    All us poor saps who were tired of paying out the nose for carts. I might have spent $150 for this razor, but I'm only paying 9 cents per blade. Lol

    My advice, for what it`s worth, is to buy middle of the road products. Try a few different combinations until you find what you need(not want). There is one problem with this method.... there`s a good chance that you`ll get hooked on the procedure, as I did, and go overboard on shiny gadgets. So stay focused on what you really need and enjoy wet shaving. There are a lot of decent shaving accessories at your local shops that aren`t expensive.

    Happy Shaving and God Bless

    Hmm, lets see. The thing i hate about wet shaving I would have to go with is probably inconsistency. Most of the time I can get a good shave, but I can also have bad shave days where my technique can be way way off where I end up having irritations, or a little bit of stubble. Another would be if I'm sporting a goatee or outlined beard that I accidentally shave too much off the edges. Once you take off too much, it's kinda hard to patch it up and make it look good again.

    Ahh.. But that's why the goatee saver was invented.

    The thing I hate is with all the razors, brushes, soaps and all I can see the sink top anymore.

    I hate that I quit wet shaving and tried the latest, greatest razors on the market. Then I awoke from stupidity and started DE shaving again.

    I agree with the "wish I was introduced sooner" complaint lol. Definitely could have picked up some great razors in Asia.

    Definitely that I didn't start sooner and that I have missed out on trying and collecting different soaps and razors from all over the world. Definitely on my next deployment I will be procuring many things.

    I enjoy the whole DE shaving process and wish I had started much earlier. But I really wish it took a little less time. This morning I spent over 5 minutes on touch up alone. I would probably have spent more except work called and woke up my wife. :sad023:

    Here's what I hate. It started with the wet shaving and how good my face felt when I was done due to both the razor and the preshaves, soaps and aftershaves. This lead to buying natural soap, a scrunchie and a natural back brush for the shower. I used to shower with whatever was on sale, drag a cart across my face and tear it up and be out of the bathroom in 10 minutes max. Now I wet myself in the shower (okay people, get your heads out of the gutter, I mean with water), lather up the scrunchie and back brush, turn the water off, lather up my body, rinse (and I actually use the shower head with the hose now to get those hard to rinse areas), use the natural soap on my head instead of the buck ninety nine a gallon shampoo. Then I towel dry, wet my face with the hot water that my shave bowl and brush are soaking in, put on some pre-shave, do a nice 2 or 3 pass shave with touchups, cold rinse, apply balm and splash aftershave, put on deoderant -, clean everything up and apply cologne. Somewhere in all this, occasionally the brain will say "Brian, you have become such a girly man" because that is how I was raised to think. That thought is what I hate about wet shaving.

    The cleanup after Shaving. When I use an electric there's no cleanup other than rinsing out my Shaver.
