I recently ordered:
* Merkur travel razor (CC)
* Merkur 39C Sledge Hammer Slant bar razor
* Proraso nick sealer
First and foremost the shipping time was shocking... Within 20 minutes of placing the order, I was notified it was shipped. With Amazon.com it usually took at least a week (usually longer). Now, I am new to "old fashion" shaving methods. I ordered my first safety razor a month ago, in addition to Taylor of Old Bond Street shaving cream, a Parker badger brush, Proraso pre-post shave cream and aftershave. To say the least, shaving has gone from a nightmare to ENJOYABLE for me. My bear is very thick and coarse, so shaving was very painful for me with the cartridge razors (5 blades). Bleeding, razor burn, ingrown hairs, etc... My most recent shave with a Merkur 180 long handle safety razor left my face baby smooth, few nicks (still learning (:) NO RAZOR BURN. My face didn't even feel like I'd shaved. Thank you thank you thank you, Geo! Your videos and recommended...
