Hello everybody, I finally found a way to cure myself from DE RAD for good. My solution: I started shaving with a str8 about two weeks ago. Haven't used any DE since I started with my str8(s), no desire either. I believe I'm lost for the DE department of this wonderful hobby. Str8 is what I intend to use exclusively. I get shaves as good, sometimes better than with a DE, with a lot less skin irritation. Uhmm, yes my cure from DE RAD had just some minor side effects: I bought 10 straight razors, 4 hones, and 2 strops so far. Other than that my cure from DE RAD really worked, didn't it?
