Traditional Wet Shaving

I shave with a traditional safety razor, a badger brush, and Taylor shaving cream (although I have a beard, so I'm really just using this on my neck.)

Here's a great tip I wish I'd known when I started: after you shave, use shampoo to clean your brush. My first badger brush only lasted maybe two years before bristles started falling out. My second one, which I think I got in 2017, is still going strong since I've always shampooed it. I just get cheapo Pert two-in-one shampoo/conditioner from the grocery story. Cleans the brush great, and one bottle will last you for years.
