My first blade was a Double Arrow, white scales from KenRup. He made it shave ready. 6/8 and I find that it is the most comfortable blade I have. The price is reasonable. You will need a strop and Tony Miller makes beautiful ones. With some he will sell you a practice strop for a little extra coin, well worth it IMHO. Watch the shaving videos, you can see Lynn's at the SRP, posted in installments. Good Luck on your new adventure. The journey may be long so take it slow and ENJOY!!!!!
Ah come on, Just ONE more shave!
