    Default Looking into a DE for my Fiance, Comb or No Comb?

    My Fiance is interested in trying out a DE for shaving her legs and underarms, and possibly some intimate areas, so I'm doing the research. My first big question though is comb or not?

    NO comb.

    Combs are made to be more aggressive and lift the hair. If she is anything like me, I cannot stand stubble on my underarms and shave regularly. With the comb, frequent shaving could mean irritation. I would recommend a comb if she was already a seasoned shaver and likes more aggression.

    I hope this helps!

    Thanks! She would definitely prefer as gentle a shave as possible.

    I started a thread in the general razor forum here: DE for my lady: Recommendations/Advice

    Looking for advice on a couple of razors I posted links to, or suggestions for other DE razors in the $30 range

    Thanks!

    Armpits/scalp are about the only things i don't shave, but I have 3 open comb DE's and did find one of them to be overly aggressive. The first two, one long-comb, one short can be used interchangeably. The third one (another short comb) is just a little "too hot" and gave me some shin bite recently. I retired it.

    I think I'd like a TTO with a comb, but they are more rare and bring more money, but mostly I'm not in "bidding/shopping mode". So my O/C razors are all 3-piece old/new Gillettes.

    The antiques tend to be inexpensive enough to try 'em all. Keep what works for you.

    I only use SR on face, as I find them hard to keep pivot dry on legs and lose focus with all that real-estate to cover. Would be a blast to have SO to shave. It'll happen.
