I switched to a DE about 2 years ago, been shaving with soap and a badger brush for about 20 years, used caned goo a bit in college.

Currently using a Merkur Slant, red personnas and a wee scott, or a sta-fast that I put a new super badger head in.

All of my razors are 1945 or earlier, but I think I need to get a newer merkur sant to play with, might even buy new on this one!

I just got a gilette adjustable off ebay last night for $17. Probably paid too much but I really wanted to try and adjustable. Looking to get an old brush that I can restore too.

I tried out a feather the other day. Damn those things are awesome. I am about to split 100 of them with a friend.

I do the same thing when ordering - add in a book, or a t-shirt, or some little item we need to get over the $25 free-shipping line.
Gotta lova Amazon Prime.

what kind of adjustable is it? $17 doesn't seem bad to me. i've actually got a few NOS badger brushes that i stockpiled a while ago if you are interested in one, i could probably sell you one for like $20 if you don't want to go the restoration route. IIRC, they are silvertip, but i'll have to dig them out and double check.

The listing wasn't very detailed and I am not that great at identification yet. I will figure out the year its from when I get it though.

Thanks for the offer on the brush. I am tracking a couple on ebay so if that falls through I might take you up on that. More than likely though if I can't get something really cheap on ebay I will just replace the knot in the POS one I have now.

Yeah, I meant to add that.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/300598653972...84.m1423.l2649

I know the black tip ones are newer and it looks like it is in really good shape.

I'm looking forward to knowing how you like the adjustable you picked up. I've been looking for one under twenty t try out.

I'm finding I like my Merkur 1904 over my Gem Klog Pruf. The SE GEM is just too aggressive for me. I also don't like packing up my things as I travel from my house to my work apartment and back. I've doubled up on nearly everything to try and alleviate that but I need to find another workable razor, the GEM doesn't work Like I was hoping it would.

Also finding out shaving every other day keeps the irritation down and no one really seems to notice if I don't shave a day even though it kind of drives me crazy with my neck hairs rubbing on my jacket collar all day.

I have found that the Gillette Tech is a very forgiving razor, it is recommended as a first DE by many because it isnt very agressive, of all the razors I have and use I keep going to my techs for a smoothe shave with no irritation.
