Traditional Wet Shaving & More!
While running an errand with my wife today, we passed by a beauty supply store. I went in for a quick look at their barbering supplies. I came across the Diane Double Edge Shaver for $5 USD. It looks similar to the Wilkinson Sword, though less robust.
I won’t test the razor out until next week. This weekend I will be finishing my Cartridge VS DE shaving trial. Hopefully I’ll have time to put together a video about it in September.
I had previously come across the Shaving Factory Double Edge Razor for $8 USD. I’ve shaved with it about 3 times. It wasn’t a terrible shave, but it wasn’t a great shave either. The problem with most budget safety razors is that they lack proper balance (weight). Though it also lacks proper balance, my preferred budget razor is the Lord L6, available for about $15 USD (I previously purchased them for $12). I actually use the L6 as my regular razor and have gifted these to 4 of my friends, last Christmas. The L6 head is rumored to be a copy of the Merkur razors.
Until Next Time, Shave Well!
