My wife presented me with a Edwin Jagger DE Razor, Badger Brush and Proraso Shave Soap for father's day. She was shocked that I didn't already shave this way since I "like all that old man stuff." (you know...Barbershops, Briar Pipes, Whisky's, etc)
I had been begrudgingly shaving with an overpriced Mach 3 since its introduction, so I was quite excited to give this a whirl. Minus a nicked mole, I have a quite pleasurable first, second, and third shave. I have a difficult spot directly under my chin which seems to be a common issue. I'm sure time and patience will make the experience even better. I am still sorting through the massive amounts of great information here.
