    I use a MERKUR Futur with Feather razor blades. I have thick hair and extremely sensitive skin. Multiple blade razors are painful for me.

    My favorite creams are Billy Jealously or Pacific Shaving Company. After shave I usually use an alum block and then Billy Jealously shaved ice. Face oil, even preshave oil, is also really good to use as aftershave.

    I love the old school Mitchell's Wool Fat shaving soap and keep going back to it for my cream. I've used Anthony for Men aftershave lotion for about fifteen years now.

    I use whatever Gillette blade and razor is on offer, they're all very similar but I like the 'powered' ones a bit better. I have stacks of Proraso shaving foam, and am on my last Kiehls after shave balm (they stopped making it a few years ago, but I stocked up).

    Not sure what logic exactly can refute DE razors all that easily? The cost savings alone compared to cartridges are profound.

    I use a merkur w/ Personna blue blades. A box of 100 can last for well over a year depending how often you shave and is maybe...$15.

    I use (now discontinued unfortunately) Penhaligons Sartorial shave soap and aftershave which I love. My supply will be up soon and will probably switch to a Truefit and Hill soap.
