I'm starting this thread really just for myself. But if anyone wants to chime in, even better.



I want to try as many different combinations of soaps, creams, oils, pre-shaves, razors, blades, brushes, etc. etc. over the course of the year, trying not to duplicate, to see what conclusions I come to.



January 1



PREP: Hot shower, Noxcema

BRUSH: ShaveNation Best Badger

RAZOR: G1 FatBoy

Blade: Voskhod (?)

Soap: HTGAM Cavendish

Aftershave: Geo Trumper's Skin food (Lime)



I've been a huge fan of my FatBoy for quite some time now. Usually I do 3 passes WTG, XTG, ATG dialed at 7-7-3 respectively. Today being the New Year I decided to dial it up for the first time beyond 7. I started my first pass at 8. WOW! The difference between 7 & 8 is quite astounding! I would venture to say that the aggressiveness is nearly doubled! Anyone else experience this drastic change in aggressiveness from 7 to 8?



After pass number 1 I dialed it back to the more comfortable IMHO 7 for pass number 2, then completed the shave ATG set to 5.



CONCLUSION: DFS



SWMBO then proceeded to use the same razor still set to 5, blade, soap, and prep to skillfully shave my head. Also DFS.



Happy New Year wet-shavers!


Life's too short. To use multi-blade cartridges.
