Safety Razors are 100 for $16 on amazon. Each will easily last you more than a week, depending on how often you shave and how tolerant you are to pain. lol. No need to sharpen, just throw out the old one and pop in a new one.
A cheap double edge safety razor will run you <$20. I'd recommend Merkur, there are some cheap chinese options but tbh a good razor will result in less nicks and its a one time purchase.
A good badger hair brush and shaving soap will be <20 each. The brush + soap creates an amazing foam that you'll never get from shaving gel. You'll need the brush to work up the soap. The soap is almost like hard soap, will last you more than a year.

The razor is easy to use. It looks intimidating but I learned from youtube videos, you get the hang of it after a day or two. After a week or so you wont even have to think about it, and itll be one of decisions you make for a small daily routine.

I have been buyin my disposables from Dorco in the states form about 8 years. Its $35CAD shipped for a handle and 10 6-blade cartridges.
Nice thing about Dorco is all their cartridges and handles are interchangeable. Unlike Schick and Gillete,
everytime they come out with a new razor, you need a new handle. I have drawers of old shaving handles.

Dorco came out with a 7 blade cartridge, if I want to try it, I don't have to buy a new handle.

If you're heard of the Buck-a-shave club in the US, this is where they buy their razors.

this will do fine, from the sound of the reviews, its not very aggressive, so less cuts.Plus i like heavy handles , and it comes with a few blades to try it out. I say go for it.
Awesome, thanks. Got it for $20 with minutes left in the lightening deal.

Nice. If you like the shave, id recommend getting a badger hair brush and soap next. The brushes dont play that well with gel creams but with a solid soap, youve got a shaving spa going on!

I've been using a safety razor for a few years now, it's not hard to use but highly recommend learning how to use it. Straight edge razor I've never tried as I've heard a few stories of people ending up in the ER.

For a trial run I'd recommend a shavette
I'm still learning, but on my first attempt (parker sr1) I didn't have too many nicks, just gotta be patient Grinning Face With Smiling Eyes

Good advice.

They probably sell "badger" brushes with rat hair.

BTW, Men Essentials had a Kent badger brush on sale for 50% off bringing the price down to $60 (regular $120). With the discount code, it worked out to $36. I ended up snagging two of them. One for myself, and one for my dad.

Sad that they are closing as it was great being able to go to their store and use the tests products.

I thought the physical store was closed already? So just online/shipping option?
