Hmm, possibly. I have to make sure I have the right insert for the Shark blades. I have the red insert which takes the standard DE blades and a black insert. I know the black insert takes the longer proprietary Dovo blades, not sure if the Shark blades work in that. I don't have the green insert, which could be the one I need for the Sharks. I'll check.

I was in a hurry yesterday and only did two passes. One WTG and one ATG. Screwed my day up... The aftershave didn't burn right... The ladies at the bar running their hands on my cheeks noticed the scruff. NEVER AGAIN! I will take the time for all three passes!

Negative. Just saw them last night. The brush felt nice.

I have the brush, a bit floppy when wet, and even after using it for a few weeks it still sheds, I would get one if you were starting out and didn't want to dump a load of cheddar on an expensive brush, or maybe use it for a travel kit.

The best bang for the buck is the Shea Moisture brush. Should be right next to all that VDH stuff in Target. I have two Shea Moisture brushes and they do not shed. Ever. Of course YMMV but mine are rock solid. However I am glad that more stores are getting wetshaving items on the shelves. Gives more visibility to the unknowing public that there is an alternative to $25 an 8 pack for mach 27 blades.

Anybody see that Everready 500 on Ebay right now? Man I am a sucker for green pearl everready's. The green travel brush with holder is rock solid too.

I've seen the Shea brush. It was actually on the next rack. Same money. $1 more or less.
