But then another strange phenomenon occurs and you want to try soaps and different creams, then the aftershaves, then the razors and brushes. Then you'll get ballsy and try a straightedge. It's a never ending cycle. I had to promise my wife and myself not to buy anything else until I work my way trough the surplus of creams and aftershaves I have now.
Ha, I have no interesting in trying a straightedge. I have tried a few different blades and like the feathers the best. Was just using that as an example of what you could buy, you could get cheaper and save more money if that is your thing.
