Help me please !

Discussion in 'Safety Razors' started by Cutthroat_trout, Jan 16, 2008.

  1. After being a loyal shaver for many years with triple blade razors, acquired my first DE razor. I nice aggressive cutter known as the Slant Bar. Beautifully designed but a little twisted. Then I pursued a lovely 1949 Gillette SuperSpeed with elegant classy looks and a gentle touch. Now I have two younger superspeeds and I am eyeing a Merkur 38C. Can anyone help me ?

    With your AD? Nope, but you might want to post a WTB in the classified section.

    Help you what? :rolleyes:
     
  4. Is this normal behavior ? What is the average number of razors one should expect to sample ? Life seemed so simple before my affair with the DE.

    First of all, lose the concept of "normal". None of us are! :D We all have our own ADs. Some more than others. Mine are brushes $$$$$$$$$$ and Shave Den soaps $. Don't care much about razors. Though I have 6 or 7, I only use one. 'Course, at $110 or so, maybe that qualifies. I dust off the others from time to time - not to use, just to get the dust off. :)

    Either leave now, or just accept the inevitable! :rofl

    Depends on who you ask, around here it's considered normal, but it has been known to raise an eyebrow or two in other gatherings.

    How deep are your pockets? Some swear by one, some have dozens...

    Oh, didn't it just... :p

    Holy Sh** I just did a summary of inventory on what I have. I had no idea. I know the blade count is less and some of the creams and soaps are samples but, OMG! I need help. :rofl

    This can't be right. Can't be. :ashamed001 :o
     
  11. Starting to feel like the member of aa who walked into the neighborhood bar looking for support. I do like the looks of the 38C. Elegant with nice lines and curves !

    You will shortly be beyond help. Check out my Shaving Supplies, that's what I've collected in one year. And there will be some additions shortly.
    There is no help for AD here. :D
     
  16. Thank you to everyone for your help. I believe I have a grip on the issue. Now I must get back to ebay.

    I'll give you the razor count. It's over 25. It gets much worse for soaps and creams. :D
