7/21 for my boy. I think I'll drop Larry an email and go from there.

I need to work on my chin with a straight... I know its the hardest spot for me to get close with a DE. Its just really coarse and thick and like 500 grit sandpaper all the time. DE's have done the best with it so far.

and whippeddog stuff is legit. I got a strop and soap samples through him. Very well at keeping you in the loop on the order and stuff.

He sent me some info today and I'm teetering on the fence about the straight. Heard estimates of a month to 100 shaves before being good at it. I'll probably take the leap, just want to read/watch more before I attempt to remove just stubble from my face.

I gave my DE a workout tonight. Don't worry, the beard came through unscathed.

I got tired of paying a ton for a bad shave with 16-blade Gillette Mach 200 Turbo Megashave systems, and found DE wet shaving. I enjoy the Merkur 180 razor, Astra Superior Stainless blades, and Taylor of Old Bond Street Jermyn Street shaving cream combination. Still amazed at the ability to pick up nearly a year's worth of great blades for $13.

Plus the sound the blade makes while cutting is very reassuring.

I'm not very good with the straight yet... I end up doing a ATG pass with my fatboy to finish up. Albeit a very smooth ATG pass.

How'd that work out for you? I think I have liked single edged razors for shaping beards the best.
