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.


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.
