Gentlemen,After spending enough time going through the B & B shaving heaven, I started on a hunt for supplies.
I am from the city of Chennai, in South India, and though I have seen it being tagged a Wet shaver's haven, I couldn't not find the stuff you guys are all talking about so easily. I could get one or two and mostly like a sampler but not much.The large malls think of these items as 'outdated', and 'cheap' , What cheek ?!!
They show me the 5-blader Gillettes, and the Phillips electrics and suggest me to become upwardly mobile!
So, at the saloon, I strike a conversation with my barber, and ask him where he gets his Shavette.. and he points me to a place.
Today I had the opportunity to visit this place in the southern suburbs of Chennai. Man! it was a treasure house for wet shavers. Of course this is no premium stuff. But nevertheless I think a great starter pack. and everyday staple.
Here is my haul. It cost me all of 15 USD :)Cosmo Active - A fruit smelling shaving creamTaiwan - natural hair brush.(not sure which animal though)7 O clock Permasharp saloon pack of 50 x 2Wilkinson Saloon pack of 50Laser saloon pack of 50Lucas Alum - Oh I love this thing.Taiwan Shavette x 2 ( one is white and another in black )I guess I am pretty much set now and learn that proper shave.I am just beginning to skim on the surface of this forum.. Awesome information! Thank you all so much!Anyone travelling to Southern India, you guys know where to get these now.
