I generally use a Wahl electric (I have several of them). Wahl is about as old school as you can get----the choice of barbers for clippers and the motors on their shavers are great. But I do want a very close shave from time to time and use disposables and shave cream----and my favorite is the single blade Bic Metal. They are basic and really good.

I bought an Edwin Jagger DE89Lbl, Badger brush and Proraso Green in April and have not looked back. I enjoy barber shop shaves, but am too chicken to buy an actual straight razor for myself, but the safety razor is the next best thing. It does take longer, i.e., 2-3 passes. I keep a Braun electric for those mornings I have to run out the door. I think you will be pleased with the money you save, but don't rush it.

I'm partial to Imperial Barber products if you're looking for a shaving cream. Pedro, the founder, is an incredible barber, and their products are pretty top notch. Bonus: based in LA. I used to go to his shop in long Beach before I moved to NY.

Whatever I use, I hope I can use my Merkur in the shower. I like the steam.

Jeff, be prepared to dial 911 if you use a Feather razor and checkout www.westcoastshaving.com

Those Feather razors are that sharp? Now I'm scared. Not very manly of me.

Feather razors are sharp as hell and considered the best of the breed...try Persona brand as a starting point. I no longer wet shave, there are forums on wet shaving that you'll find educational
