I am hoping that my order with my first DE razor arrives today or tomorrow. In it I have a Merkur Long Handle (23c) with WCS's Extended sampler pack with:
# Merkur Super Platinum (10 blades)
# Feather New Hi-Stainless Platinum (10 blades)
# Crystal or "Israeli" (10 blades)
# Derby Extra (5 blades)
# Gillette Platinum (5 blades)
# BIC Chrome Platinum (5 blades)
# DORCO Platinum (10 blades)
# Red Pack Israeli (5 blades)
I also ordered 2 scents of Col. Conk's soap, a cake of Proraso soap, and a tube of Cremo cream.
Does anyone have any recommendations on a blade/soap(or cream) combo for the first time. I'm planning on taking notes on the blades/soaps so that when I need to reorder I'll have an idea of what I like more.
