Not as good as it was. Better than it will be.
That's what I'm talkin about guvnor!
That's why there is only one New York City. I can walk into Shoppers Drug Mart (think Canadian Rite-Aid or Walgreens), which is a great drug store, but I'ld be lucky to find any double-edge blades at all!If wasn't for online shopping I couldn't find anything!
I agree. That sums it all up in one photo.MLmlanesepic.blogspot.com
Careful with those Feathers if you are just starting out. Glad to see more folks trying the DEs. Did you pick up a nice brush?
Shoppers has DE blades—Gillette—but they're about about $13 for 10.
Glad to see more people trying the old ways. I been wet shaving for three years now. Be careful with those Feathers. Light touch. What else did you pick up there?
Anon-OK.Prep Pauper- I had the same probs down in FL. The world is lousy with souless product all marketed by Americans intent on no taste, no drama, no style and flip flops.M Lane- This city never ceases to amaze me and I'm grateful for it every day. Tom- I've tried the Merkur, Feather, Astra and Derby. My .02 is: Derby- (Sweden) is my favorite so far.Feather- (Japan)Not so much. I may need more time. Left me with lots of tiny little nicks. No blood though.Astra - Oddly no markings on package for country of origin. Turns out they're made in Russia by a factory owned by Gillette.Not a bad blade for a people who put out a great tank.I bought a Muehle brush a few years ago at Mertz in Chicago and did the Trumper soap with a cartridge. Took too long. Will try the brush and soap again on weekends. I use Santa Maria Novella shaving foam and it works very well with the DE. It's great fun shaving with a DE. There's a touch to it and I feel like I missed 30 years to practice. The heft of the razor, the slide of the blade down the skin, the washing of the blade in a sink of water...all very meditative and soulful and cheap. Wrenkin- Those sound like the Russkie blades. $13 for 10? Ah, it's out old friends at Gillette.
