  • Old style shaving

    Is there anyone else here who shaves with old style shaving equipment? Straights, double edge Gillettes, injectors, soap, mug and brush?

    Everyone who has not believed the Gospel of grace is not saved, no matter what else they believe or do.
    By that measure, how many professing Christians are on their way to the Lake of Fire?

      Satisfactory results? Redness, nicks, irritation? That's why I quit can o'foam and Schick Xtreme 3 about five years ago and haven't looked back.

        There's enough barbershops in my area where I can occasionally treat myself to an old school straight razor shave. It feels marvelous...and I'd never in a thousand years try to do it myself.

          Straights are very much a learned skill and you can't let your mind wander while using them. I can use them, but it's the upkeep on straights you have to stay on top of that turns me off.

          With the right tools and a bit of practice (that's the key), DE shaving is just as effective and far cheaper in the long run than almost any brand of cartridge razor on the market.

            I switched to the Sensor Excel when it came out. Of course I reused the Sensor after a few times to confirm it was better. Other than that, no 3, 4, or 5 razors. I am using standard Barbasol shaving cream. I used Edge Gel for tough beards when they sold it.

                During my senior year at high school, one of the guys in my class came to school with a REALLY horrible rash on the bottom of his face.

                Come to find out, he decided to use Nair rather than shaving.

                  I never get rash or bumps etc. because I use cold water. I heard warm water causes the bumps. No nicks either with Quattro

                    My wife uses the Fusion Proglide. It does give a perfect shave even on a week's worth of beard (mine, not hers) but is way too expensive for me. She won't touch the Lady Gillette I bought for her. Meh, to each their own.

                      I know guys who swear by cold. I use hot. I think it more has to do with prep and the kind of soap or cream one uses, but it's all opinion because all skin and beards vary.

                          Does Gillette still make Excel carts? They still make the ancient Trac II and Atra so I guess they would, but I've never seen them under the Gillette name, only generics.
