Brotherhood of the traveling razor.
The first DE razor that I ever purchased was a Merkur 23C "Long Handle Classic" and even though the razor has a great reputation, I've only achieved mediocre results with the razor. It's almost like there's a slight difference in how aggressively one side of the razor shaves vs. the other. Since I get consistently great shaves with my 1974 Gillette Superspeed, I've discontinued using the LHC almost altogether.
Rather than let it waste away in my bathroom cabinet, I've decided to try something novel, and pass it around to my fellow Icrontians.
My expectations are as follows:
- Shave with it for a while and remember your impressions.
- Sanitize it.
- Pass it on to the next Icrontian.
- Whoever has it in June make sure it appears at Expo, preferably with you.
- Everyone who used it and is at Expo meets up to share impressions.
I call this the 'Brotherhood of the traveling razor.'
Post "in" if you're interested in participating. Whoever is in first will receive it from me, freshly cleaned and sanitized with barbicide.
