  • Any DE/SE/Straight Razor Shavers on Aria?

    SOTD Houston we (may) have a... Breakthrough!

    - EJ Best Badger
    - Proraso PS
    - Proraso Blue (This is what I did differently, I soaked the brush in hot water, shook off excess, put Proraso blue cream on the brush and FACE lathered it, didn't use a bowl)
    - Wilkinson Swird blade (Oddly it had a Gillette 7 0' Clock black in the sealed packet too?)
    - Muhle R41 Open Comb
    - Proraso PS

    My best shave in weeks! Perhaps a combination of the blade and face lathering? I don't know but I was very impressed

    Ladies! If a man says he'll fix something - he will. He doesn't need reminding about it every six months, OK?

          • How does the Proraso blue smell then? I didn't get on with the red at all.

              The Blue is much lighter. Hard to describe... Clean, light, bit of Aloe Vera in there. Someone suggested lavender but there's none of that in it.

                I joined up on TSR and one of the kind forum members there, The Geordie Shaver, sent me a blade sampler pack from his stash absolutely gratis, what a top bloke! Also got my alum block from the big river.

                  • The straight came.......gawd it's a bit awkward to hold, still not grown a set enough to try it.

                      That's typical of TSR forums. Top quality forum with awesome members.

                                6 blades. 6 days. Never tried any of these before so I got myself some. I'm trying a different blade each day and filming it all. I'll edit it all down together with my findings. Started with the Merkur blades today
