Just stumbled accross this place, and wish I had found it years ago (was it around then ? )
Been shaving for about 30 years... but never knew how ! Sort of bled my way though it.
Started with a cheap single blade razor... went to electric, then tried "new fangled" products as they came along. (wet and electric)
So far, I think my "favorite" shave has been "Protector" (wilkinson sword ?) with little wires over the blade... but this has long since gone off our shelves.
The past few years have seen me using the "Mach3" but since loosing my job, the blades have become more a luxury item !
They are SO expensive in the UK, and the market is flooded with counterfeit blades, its impossible to know which you are getting - and either ALL our local shops are getting counterfeit ones, or the quality has dropped off markedly ..... the past year I just cannot get the job done without lots of passes and pain
So I thought I would dig out the old single blade razor... but its grown legs, and fell into the void, so its time for a brand new one
Ive been reading for DAYS now, trying to find MY razor... and its soo confusing, I am more or less settled on a Merkur FUTUR - it IS a lot of money to me... but Im determined to buy the ONE.... the one that will pay for itself, and last longer than me
So, any help and/or advice would be most welcome...
Dont know if this has a bearing:
I am overweight, dark haired... and only get a GOOD shave in the bath
