Well, I've finally decided to take the plunge. I have my nice (read: affordable) brush from Target, a cheap ceramic bowl for some lathering, and a sampler blade pack from west coast shaving on the way. Now it's time for the main event. I need me a razor!
My beard seems to be pretty light compared to others, so I'm looking for anything that'd fit. As my wallet is also pretty light, I want to stay below $20 so I can pick up some much-needed shaving cream as well before I fall headlong into complete RAS-induced bankruptcy. All the materials I've read through seem to indicate my best choices seem to revolve around a Super Speed (Blue-tip, maaaybe Black), thick-handled Tech, or even a Fat Boy or Slim if they fall low enough into my range. It doesn't have to be pristine, as I can clean and disinfect, but shouldn't have any permanent cosmetic or mechanical damage. I'm also open to other razor suggestions if anybody has any.
Thanks guys (& girls...?),
