"I just used the sic isles that came with my kitchen knives. The blade is pretty thin, so they cut right through it. I had to sharpen them afterwards though, but no big deal."

"What did you use to trim the razor? It seems like a solution that will work well for me as well, as I think the main problem is it not being aggressive enough. "

"I'd recommend investing in a straight razor, while there's more risk of cutting yourself, the smoothness is unmatched. If its too pricey or you don't like the hassle of stropping, then invest in a razor blade holder which more often…"

Using a three-piece safety razor

Greetings!I have recently acquired a three-piece safety DE razor with brush from Mühle (Mühle Rytmo Black Fibre), and so far I am loving the experience. I have been wet-shaving every since I started shaving, but using cartridge razors from Gillette and recently Wilkinson Sword, which annoyed my skin and was a tedious experience. After some training, I am close to getting a pretty clean shave, but I feel I am using the safety razor wrong.

Required Reading

There's a similar thread right now but it's bizarre and spammy. So. What, in your opinion, is required reading to be part of the human race? What is absolutely essential, whether it be philosophy, history, religion, or even classic fiction or poetry?See More
