Hello. I'm in my late sixties and have been using Proraso in a can for years. I just recently got a boar hair brush and started using Proraso shaving soap for sensitive skin. Great stuff. Now I've come into a 195i Gillette Aristocrat, which I've started shaving with. So far I haven't cut myself. I have a light beard, but I can start to look a little scruffy after a day or two. I could certainly get away with using a cartridge razor, but I've already noticed better skin tone, To tell you the truth, the best thing abut the DE razor is the nostalgia trip. Anyway, praise the Internet for catring to such interests and obsessions.
