    I rotate razors. During work days I usually shave with the Gillette fushion. The one that utilizes the battery in it. When I have a little more time, I use a double edged razor, or safety razor. On weekends, I sometimes shave with a straight razor given that I can take my time. I have several badger shaving brushes from simple to silver tip badger hair. Cream. Well never out of a can. That stuff is garbage and dries up your skin. Truefitt & Hill is excellent. Trumpers, Proraso, etc. Warm shower, pre-shave oil, brush on a good lather, and make yourself beautiful. After all that , then you can wear your Aventus.

    Thanks! This may work out for Dad best - he shaves with soap. We'll see how my son's shaving cream works with them once they finally arrive.

    It'll be interesting to see how they go with the razors.

    You may at some stage want to buy them the King of Shaves Azor Advanced Shaving Gel to complement their new razors. It is relatively inexpensive, it doesn't shave as smoothly as the more expensive creams, but it cushions. I have a lot less nicks and alum stings when I use it relative to other creams. I've posted about how great it is over at Badger & Blade, but I seem to be the only person among the thousands who visit the site to have tried it.

    Today I shaved with a Cobra Classic razor which uses the Feather Professional blades. What a fantastic shave. This razor is sort of a hybrid between a straight razor and a safety razor. Just two light passes on my face, and I can feel baby butt smooth skin. Incredible.

    Oh, I've really wanted to try one of those. It's a little outside of my budgetary constraints right now, but I've got my eye on it. Do you Badger & Blade or have you reviewed it anywhere yet?

    Those feather blades are great, I get about seven to eight shaves from them in my DE89 Jagger razor. They are the sharpest blades I have used and do the job perfectly each time.

    I've a EJ89L too and agree these are great. I use it for travelling.



    I've also got a Futur, Gillette Slim Adjustable from 1964 and a Merkur Slant 37C.







    I switch between the two adustables mainly and use the slant at weekends sometimes when I'm less rushed.

    I got 5 Fushion Pro-Glade razors, battery operated, and I made $2.00 doing it. Those coupons man. They work like a charm though. Absolutely the best razor I've used.

    Gillette Prostyler. Though since I barely have to shave, I guess any razor would work haha.

    I use a vintage Hoffritz Slant razor. It provides very close and smooth shaves. I have a handful of other similar razors that are used on occasion plus a few straight razors.

    I use the DE safety razors and really like the one made by Feather.
    It's so easy to use and never cut myself, even when I am in a rush.
    Brush is by Simpson, the X1, bit on the small side.

    I feel the same about my Weber polished. In fact I like it so much I've just ordered a DLC as well!

    P.S. I love the test-tube rack/toothbrush holder!

    P.P.S welcome to B.N!

    Me too and yes, welcome.

    Marais, how do you like the Futur ? Having gone back down to 1 razor this year ( 34c ), I've been having thoughts lately about ordering one.

    Overall I think it is excellent. I like the weight, the build quality, the noise it makes; it is a pleasure to use and I get a great shave out of it. This and Weber are my favourites.

    Minor quibbles:
    1. Getting right under the nose with the big head is tricky, even with it rotated 90 degrees. Rotating 180 means I'm more likely to get nicked (I always avoid ATG on the top lip). Anyway it means a bit of extra fuss.

    2. It's best not to adjust mid-shave as you do this by rotating the head, which risks injury. I just leave it on 2.5 anyway, which is roughly equivalent to my Slim set on 6.

    ^ Cheers for your thoughts, Marais.

    I've had razors with large heads before and know what you mean about getting into those tight spots under the nose. Always found a work-around, though.

    Let's see. If I get one in the new year I'll report back.

    For the past few months I've been using an Aristocrat Junior. It's British made, and performs amazingly well. I always get a good shave with a variety of blades.

    For travel I've been using the Gillette Guard which is a cartridge razor meant for the Indian market. It's "open comb." I get a surprisingly good shave from it.

    I've been using an Edwin Jagger DE86 with Proraso Green.

    Started shaving DE to get out of paying out the nose for cartridges (just $7.88 for a 100 pack of Derby blades vs $15 for like a 5 pack of Mach 3 cartridges...screw you, Proctor & Gamble), but I now I really like it.
