Just picked up a Haryali safety razor set and am ready to join the world of the real shave!

Good evening gentleman, just purchased an inexpensive safety razor along w/a 3 pc.set of shave soap from Walgreens. The razor appears similar to what my granddaddy use to use. I must need some practice, the first shave although effective, ultimately proved pretty painful...lol.

It only gets better Longarm...

Shaved the other night and it went well. Very close indeed!  Also shaved my neck, which I had strayed away from during my 5-blade era because I would always get razorburn and break out, so I would use an electric razor to mitigate.  But no adverse reaction this time using the safety razor!  I recommend one for anyone having similar issues!

Thanks, Niles. Here's the safety razor I bought (it's a Weishi) to go with my grandfather's shaving kit.  He had a bronze 2-blade razor with this kit.  Just opened it yesterday and I've only ventured as far as shaving my cheeks so far. Very different from the 5-blade Gillette I'd been using--nicked myself a few times--but it feels like a much closer shave!

Congrats on your decison to try a safety razor. Let us know how it goes.

Hello gents, I just bought my first safety razor from Amazon.  Five-blade razors give me razorburn plus I'm prone to ingrown hairs, so I hope it works out for me.  Also looking forward to the lower cost of razor replacement. 

Cheers,

Longarm

Art, if you have a CVS near you, you should be able to at least find Wilkinson Sword blades in the shave aisle.

I'd use my old school safety razor if I could find blades other than on the net

I have a friend who uses "Dollar Shave Club" for his head and face.  He raves about the quality of shave that he gets.

I use a DE on my face and love it.
