Well, I admit, I am still very curios to try a straight razor . I have used a large number of razors, from De, gem, injector, mini hair shaper till long Dovo blades. I have two shavettes. Yet, I haven't used a straight razor and I would love to try a shave ready one. My goal is to try and give it back, sort of being in a pass around and pay the shipping costs. I live in the Balkan region. I can send one of my razors as sort of loan collateral. I thought to buy a razor and sell it back, but in my understanding from the forums, the razors are not shave ready when sold. Is there a way to accomplish it? I just want to know if straight razors do shave that well by making people buying a lot of wetstones , strops and more razors. Glad to receive some help.
