after reading the thread concerning straight razors, and the one about art of shaving products, i've decided that what i want for christmas is a good looking, quality, safety razor. i know it won't be as comfortable as a mach3, but i'm going for looks here. when i was in high school, i got into my shaving routine and bought shaving soap and a cheap shaving brush, but never took the leap of spending fifty bucks on a razor. so now that i've decided i want one (apparently i'm getting old), i'd like to know if anyone has any preferences concerning brands or styles. i know that some are called adjustable. what exactly is adjustable on these? can you make the blade stick out more? or less? any brands of blades that are better than others?
