I am STILL looking for a local place to buy/ try a straight razor. Money is tight enough as to not want to dump $$$ on even a cheapy one and then not like it. I was hoping the shaving lady was going to be available for EPIC this year. Shave me and show me how to do it.

Hey, welcome to Icrontic. There aren't many OKC folks on this board but I'm sure those of us who are in the area will stop by and check out your shop. I'm pleased to see you sell Taylor of Old Bond Street stuff. I'd like to try their soaps, as well as Trumpers.
I don't know if it's that I replace my blades more often, that I took the time to learn proper wet-shaving methods, or the razor itself, but whatever it is, I wont be going back to a multi-blade any time soon.
I have been using the Neutrogena Skin Clearing Shave Cream along with a Schick Hydro 5.
I know it is nowhere near the lengths some guys will go to for the perfect shave, but it is a huge step up from the can of Barbasol and Bic razors I had been using for years.
I have tried just about every shaving method and product out there over the years, including the ritualistic wet-shave, which I did for almost three years, and I've found the best mix of good shave to convenience for me is Barbasol and a disposable Bic. :P
I've been told that Feather blades are not good for starting out. I can't back that up, though.
