Used mine last night. I liked the firmness. Usually use a kent silver tip which is a little too soft. So this was a nice change

Last night i washed it a few times with shower gel. The brush seems better now, the bristles have softened and dont seem as firm now.
I reckon it will produce much better lather on my next shave.

Never bothered washing it first as its supposed to be sterilized and it definitely had no funk smell to it, it even made me wonder if its synthetic. Didn't lather up well using my usual shave soap, nowhere near as good as my badger hair brush, it wasn't even as good as my cheapo Wilkinson Sword brush that i've had for years. I'm hoping it just needs breaking in a bit and will get better.One good point, it didn't lose even a single bristle, which is pretty good for a new brush.

Yes people still use these, they exfoliate and lift beard hairs away from the face to allow for the razor to cut the hair rather than pull it, this way also allows more hair to be shaved per pass if you use a safety razor (double or single edge).
Like any products gels and foam in a can were made to support our ever expanding need to rush around, thrrefore, contains a lot of ingrediants that are not good for your face, personally i use shave creams that need a brush as i enjoy taking the time to lather up, mens grooming is seen as a bit of a taboo to many but i enjoy taking half an hour each day after a shower to do my routine however, if you prefer "canned goo" and it works for your lifestyle, my friend you carry on there is no right way just different ways 😁

Just get a slant razor or a old adjustable Gillette from eBay. With an adjustable you can change the blade exposure and find what works for you. And slants are just generally better at cutting whiskers.

Tbh feathers are way over rated too.
Again any Gillette's are the bee's knees.
Sputniks are really good, and cheap, but most eBay ones are ancient and don't seem to be as sharp as new factory fresh.

You can get 50 blades for under £7, I tend to use my blades 3 times so that is 150 shaves which for me is a years shaving. I also like the palmolive shaving cream which is cheap in tesco's.


Thanks kingy, I order a pack of 5 from the shavelounge to try, also tried the personna and they were much smoother, thanks for that.

Where is the best place for the Wilkinson sword blades? Might get some.

A cheaper way to shave your pits is to get items 300898425079 and 321829841158 will last you years of shaves.

Would anyone reccomend this for a woman, I want a cheaper way to shave my armpits.

Surprised this isn't hotter and more comments. The DE shavers on here usually go mental on these DE shaving deals, with pages and pages of comments extolling the virtue of DE shaving.
I wonder where they all are !
Maybe they've all bled to death.

Merkur 38C and Feather blades give a brilliant shave but probably try this starter kit first as you might end up looking like something from a horror film if you get the angles wrong with the Feather blades. Good deal, certainly better than cheap chinese DE razors and blunt blades.

I got a bowl of palmolive soap & brush for under a fiver, blades are cheap anyway & stems can be bought for under a fiver too (cheap Chinese stuff good for trialling DE) Hot from me



There is no comparison between a cheap Chinese razor and a quality Merkur. Shaving with the cheap one will put you off DE shaving as you will get nicks. I made that mistake. But the shave with a quality razor is fantastic, no cuts at all!

What type of razor do you use, then?

Glad to see all the DE shavers coming out in support. I am another Edwin Jagger user but Merkur 34c is also a fine razor. One of the smartest things I ever did was ditching cartridge shaving. The shave I now get is amazing compared to my old gillette Mach3. If any one is thinking of starting DE shaving check out the Badger and blade forum, Those guys are really helpful. Also as jbni says above look up any geofatboy youtube video for tips, this guy is DE Royalty !!. One last thing let the weight of the head do the work .

Straight razors, cut throats and shavettes have little stopping you from causing massive damage.Shaving with a cut throat though can be very rewarding and you may feel, after a successful cut throat shave, that you wish to beat your chest with balled fists, however, after an unsuccessful or careless cut throat shave you may have a need for a blood transfusion.DE shaving can be cheap, effective and rewarding.



Thanks for this. DE does look a little easier to handle than a SE razor.

The link given above (click here to go directly) looks like it has a good selection of sample packs. My guess is that the pack, depending on how many blades, will last you at least 6 months, maybe up to a year - for under a tenner. Plus you get to try a selection of blades and find which you prefer. Then Amazon is your friend as there are often great deals for blades in bulk.

I assume that the superdrug razor is the standard size.

ive been using a superdrug safety razor for over a year - cost me about a fiver and i honestly cant see how you can imrove on the quality of that shave. cold.

Agree with Whammerhead - I use the Edwin Jagger DE and it is great, a few quid less. It was my first foray into a DE safety and I'd never look back... The shave is so much better than a Gillette cartridge and much, much better value - give it a go, you won't look back!
