    Hahaa - am glad to be here, since deciding to swing to DE it's quickly becoming a more frequently introduced topic in circles - and very interesting 'takes' on it alone as well as the cold H2O approach...just getting my bearings now but sold for the duration. Want to try and explore without creating yet another money pit - this forum is a fantastic tool and outlet. Great attitudes seem to flow from the DE crew here...love it...and thanks!

    Good luck not creating another money pit, it can be done but you must have a strong will.

    So last shave with the above the tie razor for a little bit, as today I should be receiving the wolfman razor, King cobra and the mongoose thanks to a wonderful friend of mine on this forum. He looked out for me and found a wolfman at a very good price and allowed me to purchase his king cobra while lending me his mongoose. I can not be more thankful.

    Tonight's shave was amazing, the wolfman lives up to it's reputation. Completely smooth in every way possible but very efficient without being too aggressive.

    Really digging the cold water shave (or in my case ice water shave). Scrubbed face with Clarisonic, did cold compress on face after shower, applied preshave oil, installed new blade(Astra sp) into slim set to 4 and lathered up. Great shave. No irritation at all on neck. This is only my 3rd de shave. I think I like the Astra more than the voskhod. Shave seems a lot closer.

    Question though, how do you all get those hairs under the nose.

    This time I had to try the cobra. Very close shave and my first time using feather blades. But the angle of this thing takes some getting used to.

    Some of my DE razors tend to leave some stubble under my nares. I find that the angle of attack is usually the limiting factor. If a particular razor is slacking in this area, my solution has become to keep a Schick G close at hand for some final touch up in this area.

    You can also try pulling your nose up and away from the side your shaving with your non-razor hand, while tightening your lip over the teeth with your mouth open to help pull the corners of your lip down with to gain a bit more access. Unfortunately, this approach does nothing to encourage RAD.

    Second round with the king cobra and it's definitely a close shave. Less blood this time and very clean shave.

    Good morning friends. Wonderful menthol Monday shave today with my lovely Stirling Glacial Mita soap. [​IMG] Three passes with the R41 dolphin smooth, easy as pie. I decided to use pre shave oil today again, I'm undecided, further experimentation is needed. [​IMG] Have a great day! [​IMG]
