Although this might seem condescending, it is an honest question. I see so many people posting pictures/videos or writing about the countless number of razors, brushes, soaps, creams, aftershaves etc. they have; sometimes their possessions are over the roof like Nick here Personally, I can understand if a person has two or three of each item. A straight razor for weekends, a safety razor for short on time and a cartridge razor for extremely short on time. Two brushes: one animal hair and one synthetic if you forget to soak your animal hair brush. Maybe 3 brushes because badger hair differs from boar hair. By "each item", I do not mean multiple articles of the same thing (I have around 5 bottles of Nivea Sensitive After Shave Balm which I love and 7 packs of blades so I don't have to run to the store to buy them). What is the use of owning a Merkur, a Muhle, an Edwin Jager, a RazoRock razor along with soaps to last 3 lifetimes and more than 5 brushes? I honestly want to know your point of view, not that I'm ever likely to establish a shave den.
