Hello!! I figured that I'd introduce myself. I started off about 5 months ago with an impulse buy of an ej89 and proraso soap and aftershave.

I didn't know much at the time and Ive been having such a bad experience shaving with cartridge razors for so long that I decided to give something new a try.

As expected, results were great and my addictive personality kicked in and it's become a hobby. I've aquired a handful of soaps, razors, and other shave gear.

So far I've really been enjoying a Gillette slim and old type. Are there any modern open comb razors that are similar to the old type?? I've seen the razorock that was modeled after it but the razorock is much more mild.

Good to have you on DFS!

If you haven’t already, check out the iKon ShaveCraft 103 Short Comb. I believe it takes design ques from the Gillette Old Type, and is definitely not a mild razor.
Whenever I go to shave, I assume there’s someone else on the planet shaving, so I say “I’m gonna go shave, too.”
