    @Rob Fisher , did you buy a first aid kit as well ?

    I’m nervous to hear how this Parker is going to go
    In my mind a Parker is a pen, not a blade, lol

    Nice, uncle @Rob Fisher let us know how it goes with the shavette, I really want one because they would be amazing to shape different beard styles with but they also pretty intimidating at the same time, looks scary to use

    Well, I tried it today and I didn't slice my head off and no blood was spilt... however, they are very uncomfortable and hard to use... I think these are made for barbers to use on customers and not so much for a customer to use. I got a quarter of the way and switched back to my safety razor... much much easier to use and be accurate... well for me anyway.

    That's a good looking one... I prefer this method of shaving above all else.

    I will persevere... I will also watch a few YouTube video's because I find it hard to stay accurate with it.

    I heard it is quite difficult to do yourself, maybe give it a few more tries

    Luckily for me my growth only requires weekly maintenance and it’s just a neck and cheekbone clean up. The rest just gets a trim with a machine.

    I think it's what one gets accustomed too Uncle @Rob Fisher , I find the safety Razors much easier to use than a shavette and because of that I actually nick myself more with a safety razor than I do with a shavette.

    I personally dont mind using either though but I do find with a shavette I have much more of a better feel to my shave as I can see where the blade is cutting.

    But i love both shavettes and safety razors.

    I ordered a Mortar and Pestle for the granite bowl... I think it will make an awesome shaving bowl!

    @Rob Fisher - NOW, I am curious , are we tired of the scruffy look and are going ''modern man'' or are we trying to look 19 again ? , without following this thread , I ordered a mug , blades, brush and some vanilla soap , the bushy beard is gone and a goatee remained so now I have to shave daily again and as I know myself , a week or six and that will be gone too [the goatee]. The razors in the cupboard are 2 double edged ones , a steel one from Dad, and a turn the bottom and the double doors flap open one from later in the 20 th centuary , from step dad . Lets see where this is going . :cool:

    Ah, thanks for the nudge @Clouds4Days
    I must admit I have been tempted on a few occasions after looking at some of the posts in this thread.

    But I guess I am quite lucky - my facial hair is not too tough, so my Mach 3 and my soothing Gillette Gel does a great job and gives me a very smooth shave. I have a home office and only go out to meetings a few times a week - so I can easily go for a day or two without shaving and still feel ok. Maybe its because I dont shave every single day that my hairs are not too tough. I don't know.

    But I know my system and it works well for me - I dont have the time now to get involved in another rabbit hole. So for now I will have to watch you guys - but I am enjoying it. One day....

    I will usually just put inside something like a coke can or a bottle.

    There is a cool video were GeoFatBoy actually makes a blade disposer from a old bottle of pills.

    Basically you cut a slot on the bottom side where you chuck in the old blades.

    Had a great shave this evening and used Sorbet Man post shave balm which I received as a gift from my sister last weekend.
    It smells really great.
    If you looking for a post shave that you just wanna grab quickly from a mall this stuffs awesome.
