    Have you browsed Lefty's site? His Brooklyn to London soap is very nice and at one time he had some bowls made by Tom Grey Pottery (a fellow kkf'er). He also has quite a few brushes...I'm sure he would be happy to help you get started.

    I also recommend trying a bunch of blades to see what you like. Feather's are definitely sharp, but I prefer Personna-Medical-Prep blades or Derby's. I've bought double edge blades from this site because they offer quite a few sample size packages. When you find what you like you can probably find them in 100 packs for a very reasonable price.

    Good luck, I transitioned to double edge about a year ago and just bought my first straight razor. I believe the slope is quite slippery.

    Feathers here too. Leave them in the DE until it is time for a new one. Last a loooooong time, but I also use a straight about every other shave.

    Head shaves have never been so painful.

    Kamisori

    Thanks Magnus. This Kamisori is made by Henkotsu. 1" tall at tip. 2" shaving base. 6 3/4" overall length. Everytime I shave with it its like a ritual blood letting day. Had it for almost two years, only shaved with it 4 times. It likes to get stuck in the outer coverings of my skull, it also likes to slice things off my head which I do not wish to be sliced off.
