    Kevin, my cartridge razor of choice used to be the kos azor, I can assure you that after a week I was getting a better shave with a single blade de and good soap than I ever did with the kos. Well worth dropping a few quid and giving it a go. Just be careful and remember to lather often and it's a pleasure.
    From now on if my comment can be expressed in the form of a tired internet meme or picture.
    So it shall be done.

    'tis true, I wenr back to a cheap DE razor a while back, and after the odd cut early on (OK, OK, Bloodbath) I get a closer shave, and a lot less irritation. I must say that even the bog standard wilkinson sword blades, brush and soap seem fine. I have chucked the cheapo razor in favour of a EJ, and that was a change for the better. ( Not CD to vinyl, or night and day, but you don't get blacker backgrounds quite as quick)
    Music is a colourfull outburst of the soul, Can I use the colours I choose, Do I have some say what you use, Can I get some greens with my blues?

    After 3 years of shaving with the cheapest DE available (being a student doesn't really allow spending 20 where it's not essential), I appear to have bought a 30s open-comb Gillette New. And I've just ordered a new Omega brush and a couple of packs of blades to try.

    However, I'm telling myself that I'm not going to allow ADs to take over...

    EDIT: having cleaned and sterilised the razor, I've now shaved with it. What a difference - even with the used blade from my other razor (no new ones in the house ) it was smooth and irritation-free. Can't wait to get a new blade in it.
