Today, my wife had her first DE shave--and she loved it!
She had been a bit afraid, but our 19-year-old son (another recent convert) and I continued to extoll the virtues of the DE way of life. She finally went for it--12 days after I gave her a nice EJ razor, some Feather blades, and some brushless shaving creams for her birthday.
She called me at work afterwards to tell me how great it was and that she threw out her old cartridge razor. She was very happy with the outcome (and so was I)!
