I'm obviously new here but I have been doing the wet shave with a DE safety razor for a while now Merkur Futur). Well, unless I'm in a hurry in which case I use a disposable, I find I tend to bleed a lot less that way! I just picket up a shavette (Merker)with the goal of getting comfortable with handling/holding and shaving with that style/layout. Used it once and finally the bleeding stopped which was a positive! The goal will be to eventually grow into a straight razor. IN TIME. So, I've be reading the various threads and will continue to do so. But I have a questions that I'm hoping you'd be willing to answer: what is your opinion of Art of Shaving razors, materials, supplies, etc. They seem to have nice stuff in terms of creme, razors, brushes, etc. They're not cheap and obviously heavy on the marketing and sales but there's a lot to be said for the convenience of going to the store, picking stuff up, handling it, etc. So, what are your thoughts on them (or the equivalent)?
