Ditch your expensive cartridge razor, and shave like a real man! A double edged razor gives a better shave with less irritation than the multi bladed monstrosities, as well as saving you a bucket of money.

I estimate that a hundred blades will last me two years, saving me a small fortune.

I estimate that a hundred blades will last 20 seconds as i accidentaly cut my throat !! I still use a "Rolls Razor" lol

Any Derby users out there? I've always used feathers and they're bloody excellent. Just wondering if these are as good.
#3
The Derby blades aren't quite as sharp as feathers, still regarded as excellent blades, but a step down if you're used to shaving with the Feather blades.
#4
I use the typical Gillette fusion blades etc and i think ill give this type of blade/shave a go :D

I use these, never used other blades to compare them to, but they're great. Will NEVER go back to "multi-blade" again. I use a new blade for every shave and it still works out cheaper, not to mention a lot kinder to my skin.

Get a badger hair brush and use a GOOD soap instead of foam/gel. Handmade soaps on eBay are great and seem to last forever.

For those of you interested in trying this old fashioned method of shaving, it's worth visiting http://www.badgerandblade.com and http://www.reddit.com/r/wicked_edge

Both have great communities.

for those of you interested in trying out a 'safety razor' but don't want to spend much to see if you get on with them, Gilette do a plastic bodied one, with blades for about £5, it's not a great bit of kit, but gives you a feel for the style. I've got one, and much prfer it to the multiblades, and will be upgrading when i shave off my beard :D

I use derby and feathers mostly, feather are sharper but derbys are great too

Anyone interested in trying out shaving with a DE razor check out the Edwin Jagger De89bl also on amazon - just over £15 and a cracking razor - I prefer it to my murker HD which was twice the price :)

Agree best way to shave i now have a Merkur HD, and a Edwin Jagger DE89, the DE89 is one of the best razors you can buy brilliantly made and under £20 on amazon
Currently going through 100 Asco Blades i purchased they are very nice.
Have used Derbys and like them as well.
Favourite blades so far though have to be the Wilkinson Sword Black made in Germany

I get 5-6 shaves per blade on the Ascos
Derbys 4-5
Wilkinsons 7-8

I've got a couple of sleeves of the UK made wilkinson sword blades (before they transfered the work abroad) and they are very good. A couple of colleges used to work there and found the blades lying around in their lofts. ;)

I use a Merkur 38C, or 36C? Can't remember the number, but I am still using the blades I got 'free' with my order. I think they are Israeli blades or something like that, I may pick some of these ones up ready for when they run out though :)

Hi Guys
Had a look at the store front and noticed some deals on kits.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/qid=1301555605/ref=sr_gnr_fkmr0?ie=UTF8&node=&search-alias=aps&field-keywords=100%20Derby%20Extra#/ref=sr_pg_2?rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3A100+Derby+Extra&page=2&keywords=100+Derby+Extra&ie=UTF8&qid=1301555642


Can anyone recommend some good sites to buy a starter kit.

Not too expensive as that can come after (expensive set) I have tried it. I guess a razor and brush and anything else that comes with it is a bonus.

cheers
#16
I use these Derby blades and they are good. one blade normally lasts me about 6 shaves - i like to keep them sharp, and at 10p i can afford to get a new one out of the packet :)

Not sure this is much of a deal though, i think its the normal price. Still hot though just for the blades :)

I couldn't get on with Derby's personally, but I'd recommend the voyage into DE Shaving for everyone.

I switched to an Edwin Jagger DB87 a few weeks ago (Ivory look handle from Amazon £15.72) which came with Derby blades.
The blades are excellent and I haven't had a single nick or cut, they last a long time and the feeling is so direct and responsive that you can feel when the blade is losing it's edge and ready for change.
I'd recommend Derby blades and the Edwin Jagger DE head, after years of using cartridge based razors for years I will never go back to them - it's not only the cost saving, the DE gives a better, more satisfying shave every time.
#22
I am amazed that people still wet shave,I have been using a Phillishave for 35 years or more and have probably saved weeks of time as it must be a least half the time to dry shave rather than wet.
My dad had really heavy tough facial hair and he spent the last 10 years of his life using an electric shaver.
I recently persuaded my son in law to go electric after he moaned about the cost of double/triple razor cartridges, his face was a bit sore at first but after the 1st month he said he would never go back to Wet shaving again.
I prefer Rotary type rather than foil, if you have ever tried a foil shaver and been put off electric shavers then try a rotary, they are (IMHO) much better.
There are some cracking deals which can get you a triple head £100 shaver for half that price.

Sorry to go on for so long but if you are saving 5 minutes a day over say minimum of 50 years adult life, Well you work it out !
#23
Would you recommend this type of razor to someone who only shaves twice a week despite the need to shave daily...?! I like stubble but I also like a clean shave so the multi blade razors can pull quite a bit after a couple of days growth. Cheers.

A lot of champions of the old school shaving techniques (myself included) prefer a wet shave precisely because of the time it takes. Rather than just sticking a blunt, hot electrical implement onto my face, I take the time to soak and wash my face fully, then wrap my face in a hot towel, before applying a luxurious shaving soap with a high quality badgers hair brush, then take the time to shave my face slowly and accurately, ending with an icy rinse and application of a good post shave balm. This gives a perfect shave with no irritation or razor burn, which I thoroughly enjoy as it is some of the only time I get to myself, and it feels like a treat every time.

Nicely put! Makes me want to go and have a shave right now! :{

derby blades are decent, they are my back up blade should the feathers run out etc.

Not as sharp or thin as feathers, but give a good shave nonetheless.

voted hot for a hot deal.

p.s. as cliche_guevara points out, there is a world of difference between a wet shave (using those nasty triple blade disposable things) and a wet shave which uses these de or safety razors and following a bit of a ritualised morning shaving routine.

The later really is a bit of luxury time to oneself and produces the most satisfying and close shave possible.

Especially suited to those with sensitive skin who usually suffer from razer burn or ingrowing hairs etc as the whole process encourages the use of pre and post moisturising and skin prep creams and lotions alongside a super sharp blade all work together to create the perfect shave.

Loads of vids up on youtube for those wanting to try it out and even forums dedicated to "proper" wet shaving, not this gillette **** they would have us believe is the proper wet shaving.

I still use an electric razor most days but I find it really struggles around the neck or if I have a few days growth but it does save time. The days where I have the time I use my DE razor and shave properly, it's a world of difference.

Ok i personally have some loves and hates
I started with a cheap synthetic brush while ok its nothing like feeling best badger hair on your face.
I got a Crabree and Evelyn Best Badgerbrush have had this around 5 years now and is still perfect
As for shaving soaps I pretty much have tried them all
My favourite has to be the cheapest possible Erasmic shaving soap.
Can be found in Savers (like a superdrug) or Boyes (up North)
http://www.theshaveden.com/forum/showthread.php?t=405
The stuff smells amazing and have had so many comment of people asking what it is.
Great lather, amazing smell (its manliness in a tub)
My Brush is similiar to this
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Edwin-Jagger-Handmade-Imitation-Shaving/dp/B003UV8LOS/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1301579406&sr=8-2

The razor of choice for me is this one now
http://www.amazon.co.uk/product-reviews/B003LW4L2W/ref=cm_cr_dp_synop?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=0&sortBy=bySubmissionDateDescending#RO75ZJUVDKG9V

Ignore the bad review from some idiot who threw it in the bin without testing it.

Amazing quality the razor should cost easily £40 upwards much better than the Merkur HD that is so well reviewd makes the merkur look like nasty industrial manufacturing.

Have tried tons of soaps but as i say the erasmic is my go to always.

I have a cheapish badger brush that cost about £15, think its an edwin jagger, badger is much better than bristle IMO but bristle is fine starting out

The shaving cream that I use most is Taylor of old bond street (various scents)
Proraso is also good
A good cheap one is Ingrams - this is readily available

If your not sure about which blades are best, a lot of the online sellers do packs containing samples from a number of manufacturers so you can give them all a try

Part of the fun is experimenting :)

It was a post similar to this 18 months ago which made me move into the world of DE shaving. I love it. I still use my electric one now and again, especially when i wake up at 8.40 and need to have set off to work 5 mins ago :)

You cant have a quick shave with a DE razor but its a much nicer shave :)

I bought a Merkur 34C Heavy Duty Classic about 3 years ago from shaving shack.
I use the soap from l'occitane, lasts ages, good texture and nice smell.
Normally buy Tesco OB blades as a rule but will try these derbys.
Thanks OP

Be careful, those who are in it to save money, as wet shaving is seriously addictive! I have a right collection built up.....there's always something else you 'need'.

I have since switched to a rotary shaver though. The time was too great during the week, so i save it for the weekend.

Once you have gotten used to DE wet shaving, well, then theres cut throats to try.....
#40
Any interested try Badger and Blade - one online shaving forum where you will get great advice. I switched a few years ago and find shaving a pleasure rather than the chore it used to be.

For soaps try Taylors or Trumpers - expensive but they last for ages.
