    used Dorco ST-300 this morning

    I tried the Dorco ST-300 this morning with great trepidation.. All I can say is WOW. I have never had as close and comfortable shave. I has tried Red Persona's, Wilkinson Swords and Bics. Now I know what a BBS feels like :)

    Wow, tried a cream for first time

    I ordered and received a Truefit & Hill shaving cream sampler ( a few balms included). I had previously used soap pucks since I started about 6 weeks ago. All I can say is WOW. I tried the Sandalwood. The Lather was AMAZING. 3 passes, as close as I think I can get to a BBS, a DFS for sure. And...

    I took the plunge, but have a question

    I was very unhappy with my "goo" and multi blade shave. After doing a lot of reading, I shaved today with a Gillette "fatboy" set on 3 with a Wilkerson Blade. VERY NICE. I had tried Porter's Shaving Soap with no luck getting much lather while "practicing". My local pharmacy had some Williams...
