I have been meaning to write about shaving with straight razors for a couple of years now. I got into it about 3 years ago and I have to tell you that it is fantastic on so many levels. 1. Financially inexpensive, 2. Environmentally sound, 3. One of the best shaves you'll ever have and 4. Shaving becomes a deep meditation.
If you decided to try shaving the #1 thing is buy a great razor. Make the worthwhile investment. The best in the business is Dovo. www.dovo.com. And the smartest man about shaving is Lynn Abrams of the Straight Razor Place. www.straightrazorplace.com Lynn is an incredible resource. Skip all others. There is a lot of bad information online. Some of Lynn's talks are online. Here is another how to link about... shaving
The proudest moment is to know that in about 2 months your razor pays for it self and you never have to put another piece of trash in a land field ever again.
Let me know about your straight razor experiences.
