    Re: Lets talk about shaving

    I got a couple feathers in a sample pack once. Had good experiences with them. Need to get some more, but they`re pricy.

    True, but they`re expensive compared to other DE blades, and I have about 400 on hand already. Though I haven`t been getting good shaves lately, so I`m considering getting them.

    Depends on use, I shave 3 times a week and get about 3 uses out of them so one a week. 52 blades a year, that`s about 17$ a year, cartridges were easily over 50+ a year.

    Re: Lets talk about shaving

    I shave 5x`s a week. I can get 5 shaves from a personna, they`ve just been very rough shaves lately. And the feathers are twice he price of personna, and 3x`s as much as Astra`s which tend to do ok for me- not the closest shave but generally pretty smooth.

    I want to try Astra`s and Merkurs, I`ve heard good things about both.

    Re: Lets talk about shaving

    Personna is my go to blade, I buy the Israeli ones. There are others I`ll use, I have sample packs of almost every blade made. The Personna`s just work for me at a reasonable price. I like Feathers but only get 2 shaves out of them. Shark or Wilkinson will do.

    Re: Lets talk about shaving

    Are you looking at for a first timers razor/handle (I don`t mean junk) or perhaps a Heirloom Quality Piece? I`d make different recommendations depending upon your desire.

    Re: Lets talk about shaving

    I of course started with the Merkur 34c but there is nothing cooler than a vintage Gillette in your birth year. I had picked up a Gillette Slim Adjustable from 1964 and I love the way it shaves. I didn`t get into DE shaving to save money, I did it to get a less irritable more comfortable less blood letting shave and I succeeded. I can`t remember the last time I had a weeper but do get a touch of irritation now and then but that is a result of trying for the baby butt smooth shave and over do it. I also went as far as selling that Slim to my Friend when I picked up a re-plated in gold Slim Adjustable in my birth year. If you need to know what they cost check out Hibco Shave shoppe. Delta Echo does some pretty cool razor plating. Razor Emporium I think sells re-plated razors also. Most of these shops do re-plating of your razor but also buy, re-plate and sell.

    If you are looking at vintage razors a good start is a Gillette Tech 3-piece in just about any year and they can be had for less than $20. Check out the bay. Badger and Blade just has an auction to support breast cancer and I just picked up a 1959 Gillette 3 piece Tech part of a starter shave set and by looking at it I can`t believe how nice it looks considering it is 57 years old. Looks like it just come from the factory.

    I`m looking as a first timer to see if I like. I`m looking at a merkur 34c handle and a variety sample pack of blades

    I don`t want heirloom quality if I don`t like

    Re: Lets talk about shaving

    Classic Shaving had a sale the other day, with this bad boy marked down to 129. Wasn`t even in the market but couldn`t pass up a smokin hot deal on a very nice razor. Gotta get my Hoshi Tombo sent in to get sharpened.

    I looked at those in their ad. Hart straight blades are renowned razors, first rate in every respect. Very nice.
