    I’m considering getting my wife a lady Gillette. Does anyone wife use these? Any thoughts?

    My wife uses a Lady Gillette, after starting off with a Parker 29L. She really likes it, shaves in the shower using a synthetic brush and shave soap. If your wife is willing to try it out, she may find it quite satisfying to use.

    Wife said she would like to try one of mine to see if she likes using safety razor before we buy her one. She told me she would use the razor I got in today, and I told her she needs to try my black Beauty not my 1905 double ring.

    My wife has a black beauty, which was replaced by the Lady Gillette. I forgot about that one. Your wife may not want to give it back to you. Also, the scent of the soap, if she uses a shave soap, can really enhance the experience if she enjoys it.

    Insist on it. I doubt very much if she would like the shave she gets from the double ring. On the other hand, early lady's razors were old types with short handles...

    If nothing else, the black beauty is less likely to get dropped. An important consideration when you are talking about a rare razor.

    If you can talk her into using your soaps/shave creams...

    Use your biggest brush and bowl, lots of real estate to cover compared to the face. Go for a thinner, slicker lather than you would use for your face. If any of your soaps have a "drying effect" on your face, don't offer them to her. She won't appreciate dry feeling legs.

    A black beauty set on 2 or 3 will be equivalent to a Lady Gillette.

    My GF likes using her Lady Starburst Gillette. Another favorite of hers is the Lady Eversharp K1.
