Very good read, it puts certain things in perspective. One thing I am curious about (shavewise) is how much shaves an original wet shaver does on a blade. I guess quite a lot more than the typical 2 to 6 of the forum crowd.
I'm glad I've read that. A man of Bernard's ages is a great opportunity for us to internalize knowledge proven by years if not to say decades. His opinion is valuable at least because he's able to compare modern trends to the ones of the past. Such a comprehensive review is only available when some thoughtful person like Jim meets some elderly yet purely sane person like Bernard. So my thanks to both of them for such a fascinating mental journey to the erstwhile times while discussing topical themes.
