Edwin Jagger offers a short handled razor in four different configurations. I opted for the Ebony model which comes with a rubberized handle and chromed capped accents.

In addition, the price is very agreeable. $22.52. Although, since my purchase, the price appears to have increased by a couple of bucks.

These Dorco razor blades cost just over 7 bucks for 100! A real bargain that amounts to giving you shaves for just pennies a day!

They come in a tray-box in packages of ten and individually wrapped. They’ll fit any standard safety razor.

I’ll give them a good test drive and post a full review later.

However, for only 7 dollars and free two-day shipping with Prime, it’s not too much of a gamble.

Razors and blades are very subjective. Your mileage may vary.

I found the V3 razor head from Maggard Razors to be VERY aggressive. It’s not a razor I would use every day.

In my test drive, I used it three days in a row and, on the third day, I notice some skin irritation on my face and neck.

Is it close? Yes. Is it too close for some? Yes.

There’s only one way to find out and that’s simply to buy one and give it a go.

At $6.95, it’s a purchase any wet shaver can justify.

For many cartoonists, part of the process is the search to find the ultimate pencil or pen.  Cartoonists draw with, and try, many different kinds of drawing instruments.  With each new acquisition, we have hope that it will breath new life into our artwork.  Or, perhaps, help us to work faster with better results.

So it is with the traditional wet shave.  Many wet shavers enjoy the process so much, they invest in new razors, brushes, soaps, and creams in looking for the ultimate shave.  And since, returning to wet shaving, I’ve dabbled a bit in giving various razors, brushes, etc. a test drive.  Some razors are mild, some aggressive, and still others prove to be somewhere in-between.  But with each new piece of gear, the shave improves, something new is learned,  and the process is refined.

Luckily, along with Amazon.com, there are lots of online retailers who specialize in wet shaving gear.  So, I went online and finally ordered from Maggard Razors. (https://www.maggardrazors.com/)

I purchased a new razor head for a spare handle I’ve had laying about.  And I also picked up a Semogue boar brush.

I’ll give the V3 a test drive and report back with a performance review.  I’m told it’s a bit more aggressive than what I usually use.

The Semogue Boar Brush is quite nice. So far, it promises to be a nice addition to my shaving gear.

If you saw my previous video on the blog showing a real nice wooden bowl that comes with three shaving soap pucks, the question quickly becomes how to securely fit the soap puck into the bowl.

This is, by far, the easiest way to fit a soap puck into any bowl or container.

In this video, I used Colonel Conk’s Lime Shaving Soap and a brand new Kingsley wooden shaving bowl.

The main point to remember is DO NOT bring the water to a boil. Keep it on a medium to high heat and simply allow the water to steam. Place the cut pieces of the shaving soap puck in a heat resistant bowl. I used a Grab It bowl by CorningWare.
