Im about two Weeks into DE shaving this is my gear.
Razor 1960 Gillette Tech $16.00 shipped ebay.
Brush Soap mug and stand VDH luxury 29.00 Amazon
C.O. Bigelow gift.
Blades: Wilkins Walmart$1.80, personna sallys $2.80, family dollar $1.00
Aftershave Nivea I already used and Ice Blue $3.20 grocery store.
In the process of ordering a sample pack of blades from bullgooseshaving or Amazon still not decided. I have been looking them over and over but can not decide. Would buy personna and Wilkinson both gave me good shaves.
I must say that my experience so far has been great. I get good lather from both VDH luxury and the CO. I do love the cooling feeling of the CO. Im just hoping to stay away from the ADs I read so much of here.
