    Fake personna blue/lab blades? or not?

    I received a box of personna blue/lab blades from ebay. I know they have recently changed the packaging, so I wasn't surprised by that, but the inside was a little skeptical. Looking at photos other people posted, the "personna , super" lettering are at least somewhat legible, or on some blade...

    WTT/WTB your bluebird DE blades

    I have recently tried bluebird and fell in love with it. For me, it feels very very close to feather blades, maybe a little better with different feel. I would like to get more bluebird while they are still in circulation (although they stopped producing them). If you have bluebird in any...

    Shelf life of non-artisan, mass-produced shaving creams?

    So, here's the deal. I have been introduced to nivea sensitive shaving cream in a tube a while ago. I had been using cella before, and I fell in love again with this thing when I tried it for the first time. Couldn't find this thing anywhere locally, and even online, except on amazon, but the...

    any place that still sells bluebird blades?

    I tried bluebird blades that came a part of a sampler pack and I liked it a lot. I am reading that they've been discontinued recently. Is there anyway to get them in 100~200 quantities still? Seems like only people selling them are selling them as sampler packs only. If anyone on this forum...

    Voskhod - smooth as butter? or not?

    After rotating between highly rated, mostly very sharp blades (7 oclock black, feather, nacet, rubie) recently, I decided to pop in a brand new voskhod for the first time. I just got curious. going wtg down my cheek/sideburn, I felt as if it wasn't cutting much, so I did a couple of more...

    Cleanly shaven or hairless?

    Seems like all the DE-converts enjoy shaving experience (even calling it a zen-like ritual), including myself. So if you had a choice, would you prefer to be cleanly shaven everyday at the cost of waking up 30 minutes earlier than usual everyday, or would you prefer to be almost or...

    GSB is a keeper.

    Ever since I tried feather, I was hooked on it and I didn't think any other blade would come close to it, but seems like GSB is pretty close to it. I couldn't really tell much difference from the feather's sharpness. When I tried polsilver, I felt that it wasn't as sharp as feather, but when I...

    Does facial hair grow faster while asleep/ at night?

    can anyone beat $24 for 100 feather blades?

    I just ordered 100 blades from Thailand on ebay, the seller seems reputable with good feedback. Is there any place that sells feather blades for cheaper? even at larger quantity is fine for me if the price is better. $24 seems pretty good for feather blades, as when I searched for past going...

    What accounts for the difference in straight vs DE shaves.

    It seems like when I watch barbershop shaving videos, a lot of barbers are using straights and they seem to get much better results even with 1 passes, or 1 passes with touchups. Why is there so much difference between DE safety razor and straights/shavettes? For straights/shavettes, do they...

    Wet shave, then dry shave with electric razor.

    So i usually shave the night before work mostly because i have to wake up way too early to be doing 2-3 pass shaves. By the time i wake up, even after achieving dfs or rarely bbs, i would still feel some roughness especially on my chin and jaw line, which is where i have the hardest time...

    Okay, people have been saying aqua velva smells so good they get complimented all the time, but when I went to walmart to try it out, jesus, it was very strong and very perfumey that I couldn't imagine wearing it for even 1 second. When I tried adidas dynamic pulse, which was about $6 or so, I...

    When should you try the sharpest blade, the FEATHER?

    I am reading good things and bad things about feather. But I only started DE shaving about a month ago and I barely have my technique down yet. Is it wise to keep using the mild ones and work my way up slowly to sharper ones? Anyone tried using feather or equivalent when they just started DE...
