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

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...
