I have a few "luxury" razors and soaps and enjoy them. I also have several vintage razors and inexpensive soaps that cost very little by comparison but provide a great shave. I find the value is more about the variety of experience rather than one being inherently better than another.

I do not believe luxury grooming products are worth the money or give you a better shave.

I use Santa Maria Novella shave soap, Antica barbiera Colla apricot balm, a Paladin brush, and a Stealth Slant razor

and my shaves are just as good if not better than they would be with any overrated, overpriced shaving products;D

I have no hesitation laying out top dollar for interesting hardware, but am loathe to spend more than $19 for a a soap or cream. I enjoy the scents and performance of tons of soaps and creams under $15.

At the end of the day, for me, DE wet shaving itself, with any kit that works, is a luxurious activity. 

This idea has recently been enforced while considering a travel setup. What I love about DE shaving is having all the relevant gear on hand and being able to take my time and enjoy the process and the outcome. I'm never going to enjoy it as much in a hotel as I do at home. So for now, I stick with cartridges when traveling.

My dear friend;

Nice setup you have!

It would be considered expensive by most, middle of the road by some, and on a budget by a little few. But must of all would agree that traditional wet shaving in general is a luxury.

We can have a great shave with arko, plissoft, merkur, etc. The luxury is not in the money involved, at least for me!

Best regards,
