Hello all, figured I should check in. I've already found West Coast Shaving and bought a kit. I started out with a Merkur 34C, Mitchells soap, with an old Ever Ready badger brush, and my fathers old Old Spice mug. I tried the Merker blade that came with the razor but found it to be like trying shave with a rusty spoon. I'm currently trying the Feathers that came in a sampler and oddly I kinda feel like they're to sharp the first time, and perfect the second two times. Am I losing my mind on the too sharp the first time?
