Gentlemen, This seems to be a popular thread on many of the wet-shaving forums, and I thought it would be nice to do this here as well. Here's how it works: just reply to this thread posting the hardware(razor, blade, and brush) and software (Soap/cream, aftershave) that you used for that day's shave. This would be a good way for those new to the idea of "Shaving like your Grandpa" to see what products are out there and a good encouragement for the rest of us!

Nice. I'm saving up for the day when I can truly shave like a man. Right now money's tight so I can not go out and splurge on myself right now. Basic needs and kids come first but when I do here is what I've got lined up.

Meh. Proglide is good if you are going to use a cartridge razor. They have definitely made improvements on it since the last Fusion. But I definitely get better shaves with my safety razors. And much smoother shaves too. The 34c is quite nice, gets really really close, but also shows my bad technique, esp around the bottom of my neck and adams apple. I like it though! Normally I shave with a Fatboy or Superspeed.
