This is my first Safety Razor purchase. Is this a decent price or would I be better off piecing it together?(r/wicked_edge)
Whoa… that is a lot, you can probably put it together for a lot less.
As a suggestion:
Razor: Edwin Jagger DE89 $32
Brush: Omega boar brush (or something similar) $14 – Leisureguy can probably recommend a better one for the same price
Soap: Proraso (kinda like a creamy soap) ~ $10
Alum block: Bloc Osma $9
And as an additional:
Book: Leisureguy’s Guide to Gourmet Shaving $10
The above comes to only $76, leaving you enough money for a brush stand, a sampler pack and maybe an aftershave!
