Welcome back. Nice rant.
Except I don't get the point. At first I thought you were miffed 'cause guys are pinching pennies when they should be more worried about results, but then you mentioned the benefits of some cheaper products. I couldn't agree more with that assessment. I've written extensively how my best shaves come from the "cheaper" soaps and creams. Blades are pretty much cheap no matter what you get. An SS or Merkur runs about 20 bucks which ain't bad. The only thing I splurged on is the brush and that was totally worth it. So if you're saying one shouldn't worry about loading up w/ fancy shmancy products while breaking the bank I'm with you. But a nice brush feels reeeealllly good.
btw you ever ski Park City? I've always wanted to go there, but haven't made it yet. Someday...
