I accept your challenge. Nothing but stainless allowed in the bathroom.Stainless.jpg

I went to using a shaving brush years ago with good shaving soap. I upgraded to a silvertip brush, pricey but it wil last years. Once you use a brush and soap (CO Biglow), you will not go back to canned shaving cream ever again. The best shave you will ever have.
I'd rather be lucky than good any day

I just like my Mitchell's Wool Fat and Cella too much to use anything else.
If you like boar, the Omega brand is cheap and much higher quality than the vdh. The only thing about boar is they require several uses to be really good.

I recently got this , a Gillette 1967 Slim adjustable. It sure beats using disposables. this razor was my grandfathers I believe.

I shave every other day (and always on Sunday) with my Grandfathers Gillette adjustable Fatboy 1963 (if I can remember correctly) with a Tweezerman boar bristle brush and Proraso shaving soap. I get a great shave and to have a personal connection to me Grandpa
A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.
I'll play. Here's a couple of gem single edge models (demaskeen and micromatic), an E4 fatboy, a merkur slant, and a merkur open comb. The slant gets 99% of my shaving duty.

My control of English is ok, but not perfect. What on earth is this thread about?
English is my second language, I have been told my use of it is harsh, apologies if this is the matter.

Ya'll have a lot of info here on shaving. I remember going off to college I brought a cheap double-edged razor, a mug soap and brush. I liked the smell and the idea of emulating my elder male generations. One time I was home from college, and typical student I forgot my shaving gear and needed to shave while home. I marched in my Dad's bathroom, grabbed his stuff and started to shave my young face with his "2 pound man razor". The dial was set on whatever number that means "donor skin setting" !!! YEOOOWWWW.
I'm lucky to have a job now that has no "dress-code", so I shave whenever I want to. I know this is blasphemy but I now use canned shaving cream, throwaway razors and a mirror hanging in the shower. No bumps, no nicks, no complaints from my wife.
Interesting thread, great memories, and I still like the smell of that mug soap.
Helpful hints on pushing back and strengthening the 2A:
I travel for a living and most of the times I have to carry on my overnight bag. So, I don't get to use my DE razor at least twice a week and have to rely on the caveman 9-razor blade having modern disposables. Do I get a close shave? Yeah, but still not as close. Do I get to press down as hard as I want? Sure.
But, in the end, I also get razor burn. I can't go back to the disposables full time and certainly can't go back to foam soap. Although, gun to my head (pun), I think the shaving brush is what really makes the most difference. Simply agitating your whiskers makes them stand up and are easier to cut. So, I always have my little travel brush and use a hotel coffee mug.
