mikelz777 Posted May 30, 2014 Report Share Posted May 30, 2014 I've been a wet shaver (i.e. brush, cream/soap, double-edged razor) for close to 2 years now. If you are strong willed and stick with one blade, one brush, one razor and one soap or cream, you can indeed save money by going the "old fashioned way" but once you're in, it's hard to stop. You'll want to try different razors and different blades to find a combo that works well for you. Then there's so many soaps and creams you'll want to try both performance and scent-wise. (I just ordered a sampler of 7 shaving soaps of various interesting scents,some with cooling menthol) Wet shaving will also take up more of your time. I could go on and on so if you're interested or curious, I'd be happy to answer any questions. The difference for me between shaving with disposables and wet shaving is that what used to be nuisance and burden to me is now something that I enjoy and actually look forward to. It's kind of a hobby. It's "me time" and pampering yourself a little. I also really like the idea of shaving old-school and keeping the tradition going. My favorite razors are vintage, one from the late 30s and another from the early 60s. I like shaving with a double-edge a lot and don't ever see myself going back to disposables of any kind.
