Having previous discussed “good deal” razors and shaving brushes let’s have a discussion of low-cost shaving lathers. Like the previous “good deal” articles this one is jointly written, this time by Mark (Mantic59) and shave cream/soap reviewer extrodinaire Greg (Palpz). Here are six products that produce good results for less money. They’re not the only ones of course but they are reasonably widely available. If you know of others be sure to leave a comment!
I was browsing through my shave den the other day and thought to myself, “gee, I have a lot of Merkur razors.” I decided to research it a little more thoroughly and as it turns out there are a lot more Merkur razors in production out there–but I’ve never seen the full list in one place! Individual retailers all seem to carry only a portion of the line. And unlike the Edwin Jagger line that basically uses a single head with many handles, Merkur razors come in a variety of forms: two piece, three piece, adjustable, open comb, safety bar, long handle, chrome, gold tone, etc. So here is my (hopefully complete!) list of Merkur razors.
