Nice. I have too many blades to try Shark, Gillete, Feather, Derby, etc...

My fear is that I find myself most comfortable with that one obscure blade made in the depths of Bangladesh by Midget Hindu Monks that worship an Obese Platypus.

The Sharks are manufactured (I read) in Egypt, out of steel made in Sweden. Welcome to the one-world economy!

In the sampler I got, the majority of the blades are either Russian or Egyptian.

Funny how there is only one brand of blade in there from a country that actually produces steel from raw material, Feather.

I hear they are manufacturered from reclaimed amercian soda Kegs.

Nice. Cuts in more ways than one.

So I have been trying the EVOO in my shave bowl for several days now.

My face feels like it is better hydrated, but not oily, I am getting a much closer shave on my neck, and no breakout like a teen.

So far so good!!

Yup. Same here. Odd huh. So simple and organic (in a way). I find the EVOO is better than Glycerin. Even went out and purpose bought a small bottle of EVOO to keep with my shave kit.

EVOO and shaving soap? Just put a drop or two in the mug?

I keep forgetting to try this. I can't see any reason though why just the cheap cold pressed wouldn't work.

Yes. Start with a drop or two and add as needed to get the feeling you want until it becomes uinrealistic.

For me, it's about 1/4 tsp.
