Not sure that I understand this comment.
I believe he agrees that spending the money on skin care is better than the hardware.  

Other than Ethos there are dozens of soaps I would reach for before Cella starting at Proraso.

Regarding this thread: I have a rule when trying out razors. I will always try to find a way to get a great shave with any razor that comes into my hands. Only when I can consistently get great shaves with it will I decide if I want to keep it or not. 

My thought is that the tool should work. I may need to modify my technique somewhat to make it work, but it should work. I have yet to come across a razor that hasn't worked for me. I definitely prefer a more aggressive shaver of moderate weight, but even a light mild razor will work with some technique adjustment.

Just kidding, I absolutely agree with you: there are personal preferences, and everyone IMO should try a bunch of stuff to build them to really enjoy the hobby. But if the tool doesn't work, the problem is just in the hands holding it, nothing else.

Quote:Once I can get consistently good shaves, I will decide if the style matches my preferences and if it does not, I will get rid of it.
That's the reason why my RAD - both in straight and safety razors - died pretty quickly.
