I've stuck with my fusion and been practicing using a brush and soap as per yalls advice.
So far I've been loving my experimentation. I have a puck of VDH soap and a cheap VDH brush both from walgreens, and I can say I'm never going back to my old gillette goo.
Yall gave me some great advice to start me off and I'm hoping yall can give me some more advice moving over to a razor.
I originally planned on switching to a straight blade, but after further consideration (and some input from yall) I've decided to go for a DE Safety Razor. I've been looking around and I think I'm going to get a Merkur HD. It seems like a good starter razor.
Any thoughts or advice? Especially on where to purchase a razor?
