I really think, if I never buy another shave item short of DE blades, I’ll never use or wear out all the stuff I’ve purchased over the years.
Also, 5-10 soaps is a very good number. You can make a very good rotation and know the soap better (how much water, how to load etc).I had a change of heart when I moved to a smaller house and realised I was just storing stuff for the sake of it.
I have a Karve, a Schick injector, Schick shavette, and a Gillette guard for carry on, that’s it. 4 brushes, and down to 5 soaps as I’ve decided to use them up before buying more.
I’m still passionate about shaving but not passionate about hoarding. Stuff has to be used up or get swapped for something new to come in.
5 works for me. I have Barrister & Mann, Noble Otter, L&L, and a couple of Stirling.Also, 5-10 soaps is a very good number. You can make a very good rotation and know the soap better (how much water, how to load etc).
Grandpa I have your bottom dial Gillette adjustable, please, after you’re gone and also the Gillette Toggle as well.I'm 75. At the beginning of the year I realized I had enough software and blades to last me a good 2 years, and I had a number of unopened soaps and creams. Decided that was nuts so I've stopped purchasing. I don't feel the same about razors for some reason, but I do have 2 sons and 3 grandsons so those can be passed on (although so could the software and blades for that matter).
You get nothing you ungrateful child!Grandpa I have your bottom dial Gillette adjustable, please, after you’re gone and also the Gillette Toggle as well.
Don’t forget to give all the vintage English Wilky and the Spoiler blades, oh oh, Grandpa, don’t forget to give me the Gillette Red Tip English made version, because, I’ve already got the US Red Tip.
Finally, Grandpa don’t forget to give me the Gillette Aristocrat adjustable the Gillette HD500 English made and 85% of your entire estate.
Love you Grandpa you’re a bloody legend.
