Just got some more stuff in the mail,
Nothing to exciting, but I was wanting to try out some cheap gear. Some stuff I needed, most I didnt. I ordered four different items, blades, brow razor, and a huge styptic pencil. I haven’t put any of it to use, so stay tuned for further review of the new stuff. This order came from one of my quickly becoming favorite shave stores, West Coast Shaving. They have some of the best prices I can find and ship supper fast. With out further delay here is a group picture of the shave gear.
Lets start like we read the English language, left to right. Never knew you were going to get a lesson on reading did you? That little guy over on the left is the Merkur Moustache and Brow trimmer. Seeing how I dont have a stache, that only leaves my gangly unibrow. It will help to keep things trimmed and separated. Speaking of separating things, I think I will put it to use in the morning. The head is larger on one side and tapers down on the other for fine tuning those extra hairy situations. The head looks like a goofy triangle, here is a close up.
Here is a shot of the little guy that will be serving a big job in my shave den.
On to the next item, or shall I say items. I have for a bit now been wanting to try out different razors. I didnt want to try the bad with the good, so I ordered just the good. This was called the choice pack over at West Coast Shaving. It came with Crystal, Feather, Durby, Astra and Personna blades. I have only used the Durby blades at this point, so I dont think I will use them up till I have tried the rest. Here is a close up of the blades.
Finally the one needed item that started this who shopping expedition. The big ol’ styptic pencil, well not really. Styptic pencils are just for travel for the most part, or just for touch up areas where you are bleeding. This guy is more of an after shave, witch is what I was using the pencil more and more for. But with the small size of the pencil, it gets used up fairly quick like. I had seen this before but didnt realize that it could be used for an after shave till recently. What this is actually made out of is natural crystals, Alum. It stops the burning, helps to heal up your face and stops the bleeding. This guy has its own web site if you want to see it, http://www.razorock.com . Again I got this from West Coast Shaving, and the best price there as well. Here is a pick of the beast.
There you have it for now. Once I get using these products I will be reviewing them as I go in my shaving post’s. Just keep checking in from time to time. Happy Shaving.
