    Default Good DR for women?

    DH (dear husband) got his razor, now I'm wanting one. lol Any ideas on some good types for women or certain features women tend to like more? Not sure if I can post here versus the women's forum since it's a woman relating question, but all you men here definitely know a lot about it too. Plus there tend to be more of you to talk to then women in general.

    Any help would be great! I also had my eye on the Gillette Blue Lady, but not sure how good these are? I definitely want an older, all metal one.

    I mentioned a 23C Merkur on another of your posts. That's what my wife uses. It has a long handle, but it's still relatively light. I think someone suggested an Edwin Jager DE89 on another post for you as well.

    Definitely! I got them jotted down, and thank you. Just curious if there's any other favorites out there, I'll probably buy a few to find a favorite.

    Kind of off topic too... how is Canada? It seems so wonderful, and I've always wanted to go.

    Well, I like Canada. Grew up in Northern Ontario. Now I'm down just outside of Toronto (About 8-10 hours away from where I used to live.)

    You will most likely get a lot of suggestions for razors. It's all a very personal choice. I have large hands and tended to like larger DE razors. Also, I think it was already mentioned, but get a sample pack. Different blades work with different razors for different people. That may sound funny, but one person will love a certain razor with a certain blade, but it will be too harsh for another person and too mild for the next.

    PS I really did LOL at your avatar.

    Sounds wonderful, I've always been so envious of the forests and wildlife.

    The same pack of blades was the first thing I think recommended. lol Just like you said it's funny too, because as a newbie you'd never think the actual razor blades would make that much of a difference! I think I'll definitely try out a few different ones, I've seen a few different collections browsing the site, and they look really awesome!

    And thanks about the avatar, I was hoping everyone would find it funny, and not think it was rude.

    As one of the other members posted in your introduction to the group, the Gillette "Star" razors were made for ladies. They came in Blue, Pink, and I believe Golden
    You might also consider a sweet "sort of straight" razor like a Rolls Razor, or Henckels Rapide I myself use those, as well as a few of my lady friends, and they are pretty much the equivalent of "a straight on a stick"

    Welcome to the Money Pit!

    I can certainly see how it can become one! But hey, we got to treat ourselves somehow right?

    I'll definitely check out one of those too! Sounds like it'd be a great in between razor!

    Rolls Razors are relatively inexpensive, and easy to come buy. The Henckels are a better shave imho, but a bit harder to come by. If you dont find any pictures of them on here, I can post some up for you.

    What's the best way to find pictures on the forum?

    I just do a search for what ever razor I am looking for. There is usually a thread, or a club where somebody will have posted a picture or 20.
    For instance...
