About to pull the trigger, Thoughts?(r/wicked_edge)
The stand is pretty much pointless, but if you want one then get it. Buy a blade sampler pack, instead of just single brand. Here is as to why.
You could get silvertip brush from whippeddog.com for $26. Silvertip is higher quality of badger hair than pure.
With the saved money from stand and brush you could buy a Edwin Jagger DE8x razor. For example this one.
Edit: also you need a shaving cream/soap. Cream is usually recommended for beginners as it is easier to create lather with and is better choice if you have hard water. Here is few good and inexpensive shaving cream brands: Speick, Taylor of Old Bond Street and Proraso.
