    I have a handful of favorites that I keep going back to -- Mike's Hungarian Lavender, Arko, C&E West Indian Lime, MWF, Classic Shaving Rose -- but I wouldn't enjoy being limited to just one.

    Sure, with the right technique, any half-decent razor will give you an acceptable shave. Around here, though, we don't settle for half-decent. We want perfection! Hence, RAD. :laugh:

    So, so true. Any sort of ruminating can draw blood. Doubly true if you're anxious or upset about something. :scared: Best take a deep breath and count to ten before that ATG pass. :laugh:

    A weeper or two now and then is nothing as far as I'm concerned. Nicks and cuts are another story. You really want to avoid them, and now that my technique is solid, I'm happy to say I usually do.
