Hey all, as you can tell I am brand spankin new to B&B ;)
I would like to be able to stop buying cartridges for my Fusion as the price is quite ridiculous, and move up to a straight edge razor. I assume the only things I need to purchase often is lather which has to be done with any wet razor.
My question is, what is a great starter straight edge razor, lather, brush and strop (assuming that's all I need, right? hopefully) I'd like to get a razor that's "shave ready" (if it's shave ready, does that mean I only have to strop it every so often and get it sharpened professionally when the time comes? I read it should be sharpened every 6months - 1year. how correct is that?)
I know nothing about straight edge razors or how any of it works, and honestly seems quite confusing for something so simple. I just want to cut the hairs on my face with a straight edge. Could it be that simple? Or am I waiting for pigs to fly?
I'm looking at Dovo razors as the price isn't all that bad and they look good.
Please note I'm not looking to become a shaving professor or take it as a hobby as a lot of you do. I just want to shave with a straight edge razor lol I hope you can understand that.
But at the same time I want to make sure I am getting my moneys worth and purchasing the proper gear the first time.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
