    Yesterday, I finally tried out the safety razor. I did 2 passes and only nick was the last stroke on my neck.

    I get the hype, the shave is SO unbelievably close. Yes it's time consuming, but you have to treat yourself right sometimes.

They are very beneficial to skin and wallet. 100 blades, good for 3-5 shaves each, can cost around $15. When compared with cartridges, it's a no-brainer. Less convenient than cartridges, however, and can often lead to acquisition disorders involving hardware and/or soaps and creams.
    How long did it take you to become skilled at the old school safety razors?

    It took me at least 6 months to get as fast and as efficient as I was with my fusion. Shaving every day helped.

    I'm going to give the unpopular opinion that cheap safety DE razors aren't significantly worse than the big names. Apparently the cheap Baili TTO on Amazon is the same as the Viking Chieftain according to some folks.

    I've been wet shaving for about 15 years and have owned numerous Merkers and Muhles along with a handful of cheaper brands. After I found the right blade for me, the biggest factor in my shaving enjoyment and comfort was probably the blade gap and holding the razor correctly and not using too much pressure, more than the razor being made of a certain material or having a long handle. I haven't owned any of the true classic ones that predate my birth, and some people swear by those more than all modern razors.

    I'm also a huge fan of Cremo, but a boar brush and a puck are fine too. I never felt the need to go badger after I perfected my lather technique.
