I got into wetshaving years ago when Gillette came out with their 5-bladed razor. I was getting fed up with buying 4 cartridges for about $15 for these new "shaving systems". I decided to go back to the "shaving system" my grandfather used. A safety razor with a double edged blade. Then I git rid of the can, and decided to use a brush and soap in a cup. Now I make my own soap (well, melt it is more accurate word because I'm using glycerin soap, so all I have to do is melt it into the cup in the microwave, and add a few drops of scent and a drop if color).
