    Hey all,
    I've been DE shaving for years but only recently gotten 'ok' at it- mostly due to poor lather. Hopefully I can learn to make it more consistently good, but also learn about locally made soaps/creams (without breaking my limited budget!). Usually nowadays I'm using a Schick Krona or a RazorRock 6c, a Yaqi brush (thanks to feedback from members here) and Poraso soap (props to Mediterranean Wholesalers in Brunswick, Melbourne for their good Poraso pricing, convenience and improved coffee). Also recently interested in trying out a Gem/Ever-Ready single edge (hah, which one? I count at least 9 types). Cheers!

    Thanks people! Might also be a good idea if I don't run out of time like usual, leaving only 10mins to shave.....hmmm. Just bought a Gem single edge, early one, a 1912 or similar; might try for a Micromatic Open Comb later. Now I need blades.
