I shave a bit old school with a safety razor. It depends on the hardness of water to the type of soap or cream that works best. But shave right out of a hot shower and don’t dry your face. Work the shave lubricant into the skin for at least 1 minute before you start to shave.

Use a $30 Remington electric for everyday knocking off of the whiskers; shave once or twice a week with a generic twin-blade w/ teflon strip, and Barbasol shave cream, because the electric doesn't really shave that close.

Of course, I have a goatee/mustache/"soul patch" combo, that doesn't require much shaving, though regular trimming is required.

Male pogonotrophy (the growing of facial hair; i.e, beardedness) is often culturally associated with wisdom and virility.
I have numerous bottles of cologne, but only wear it when I'm trying to get laid I have a date...

Razor handle - Merkur HD Classic
Razors - Derby Extra
Brush - Rooney silver-hair badger brush
Pre-shave scrub - CO Bigelow
Pre-shave Oil - Truefitt & Hill
Shave Cream - CO Bigelow shave cream (a.k.a. re-branded Proraso). Other more expensive creams are great, but hard to justify the cost difference.
After-shave - Pinaud Clubman if going the cheap route, Musgo Real or Royall Lyme

The badgerandblade forum is like crack.

Thanks, I bookmarked it, looks interesting and entertaining. There was a newspaper columnist here years ago who titled some of his essays, "thoughts while shaving."

Don't worry....soon enough you'll have a cabinet full of 12 different shave creams, 6 brushes, 4 razors, 9 aftershaves, and 3 pre-shave oils.

No problem, I acquired a large storage closet, or will have one as soon as I clear it out and disinfect it.

I had to give up those shave sites and having to try all that junk for my new year’s resolution for the one that’s coming up (I started it when we moved into an apartment). When I moved I filled a Rubbermaid 20 gallon tote with shave stuff.

The only thing I’m having problems using is some of the shaving gels and soaps because of the water hardness. I mix and match the blades and handles to get the right shave.

At w*rk we line up like hogs at the troth shaving right before we get a big client in. I walk up to the sink do a one pass no nick slap on some after shave. I just smile when I see my co workers sitting there with nicks after using there fancy 4 blade stuff.



You could also impress your wife with how smooth your face can be…
