Definitely planning on doing this though I have to say the grip on the King C handle wasn't bad. Balance is off though, at least to me.If a King C Gillette and a Palmolive cream is on the way you are set up for now. The King C Gillette is a mild razor but the handle is a little slippery. You can exchange for the Bailly handle, most razor uses M5 threads, so they are interchangeable.
Gotta love that! I'll make a list and visit a gentlemen's shop. I'll see if I can bring the husband as a decoy, salespeople are a scary bunch.My favorites, right now, are Barrister and Mann and the Stirling with the sheep base. Plus, no pink tax, most products are cheaper too.
Aww, a few days? How is he doing? Errr, I'm not exactly holding it like a hammer, but also not exactly like a pencil. Somewhere in between. I should probably take a look at that, thanks!My younger brother started wet shaving a few days ago. I notice we all have bad habits from using cartridges. Most people grip the razor like a hammer instead a pencil and move the wrist to shave. That way you put a lot of pressure.
I agree with Olivia! And DE shaving is definitely more relaxing than cartridge shaving.Finally, wet shaving for me is relaxing. I don’t know if the ladies feel that way, probably not.
(Well, unless you're using a Derby Extra blade )
Sounds good! It's true though, I'm really glad I found this forum. No one is going to struggle with bloody accidents forever.Fortunately, I get good equipment right off the bat. I get a Rockwell 6C, Proraso soap and a Semogue boar brush. Later I experienced really bad products. If I started with a bad razor, I probably have quit.
It's absolutely possible. I did check on one issue because some other Ming Shi 2000s razors had this problem of significantly more blade reveal on one side which led to cuts. Mine seems perfectly even though. But the fake Futur, like the original one, is an aggressive razor. The angle of the blade isn't all that curved. Even on the lowest setting of .5 it looks more aggressive than the King C Gillette. The Futur is probably fantastic for a heavy beard, but not so great for beginners and/or leg shaving. I like it for armpits though and I don't cut myself there with the fake Futur. We'll see, I'm going to keep at it with the King C for the foreseeable future.Maybe your razor is misaligned. With a razor from a reputable brand and a good soap, maybe you will get some weepers due the bad technique, but a lot of cuts is not normal. There are good cheap razors (Lord for example), although I’ve seem a lot of cheap razors with poor blade support or misaligned. Maybe you have bought a defective one.
