    At this point I wish I had done a bit with a DE so I was not walking blind getting her started.
    It is just Whisker Whacking

    All this DE talk I have to fight the urge. I love straights so much I wish I had to shave twice a day. But I'm only human and can only resist so long before I get a DE

    I love my straights as well, but I like the DE for those time when I don't have time for a full 3 pass shave or don't need a BBS shave and want to cut down the whiskers. They also will give you a great 3 pass shave as well.

    @pfries I just use the persona from Walmart, but there are better blades out there. SRD has a great selection. I have used the Gillette 7 o'clock and they are fantastic. The persona's I only get 2 full shaves out of them myself but they get the job done pretty well.
