It's cheap but I am not sure if it's amazing.
I use it as my travel razor, waiting for popular to test.

Rockwell 2C plate 3 meet my expectations, no learning curve no worry of nicks, love the angle. Can complete my shave fast

You like to read B&B forum and pass judgement on a razor you have never used, right? Just regurgitate whatever people write on B&B.
No use. Whatever you write. Don't waste our time.

BBS with the Ming Shi/QShave Merkur Futur clone. For just RM26, it's an amazing adjustable razor.

Any idea if there's a difference between Ming Shi and Qshave? Seems like Qshave is more expensive than the Ming Shi.

It seems that the first affordable version of the 'Futur' design was from MIng Shi. Have read many favorable reviews on this particular brand. No idea about Qshave though. My advice is , go with the crowd

Old Spice - Gillette Red Tip shave.
I prefer the scent of the OS after shave compared to the shaving cream.

Anyone know where to buy loose pack of double edge blades? I don't want to buy blades by the carton/100s. I saw the Gillette Super Nacet blade at Kedai Rakyat 1Malaysia but it is expensive at $5.67 per pack (5 blades).

Own a qshave, not my razor. This design head too big.
Cheap razor feather popular beats them IMHO.

This site has a few thread comparing

DE Razors (Vintage) - eBay

DE Blades at Haniffa, Mydin, some Giant stores, Kedai Rakyat 1Malaysia, any Indian Barbershop, online/overseas.



Shaving Brush - online/overseas

What is your budget?

You can get nice badger brush, stand and bowl on AliExpress

Soap I like menthol if you like it in the hot weather try proraso shaving soap. Easy to leather

Razor for starter I recommend Rockwell 6C.

Fatip open comb is pretty aggressive can give very close shave. don't own one but I do won the Muhle R41

Is budgeting RM200 enough? Otherwise, I can always double it. To me it's more about achieving a smooth and close shave that matters most. I saw the link to the Rockwell 6C, that looks good. Any places I can purchase similar types razors locally? Would like to go to the shop and check them out.
