This is the razor I went with.
I picked up an Omega boar bristle brush
and some Feather blades to go with it.
I've only used it once but I have to say I was very pleased. If you want to learn more about shaving with safety/double edge razors or straight razors you can learn all you want at the Blade and Badger forum. You can also learn a lot on Youtube.
What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice
