i have no idea how he does it, but he just wields any razor around his face as if it were nothing with such speed! The guys is amazing. Biggrin
The only thing i have not seen him use is an SE razor. Does he have one?

Don't know about an SE, as in old style, but he does have a video using a Cobra and a Schick. He even makes the Feather AS-D1 work.

I enjoyed the one he did a couple of months ago, when he shaved outdoors in the snow with a travel razor.
Although he did use warm water, so it wasn't quite the display of chutzpah it could of been had he say...shaved with cold water, Vostok and a splash of Osage Rub afterward. Biggrin

Everything he uses on his videos he sells on his online store. But just the fact that he can use any kind of razor and make it look simple is amazing.

I think his videos are the best.

Proving, he's found the angle of no angle, that has proven so elusive to so many. Smile

..and will continue to do so for so many. Glad you found the Aladdin's cave of angle. The rest of us will just have to remain nine to fivers and use usable razors, i.e. "the usability of usability"...

I have always enjoyed his shaving videos, they are very informative and always fun to watch. I swear his beard (especially his neck) grows perfectly north to south. I have about 5 different "angles of attack" just to get my neck close while maintaining comfort. He goes straight up and straight down with no issues in every shave. Lucky man!

Watching him shave with an R-41 is a religious experience.

I found Geo's videos when I first started. They have been a HUGE help to me. I hope that he tunes in and see's this thread!

He appears to have a huge collection of straights, I'll bet that he's got some videos with those as well.

Edit to add: "Clear the runways!" Smile

I've watched his Feather videos over and over wondering how he gets such a close, irritation free shave with those crazy blade angles.

His blade angle is much steeper than mine, for sure. He must have a face like aluminum siding. Smile

Geo Fatboy's Videos are some of the most informative and entertaining on the internet. In my case, his were some of the first videos I saw online, which launched me on my quest for a more comfortable and results oriented shave; although I won't say the cheapest. Some of the equipment purchased by us shavers can get out of hand, for example: Cobra Razor, Spartacus Straight, Lavender Soaps, Vintage Gillettes, Fragrant Oils, Designer Fragrances and or whatever our individuals desires dictate.

Geo Fatboy is knowledgeable on all types of shaves. I highly recommend watching his videos, he explains various techniques with diverse equipment.

Happy Shaving.

Sam

I love his videos and glad he just released a new one yesterday Smile

As said he makes any kind of razor work.
Mild, aggressive, straight, DE, SE and he could even use a piece of hard rock and cold water and get a DFS Tongue

I like his videos as well. Watching him wield the R41 convinced me it wasn't the monster I feared. Therefore I purchased one and it is a favorite! Very nice videos. Informative and entertaining.

I love Geo's videos. His first lather making video what got me hooked. I thought what a pleasure shaving would be if I could shave like that. Of course, no one said this would get to be as expensive as it did.
