Been the full route, Electric, to double edged razors, to injectable to single bladed throwaways, shaving cream, mug and soap and finally wound up with hot water that's all.

I did enjoy a mug and soap the best while it lasted but I mentioned that to a barber and he said it all comes down to hot water anyway.

My preference is a single bladed disposable and hot water and now I have a beard as well. Life gets less and less complicated for me.

I do all my own stunts

No shaving here either. Just a quick trim with scizzors every so often.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

Straight Razor and sharpen before every use with leather strap I have been shaving this way for 30 years , DW buys hand soap foam dispenser now ,used to use bar soap for foam .

This method trains you to have a steady hand.

If I used a straight razor it would be redrum!

Currently I use the Gillette 5 blade razor, but I think I got a closer shave using the 3 blade razors. Just waiting to use up the 5 blades to switch back. Don't use soaps or foam.

Shaving ????

Been using mug and brush for 50 years, Use Williams soap from a drug store. Also use Bic disposable razors, One per week.

As far as which mug and brush, well I use one until it brakes or the bristles fall out, Then I reach for another one from the cabinet.

Been collecting them for years. Best shave in the world with a mug and brush!!!!

Have a great day, I know I will.!!!

For those if you using a mug & brush, can you recommend a brush? Mine lose their hair or are too soft. I've been using a mug for a few years and finally settled on Aramis shave soap. Now if I can only find a brush I like.

Any good Ever Ready brush. Check E bay, that's where I got most of mine.

I've had electrics for many years. Currently, use a Braun wet/dry and Barbasol canned foam twice a week wet, dry-shave with lubricant (Rite-Aid's finest!) the other days.

The house that I rented when in college was so old that it was built before indoor plumbing. A small closet had been retro-fitted to be a bathroom, the tiny sink was actually in the shower. I started shaving in the shower then and haven't stopped. DW likes that there's no mess in my sink. However, on more than one occasion I showed up to work and was told that I had forgotten a side.

I like to mix it up. Tools: Shave in shower with cheap two blade disposable and maybe once a month my Dads old Rolls razor - actually learned how to shave with the Rolls. Norelco electric maybe once a week. Best of all - no shave at all till DW gets on my case.
Soap: Cheap cans, shave cake soap and brush - without mug is used for the lightweight travel situations like ship cruise.

I think I follow a fairly common standard for those of us who are unskilled
Gillette Mach 3 (blue even!), hot water, Barbasol shaving cream with lanolin (BTW they're also good for conditioning hockey equipment so it serves more than one purpose) and Old Spice original aftershave, or Musk aftershave.
