    I just found this great site yesterday and decided to join today. I started reading about DE and straight razors about a month ago. Then I started searching local antique stores and found a fatboy first. I have found three vintage Gillette's so far. I've been lucky and they are all in great shape. I would like to start collecting old Gillette's, but the prices on ebay and etsy are a little steep for me right now. I also bought a Dovo straight razor, but haven't used it much yet. I wish I would have known about DE razors when I first started shaving. I've been using Sword and Feather blades, but may try Voskhod and Astra after reading some of the posts here.

    You're in the right place man, welcome! I know how you feel about the collecting razors, I have a few myself. As for blades, the Israeli Crystals, Gillette 7 o' Clock series, and Personna's are all blades I enjoy, they might be worth checking out. Your best bet is to go for a sampler pack from either bullgooseshaving.net, razorbladesandmore, west coast shaving. Then you can try all sorts of blades and find what's good and what sucks.
