    I'd like to conduct a little survey: what do you think are the 5 best wet shaving brands today? It can be "hardware" (think razors, brushes) and/or "software" (think creams, soaps, aftershaves). Since that's a pretty wide-open question let me offer some criteria with which to judge: consider time in business, general reputation, the quality of the product line as a whole, customer service, and pricing (in-line with the products).

    I created a google form HERE to collect responses. I'll post a follow-up with the results next week.

    In alphabetical order:

    Edwin Jagger
    Gillette
    Mitchell’s Wool Fat
    Proraso
    Vie-Long

    Ranking these brands from 1 to 5 would be like comparing apples to oranges.

    IMHO, being limited to only five brands is somewhat inaccurate. There are a vast array of wetshaving brands available to consumers nowadays. There are several unique top five brands lists I could have cited, all being equally accurate.

    If we want to collate the results we would also need a "five worst brands" to balance out the results. Some of the "five best" listed above would be on my "five worst" list.
