THe DE Wet shave rabbit hole.
« on: January 24, 2024, 06:15:28 PM »
I've been wet shaving my face and head for about two years, and my gear keeps expanding along with my soaps and balms. I've just ordered my 8th razor and have a little guilt trip going on.

Anyone else?

Just wondering.

Yep, I know what you mean! The first couple of years of shaving my head, I experimented with many razors and soaps. After awhile, you know what works the best for you on a daily basis. Once in a while I like to use one of my three double edge safety razors and shaving soap and brush. My daily go to is a Shick Xtreme 3 disposable.
Bald by choice, and loving it!

I did the same thing early on. My first razor was a Gilette Sensor (Or was that a Schick?), then I went on to a Personna M-5 Magnum which I still have but cartridges are increasingly hard to find. A couple of SE safety razors and a couple of electrics and a couple of Head Blades and a Harry's cart razor (nice rig) and I finally convinced myself that it's a hobby and now I regret nothing.
It could always be worse; you could be hanging out at the local casino squandering the kids' college funds.
