    New Gillette DE - Found in Houston, TX

    By the way, I shaved with astra blades, not the provided blades. Didn’t want too many variables to start.

    New Gillette DE - Found in Houston, TX

    Just finished up my first shave. I went in skeptical, as I usually prefer stainless steel products and honestly collect Gillette out of nostalgia. I usually don’t love the shave I get out of my Gillette collection. My go-to is either my Rex ambassador or GC 84. HOWEVER - this bad boy is better...

    New Gillette DE - Found in Houston, TX

    FYI - was able to get one of these from my local Walgreens in Houston, TX. It was last one on the shelf so packaging was a bit damaged.

    Buying vintage Gillette razors

    Here’s something cool to think about... some of these razors have been on this earth longer than us and will continue to be on this earth longer than us if we give them the sort of care/maintenance they need... pretty cool to think about maybe 100 years from now a new generation seeking out the...

    High end razor recommendations

    Great question! I am a dairy shaver. Facial hair isn’t too course, more of a medium probably. I do three passes WTG, XTG, ATG with my GC. With other razors I tend to just do two passes WTG WTG due to my struggles with blade angle. I do like to blade buff!

    High end razor recommendations

    I had looked at these but was overwhelmed with the choices, so I really appreciate you making a specific recommendation! What’s the lead time on the wolfman looking like? I see a lot of people posting about being on the wait list.

    Looks really impressive! I’m really intrigued by the infinitely adjustable aspect!

    High end razor recommendations

    How easy it to find the blade angle on the Karve compared to your GC? I think that’s my biggest concern

    High end razor recommendations

    Looking to spoil myself by splurging in a higher end razor To give you an idea in my taste - I currently have a selection of vintage Gillette’s (red, flare, blue tips, slim, techs), Edwin Jagger DE89, and Razorock GC 68. My favorite by far is the game changer. It seems to me it has a bit more...

    Vote: How many passes is your typical shave?

    I think the important thing here is to just do whatever feels right on your skin. Don’t push your shave if you feel it not going well, it took me a long time to learn that. I’m doing 3 passes now that I got my hardware locked down, but when I was experimenting lots of times I stopped at 1-1.5
