Wet Shaving

Good Afternoon (at least it is here)
This really has nothing to do with RVing.
I have several questions.
How many of you use a Shaving Brush, and Mug and a Razor?
What type of Shaving Soap or Shaving Cream?
Do you use Double Edge Safety Razors or disposable Razors?
Do you use a Single Edge Razor Injector type or a disposable?
Do you use a Straight Edge Razor & Strop set up.
If so how often do you Strop your Razor?
Do you use a Pre-Shave product?

I like Van der Hagen Shaving soap and I use a 100% Badger Brush.

I use mug and brush, Frankly I do not know the brand of soap though, I think the last cake I got was from my barber who handed it to me unwrapped.

The razor is a Mach-3.. 3 blades and a vibrator to make them more effective... Very nice shave.

have used the mug for about 40 years, Had to replace the bursh a few times, Assorted brands of soap. Assorted razors but the Mug was a Williams (Soap brand) promotional item back in the 1970's as I recall.

My dad.. Also used Mug and brush.. I gave them to him for Christmas and he liked them better than shaving cream.

His was a Fuller "Ship" mug and brush set.. There is only one thing wrong with Fuller Brushes... I use a Fuller hair brush.. It too is over 40 years old.. And it's a half football shaped and painted "Boy's Brush".. I've used it all these years, Fits my hand perfectly and no sign of wearing out.

That's the problem, They never wear out (or if they do (my fuller bath brush did) .. Well takes a long, long time).
Home is where I park it!

I use a 5 blade vibrator type razor and heated gel. I like the feel of a razor shave - seems to me to be a much "cleaner" feel. I also shave the center of my head for a reverse Mohawk (and to shave off those prickly little hairs us bald guys get).

I use a mug and a brush, Col Cronk soap and a double edge razor. The Mug says "Burma Shave" on it. My Original mug was broken by a niece who was visiting us. When traveling by Air, I use, "Barbersol" foam and a quadratrac razor.

I use the cheapest menthol shave cream from WalMart, and the cheapest disposable, double blade razors. I can get up to 9 days on each razor. DW seems happy.

No gel or shave cream, just a Quattro blade after a shower.

I haven't shaved completely for 32 years. Don't even know what I look like anymore. But, I do shave my upper cheeks and neck. I only need to shave these areas about once a week. For that I use a really cheap disposable razor and some cheap shave cream in a can. I can use the razor for months before I have to throw it away. Only after I have to push so hard that is hurts do I realize it's time for a new one. I've had the cans of shaving cream can get so old that they rust threw and explode in the medicine cabinet. There is a reason my screen name is Caveman CBB you know.

Used a straight edge '68-'69 when in Vietnam. Sometimes it was necessary to "time your strokes." Used the strop about once a week.

Now-a-days it is a Schick with 5 blades. Smooth, smooth, smooth.

I use a mug & a brush just like my grand daddy used to do. The soap that I use are the small pieces of soap from the shower. Everytime I see one that is getting small I add it to my shaving mug and replace it with a new bar. As far as razor blades go, we have a Warehouse store here in Ma. called BJ's. It is kind of like Sams Club. Anyway, I use their disposable razor blades. They are made quite well and I can go weeks using the same blade! No longer do I purchase the more expensive Mach 3 blades. THe way that I can maximize my blade usage is with my morning ritual. That is, I first fill my shaving mug with hot water and then apply the hot sudsy foam to my face. Then, while it sits on my face softening my bristles, I go ahead and brush my teeth. Just that added delay softens the nubs on my face just enough where it is easily shaved with those razor blades.

I don't need no stinkin' mirror in the shower when I shave !
I KNOW where my face is

but I do use a gel shaving cream and a regular razor IN the shower...
shampoo hair, rinse, shampoo again, and leave it on while I shave, then rinse

want to know how I do the rest of me ?!?
