DFS 2018 LE Brush Announced!!! Read more here!!

#1
Rediscovered traditional wet shaving five years ago this January. Dove in head first -- modern razors, vintage razors, DE, SE, a (very) brief flirtation with the shavette. For the last year have used virtually nothing other than the devette -- DE razor minus the base plate (hex nut instead), or with a guardless baseplate -- total blade exposure. The technique is surprisingly easy to learn, and the payoff is an amazingly irritation-free shave. Fewer strokes = less irritation.  Smile

Other preferences:
Blades: Gillette 7 0'Clock Permasharp a/k/a Indian Greens; Gillette Silver Blue; Russian Perma-Sharps
Brush: boar (Omega 10049 or 10048)
Soap: Mike's Hungarian Lavender; Monsavon; Arko; Classic Shaving Jasmine
Cream: TOBS Avocado; Ingram's
Aftershave: Floïd Vigoroso; Aqua Velva Musk; Denim Original and Musk; Master Jade; Stephan's Bay Rum and Island Lime

Welcome, again, Carl. I hope you'll pop into our Writing Instruments thread in The Lounge where some of us shmooze about all things fountain pen. Smile

I like aggressive razors, but the devette makes me nervous.
