I don't know... Maybe visions of selling women's fat a**es back to them? That would actually be kinda fun.

Was a joke referencing the scenes of them rendering down the post cosmetic procedure biological "tallow" for the making of soap.

I have been DE shaving for a few months now and absolutely love it, I have a 1930s era closed comb Gillette tech fatboy razor, and a 1930s era open comb Gillette razor, I have been using shark blades with great success.

As for soaps, I use half of an almond size dollop of CO Bigelow tube shave cream with the cheapie Van Der Hagen soap puck. I lather in a rice bowl I picked up at my local market. So far I have 3 brushes, one Van Der Hagen boar hair brush, one Ωmega boar hair brush and one Ωmega badger hair brush.

As for an aftershave splash, I use the T.N Dickenson's Witch Hazel with a few drops of Sandalwood essential oil to add some fragrance to it.

Most of my early issues stemmed from not getting the lather built up enough to provide adequate protection and with getting the pressure and blade angle correct.

Anyone have pics of their vintage or current model DE razors?
Here is my Gillette Tech fatboy.

That is actually exactly what I used yesterday and I hated it. I have mixed the CO Bigelow with some the "Real Shaving Company" cream and liked that. It helped to cut down on all the menthol in the CO.

I have a Ball End Tech razor. I really don't care for it too much because it is tiny so I have been looking for something else lately.

I did it for years. You'd be surprised how quickly your fingers become your eyes.

Have you guys checked out badgerandblade.com? Great forum, lots of useful information over there.

I have a 1969 Gilette Super adjustable. I told my Grandfather I was interested in "wet" shaving and he pulls out 2 adjustables and a 3 piece Fatboy. I had a feeling he would have one, so he told me to take all of them, I just took the Super Adjustable.
