Nothing really.....my dad had a bunch of them as pilots logs and I guess it carried over to me. I take notes in them when I'm studying for my CFP designation. That way when I put them on the bookshelf in my office at work they look normal and subtle.

I would have bought a proper razor before a brush, but that's just me

its the fusion proglide... its true but the brush actually provides extra performance over using hands, while if i bought a fancy razor handle its just for show...
im more about function > form imho

I was referring to a safety razor, IE: ditching the mass produced one and getting something better.

straight up. i swore by DE's. but gilette did it right with the fusion. wonderful, wonderful razor. plus the razor is literally the least important part of the shave... as long as the blade is sharp and you prep properly you'll get a good shave. nothing i have ever used has ever been as close as the fusion with a single stroke. one stroke shave with the fusion is equivalent to a full straight razor or 2-3 strokes on a DE. and i use the japanese feather razors on my DE which are some of the sharpest around.

with that said, i've been through every brand with shaving. my current setup is a fusion razor with musgo real preshave oil. proraso cream and baxter of california aftershave. i've found nothing better and i'm certain i've used it all. truefitt, DR harris, taylors, all of it. if you want a single product line, musgo real is the best for all three products, bar none: oil, cream, aftershave balm.
