Converting a MIII/Fusion shaver into a DE Shaver...it's a tough road
I read the article on Zenhabits.net about wet shaving, followed by the comments. It was a well written article, informative, and to the point. Both some positive comments, and some very negative ones were added.
I'm a recently converted DE shaver, who was simply in pursuit of a closer shave than my Mach III was providing.
It just seems to me that there are two camps. In one camp...the disposable cartridge guy. Time pressed, just git 'er done shaver. Shaving just isn't that big of a deal to him. And no matter what you say, they just won't consider a DE shave.
Some are the new generation of shavers are plugged with zillions of marketing dollars to get the 4-5 blade cartridges. Plus, most of them never saw their dad use a DE.
In the other camp...the DE shaver. They have the DE (or several), plus soaps, creams, AS, etc. Shaving for them (like many on this board, myself included) is just as much about the closeness of the shave, as the total shaving experience.
Shaving is a matter of personal preference. Whatever works for you. I just don't like to see some of the stubborness exhibited by both camps.
