I know right
Once you get used to it, it gets about as quick as a regular razer, you just need to be reminded that an exposed blade is there, and to keep the angle....and of course to never swipe the handle, only drag it(you swipe the handle..you cut your face up)
How much did you pay for it?
Most recommend lathers(lather, lather bowl, lather brush) and sample blade sets to personalize everything to your face.
I didn't do that lol
But if the blade is too sharp, or too dull, or your face gets red and a bit irritated afterwards, a new blade or lather would work well for you.
Probably, his parents told him he can spend his military allowance on these
And it is quite difficult to obtain Mikoto figures as well
And regarding DE, I am using a Feather Popular
23SGD (about 18USD) for it
Yes, a cheap razor and a lot of plastic but I like the TTO (though it may wear out) and I like the build quality (always felt Made In Japan stuff is good)
For brush currently using an Omega synthetic brush, hope to upgrade to a badger or boar brush if I am happy with DE shaving in long run
For cream using some Indian cream of some brand as a temporary solution till I can find the brand of cream I am looking for (which I was unable to find today)
