    Mitchell's Wool Fat Shaving Soap
    Kent BK4
    Merkur Slant Bar
    Merkur Blade
    Shavex Alum
    Hydrolat Unscented A/S Conditioner

    First time I ever got a decent shave with a Slant Bar, and with a Merkur blade no less. I used to hate the Slant Bar, I never understood what all the fuss was about. I didn't find the razor particularly harsh, just totally useless, couldn't get it to shave worth a damn no matter what I tried. As much as I hated the Slant, I hate Merkur blades evenmore. Today I picked it up on a whim and mistakenly put a Merkur blade in and I got the best DE shave I ever had. I won't be giving up on the straights (no reason to:D ) but it's nice to have a decent alternative if I'm in a hurry.

    Bar Soap: Dr. Bronner's Unscented Mild Castille Soap
    Mama Bear Rosemary Mint Daily Shampoo
    Conditioner: Burt's Bees Super Shiny Grapefruit & Sugar Beet Conditioner
    Facial Wash: Nancy Boy Mild Facial Wash
    Body Lotion: Burt's Bees Soothingly Sensitive Aloe & Buttermilk Lotion
    Deodorant: Burt's Bees Herbal Deodorant
    Merkur Hefty Classic Slant Bar Safety Razor
    Shaving Blades:
    Derby Double Edged Razor Blades
    Shaving Brush:
    Kent BK4 Small Ivory Silver Tip Badger Shaving Brush
    Shaving Bowl:
    Petco 4" Stainless Steel Pet Water Bowl
    Shaving Cream:
    eShave Cucumber Shave Cream (As a pre-lather)
    Shaving Soap:
    Ogallala Bay Rum, Sage & Cedar Shave Soap
    WTG/45XTG/45XTG Cleanup
    Post Shave
    Styptic: Alum Block
    Ogallala Bay Rum Aftershave

    Result: 4.0/5.0 Could have been better. I had to play around too much with the soap sto lather where I wanted it. Need to use just damp brush and lather it on your face. Forget the bowl and and only add water to slick it up. Forget about lather. It's not happening. Smells really nice though and gave great glide with two day old beard and the Derby Blade on day 4 maybe 5. Unheard of for me to use a blade that long.

    A very close shave, but the Lord blade gave me some irritation today so 4 days is my maximum with this blade.

    Ya, 3 days for me. I dodged a bullet this morning. Should have used the day four blade to shave my armpits. :D

    :confused: Huh? Why?
  18. qhsdoitall

    qhsdoitall Wilbur

    Because, blades usually are only good for 3 days with me and every two weeks I use a day 4 blade to shave my armpits. Heat + sweat = stink. The less hair to trap bacteria, the less stink and the more effective my herbal deodorant or Crystal works. Started it when I was 17 at Wonderbread.

    No, I get that. But a blade you wouldn't use on your face is ok for your underarms? No thank you. Ouch!

    Seems to work for me for some reason. Haven't had a razor burn yet. Probably because, I do it in the shower with lots a hot water. Works a lot better than the twin cartridge I used to use. Clogged too much.
