I have only been using a DE razor for a little over a week.. I am very glad that I have made the switch.. :). I am using a Lord Premium Safety Razor Model LP1822L aka L6 with Derby blades.. I should have bought a sampler pack of blades but I purchased 100 Derby blades. (I will be buying a sampler pack of blades. I hope that I will prefer the Derby blades!) I am using a Tweezerman Badger Brush with Proraso Shaving Soap..
In addition, I ended up buying a Edwin Jagger Chrome Double Edge Safety Razor (De89lbl) due to an unusually compelling price.. I have been very happy with my Lord razor but could not resist a deal.
I have tried to keep all the variables the same as I am learning the basic techniques.. At what point should I start experimenting with different blades and my second razor?. Do different razors change your blade preference? I am also interested in any advice or suggestions as I am just beginning this journey.
