    Feather AS-D2 and Popular

    Thread Starter: Fishdog72

    I bought both of these razors and had mixed results shaving with them. I heard that both were mild razors, and that was true with the AS-D2, but I felt a lot of irritation after using the Popular. I used the same routine and feather blade with both. I used Proraso green pre shave underneath my TOBS...

    The Muhle R41 Much Blood was shed. Oh yes, blood was shed.

    Thread Starter: dchalfy

    Greetings to all, I am looking for some advice regarding use of the Muhle R41 razor, or as I have dubbed it, Dr. Lecter. I have been wet shaving for around six months with a modicum of success (coarse beard, sensitive skin on neck), so I decided to get my hands on a Muhle R41 with an iKon...

    Astra SP

    Thread Starter: stevecat

    I just want to say that I have always been a huge fan of Feather blades and swore by them.. I shaved two days in a row with an Astra SP in two different open comb razors and got very close and smooth shaves both times. The Astras are certainly not as sharp as the Feathers but I must say that I am...

    Razorock Jaws.a bad idea

    Thread Starter: ncfyrfyter

    I wanted to try an open comb DE that was a little more aggressive than my EJ 89. I checked out the table in Shavewiki listing razors by aggression, and the Jaws looked like a good idea especially for $14.99! I ordered it from the Italian Barber and it arrived Saturday. I let a good two day growth...

    Hello from Sheffield

    Thread Starter: stellablade

    At the age of 41 I've finally decided to learn how to shave :lol:. Well, I've wet shaved for 15 years with cartridge blades but as we all know it's a different kettle of fish compared to DE shaving. I actually never had an issue with cartridge blades, especially Fusion. I get a great shave with no...

    My homemade 8/8 smiley

    Thread Starter: bluesman 7

    This thread was born in the "How Tall is Too Tall' thread and I'm moving it here as to not hijack the other thread. Background: I found my way to this site from a knife forum while looking for info on honing stones some time around August 2013. Got intrigued with the possibility of getting a...
