    Women of The Shave Den I'm reaching out to you. I have had a couple women who have expressed interest in double edge shaving ask me how to get started. Being new to this myself and being of the male gender I don't know what to recommend. Using all of the knowledge you have now, how would you recommend a new female double edge shaver get started? Starting out inexpensively but still with quality products is a requirement. I'm opening this question to the vast wealth of knowledgeable information here. Thank you in advance.

    Generally, women do well with long-handled razors, as they have to reach around backs of calves, etc. As for blades, soaps & brushes, we have to try different things, to see what we like (same as the men.) So a sample pack of blades is a good idea. Many women look for old razors, like Lady Gillettes on eBay. I use a Parker 29L.

    My recommendations are the same regardless of a person's gender.

    1. Start with a brush and soap/cream.
    2. after learning to lather, look at razors & blades.

    Thanks everyone. The advice on longer handled razors is helpful. Not something I would have thought of. Though like everything else YMMV I'm sure.

    Yes, YMMV. Long handles are a preference not a necessity.
    I have shaved my legs with a straight razor. That's like having no handle length at all, as far as "reaching" goes.
