lol, you two are nuts. 

 

But really, cool thread. I did some research on this a few years back but never pulled the trigger. Its something that seems interesting and worth looking at again. Maybe I just need to bite the bullet and do it.

It's worth a shot.  The only scary aspect is straight shaving, which I don't recommend until after you are decently adept with a safety.

I just use a Gilette. I'm lazy and my facial grows back in like 4 days anyway so why go through the extra effort. :P

I've had it for about a month now. Best shave ever and I got a 100 pack of blades for $11 that should last 2 years.

Starting an aftershave collection now...

This is the first one in my collection. Definitely a classic. You'll smell kind of like you just walked out of a 50's barber on a battleship and got snapped with a wet towel on the way out. Refreshing! Back to work solder! Sent from my Nexus 4

@Jessesmith888, love that one.  I had a sample a while back and it's amazing.  Pairs really nicely with sandalwood scented creams/soaps.

Ya know, I'd love do find an actual store that sells this kind of stuff. Sometimes I like to see something before I buy it.

@Jessesmith888, Bath and Body Works sells CO Bigelow...that's Proraso IIRC.

 

And there is the Art of Shaving, but that's overpriced.

Thanks I did not know that! That's one of the stores I actively try to avoid, but looks like I'll have to check it out now.

It's probably cheaper on Amazon and under the Proraso name, but if you need quality cream in a pinch it's a godsend.
