Default Re: Life on a Razor Edge...Shaving the retro way

Even Im using Bombay Shaving Kit for the last three months. Got one for my Dad as well. It's packaged so well that initially he was just staring at the box and not using. They even engrave your initials on the razor, thereby personalising it! I havent had any nicks or cuts till now, but the Merkur does give a closer shave. The Feather razor is nicely weighted and is good, but need one extra swipe.

I use a Shavette, primary reason why I have not moved to a SR is, I do not have the skill to hone it Shave Sharpness, it is a bit of an art.

Gold Dollar SR are good one to start, unless you are willing to spend some $$, Solingen or other ones are available, just make sure you order a "Shave Ready"Blade.

Thanks for the revert motorpsycho.

Sorry I meant the shavette when I said straight razor. Subsequent readings made me realize that Shavette is what I am looking for as of now. Not yet ready for the full razor. Any good brands or the unbranded ones on Amazon good enough.

What did you migrate from?

There are no big brands, I have used Lalwani and Kashish from Durga enterprises and currently I have another brand, I am unable to recall the name, I purchased 3 of them for 50 Rs each, will post pics tomorrow.
Do not buy from Amazon, they are a rip off, look for the local barber supply in your city, 50 to 60 rs you will get a very good one.

I experimented with DE and ready shaver cartridge type, during the same time, I found a shavette at my house and started trying it, used to use it in conjunction with Cartridge type, got cut a few times, but it will never be a deep one due to the design.
