That's more like it thanks! I'll give this one a go before Spending more on the £20+ ones. This one works out at £2.68 delivered!

gives decent shave, steel nott crapppy zinc, good for starters who can use gel and shave up-down first few days.

For maniac vintage collectors like me:

Bought one of these for my wife who was always stealing my razor. Unbelievable for the money.

I normally use each edge only once. I could probably get away with more but there's nothing like that ultra sharp feeling - and at this price...


Same here, using Derby extra blades at the moment one shave per edge so 4 shaves a blade, any one know how astra's compare with derby's?

[quote=Nayana] How do you compare these with Gillette fusion ?
WAY BETTER. I'm 50, and have wet shaved all my life. As a treat when in Spain I always pay for a barber shave (only 5 euros) because i couldn't believe how much closer they shave than ANY cartridge system can get for me.
I recently went to DE shaving and get the same results. it takes some getting used to, and I do have a few small scrapes, but try it and see if it is for you.

Thanks, could you also recommend a decent razor to use these?
cheers.

I use a Merkur 38C Barber Pole. It costs just under £40 but you won't ever regret it! It'll last you forever and give you an amazing experience every time!

This is now £11.50, less than a quid each stick!

Mind you, 12 sticks are gonna last a good year or 2!

Anyone know how this compares to Derby soap? I use that as its cheap, smells great and produces a great load of foam.

Has this shaving soap changed? It used to smell a lot more like really strong natural lemon. Nowadays it smells like toilet duck. Anyway I prefer Crabtrees & Evelyn lime products now. Hot for the price though.


got a link for crabtree&evelyn lime soap .
thx

Sure but they're a lot pricier than the Arko shaving bars. They smell fantastic though and create an excellent lather. They also do a cologne and other stuff in the same scent also. Which strangely happens to also be one of the best lime colognes/edt's out there. Anyway I usually get mine from escentual since it's the cheapest at around £16 with the wooden bowl but they have their own website and also their own store on Amazon where they sell them for £20 or so. One of those shaving soaps will probably last you a couple of months if you only shave twice a week like myself. They also started selling the soap as a refill for your wooden bowl for £8-10 on their website and escentual

thanks for links
will order shaving soap and take it from there

The WS brush aint that bad at all and i can get a perfectly acceptable lather with it, although i do use a better brush now.
Its all down to technique...... if you dont learn the technique of using a shaving soap and a brush, then the most expensive brush in the world wont make a difference.

I just tried a shaving stick (Palmolive) for the first time in my life. The brush used was a Wilkinson one.

I didn't like it. The lather was dry and sticky. The razor didn't glide on my face easily, like it used to do.

I binned the brand new stick and brush. Will not use again. I will stick to the 'stuff' that comes out of the overpriced cans.

To anyone who wants to try this: go for it, but only buy one stick. If it's not your cup of tea then you will not feel bad about throwing it away.

You have used what is possibly the worst shaving brush available. I had this brush and binned it on the first day itself. As a starter, get the Body Shop synthetic brush for around £6 (maybe even cheaper if you can get a discount) and try again.

Arko is much better than Palmolive and the stick lasts for ages. Best to rub it across your face and lather up. Vulfix 404 brush is the best starter brush for anyone who want to try the wet shaving method. Buy anything cheaper and you will only ruin the experience and hate it.Also, get an alum block as an antiseptic and rub it across your face immediately after shaving and rinse off after few minutes. Can be bought for less than a pound in Indian grocery shops and one block lasts for ages.:)
I want to try an Arko stick for comparison so have ordered some blades which come with a 'free' stick. I want to try it before I bulk purchase in case I don't like the controversial smell. Also it needs to be twice as good as my faithful Palmolive to justify double the price :)I'm also a alum block user - great natural antiseptic.

Well, my Arko arrived on Friday and I've had 3 shaves with it now. As a comparison with Palmolive, I'd agree that the lather is on par. It is slightly easier to apply as it's softer. The fresh lemon is perfectly acceptable to my nose. Something I hadn't appreciated before is the difference in size. The Arko is 75g compared with 50g so this closes the price gap difference. I noticed a slight tingling with the Arko that I don't with the Palmolive which suggests a healthy antiseptic quality.

I've decided that Arko is my new stick of choice and ordered the box of 12. The minimal packaging appeals to my eco tenancies. Th lack of holder at the end of a stick doesn't bother me.

Sounds like you didn't use enough (any?) water. Part of the joy of using soap and a brush (and a DE razor) is perfecting the technique. Once you do (it only takes a couple of attempts), the rewards in terms of improved shave are massive.

Accept that not everyone is too bothered about getting the smoothest, irritation-free shave. For those that are, a cartridge razor and canned soap are more convenient, but the quality of shave is miles apart.

I wonder if I should try something like this? I tend to use gel from a can and I can never really get a comfortable shave even when the razor is nice and new.
I used to use Noxema shaving foam as it was about the best for me. Despite having a really thick beard I got bad razor burn. With this stuff I have never had a problem - well unless I use a blunt razor but that is me being stingy!

PM me your address and when the 12 turn up I will chuck one in the post for you to have a try of.

It has a lemon aroma that reminds me of the my first school toilets.

It's ok as far as stocks go, but the lather feels a bit 'thin' for want of a better term when compared to others.
The smell of Arko is a bit 'marmite'. Some people hate it, others don't mind it. You buy it for the performance though (though I agree it isn't better than a Palmolive stick as someone commented earlier).
Just bought some proraso shaving soap

I heard this arko stuff doesn't smell very pleasant. True?
