There are so many great options and I’m sure each person on here will have their own opinions as to which would be a good 1st DE razor. For me it would be either a Muhle 89 or a cheap and cheerful used Gillette Tech. Neither will set you back many pennies, the Tech can be picked up for around £10-£15 on eBay the 89 will set you back around £30 new. Either razor paired with an Astra green blade would be my go to but you might find it worth getting a sample pack from the likes of Connaught or agentshave and seeing which blades you prefer for your skin type. Samples are a great way of discovering different types of blades and how the smoothness of each compares with their sharpness. A good tutorial video on YouTube will will help you prepare for your first DE shave. The key principle being do not force or push the razor on the skin. Let the razor do all of the work. It’s a completely different type of shave to a cartridge shave and that is one of the most important things to remember when switching to DE shaving.Thanks a lot for your help that cream is amazing, so cheap too! I do trust your judgement now after that haha are there any DE razors you would recommend i have never used one before?
