It's been just over 22 months since I last shaved. I remember exactly the day because you never forget the first time you shave with a straight razor. It was the closest shave I've ever had and the fewest nicks. Before that shave, when I shaved somewhat regularly I would use a double edged safety razor. Either way it's wet shave only for me if I ever take up the art again.
I would like to recommend Col. Conk's shave soap. Bay Rum is a pleasant scent.
