I've been a wet shave guy since I started shaving but always with a modern 2 or 3 blade commercial cartridge. Was Gillette Sensor for a long time and then moved to Sensor Excel and then Mach III (or something like that). I started off with an antique badger hair brush and a mug and now use some tube cream my wife buys me. Problem is that the shrinking buying power of the USD has made these things quite expensive; especially when you also shave your head with them. I replace the head each week or when it starts to pull rather than cut. I recently purchased my first electric razor. It's a Phillips Norelco Arcitec and while it doesn't do a very good job on longer neck hair, it's passable if I swipe my wet razor once a week to catch the longer hairs the electric misses. I'm thinking of trying the old 'Safety Razor' that uses the 2 edge razor blades or going ulti-man and trying to learn the art of shaving with a straight razor. Whatcha use?
