I sent my dad some soaps, creams, a brush, mug, and a Tech for Father's Day. He loves his Fusion cartridges, though, but maybe he'll try some of the latherables. He's used nothing but Gillette Foamy and carts in my lifetime.
Anyway, I'm visiting him in CT from FL, and today he said, "I think I have an old Gillette razor in my drawer. It has a black handle. And I've never used it. And it's still in the package."
