day?

    Beem shaving every day now for 2 months with DEs - before that, with cartridges, I was a MWF guy.

    Why are you interested in Shaving?

    Really? I don't make a habit of talking about shaving, but if someone else brings it up, I will provide my thoughts. My experience is that most people think it's kind of strange and are happy to leave me to my own devices. I couldn't imagine getting negative comments on the way I personally...

    Needed: Tutorial on using a scuttle

    Just got my DB 1.5 and haven't used any other brands, so I can't compare them for you. But man, do I love the DB. I don't think I would want any smaller than the 1.5 either, definitely not too big. I use it on the counter, I think it would be too heavy when filled with water to hold in your hand...

    Skin Food During a Shave?

    I also read that post, but seem to recall that the skin food was the only product used during pass, nothing else used as lather. I haven't tried the GFT skin food yet, but good to know that it worked well for you in this application.

    Curious about your $$$ invested in this hobby.

    I'm almost 2 months in now, started the beginning of March and I'm about $600 or so. Looking for a nice brush and want to try some soaps, as I've just been using creams so far. So I see this number going up shortly. Count me in for the 2013 Shave Purchase Sabbatical

    Gillette's Facebook site

    It definitely takes me longer now vs. canned goo and a cart, but I like it. I have 15-20 mins in the morning to pamper myself and my face. That's infinitely more valuable than the 10 extra minutes I saved before the switch.

    If I can't find a birth year SS am I never going to get a BBS?

    I've been casually looking for an F-3 since I started DE shaving - I'm hoping to come across one eventually - either a SS or an adjustable.
