Talking to me about the TOBS? I'll give it a shot. I don't think you're going to be getting my Sandalwood.

The sandalwood was very nice. Eaton College is up later this morning.

Haven't looked at all the posts in this thread, but straight is the way to go. I have a new Dovo PrimaKlang and a local made razor(about one hundred years old). Both shave better than any razor I've ever bought as a cartraige. The oldie has a nick in it and still shaves like a pro. By the way I have a old perfect horse leather strop. Not sure if it works better than a new strop, but I love the way it hones for me. As for soap, I use Colonel Conk. My wide likes the sandalwood. .

Don't let her see you refer to her as your "wide."

When I get the time I will pick up the straight again. I just don't have the time. I have the patience to do it right, but that makes me late!!

Gentlemen, I am sorry to admit that I only made it ~10 pages into the thread before jumping here to the end. What's a safe/sound first razor/blade combo for a first time safety razor user? I'm OK with a cheaper razor, but I don't want to "outgrow" it too quickly. Blades: I'm completely lost. I'm sure there are many answers to my question -- I'm just looking for a starting point! Thanks much!

Edit: I'm asking for a DE recommendation. I'm not sure if I communicated that correctly or not...
