Thread: Traditional wet shaving

  1. #11
    Funny thing, until recently I was convinced that straights gave the closest shave but then Jim PIF'd me (Paid it Forward) with an old "New" style Gillette DE and I'm floored with how well it works. I'm loving how fast and easy I can get a straight razor shave which is needed sometimes when I'm on the run. Straights do talk my language though.

    David, you need to get a billet of Del's damascus sent over to Butch for a razor grind job.

    aframestokyo has some nice razors, it's been on my 'to get' list for a while. i havent used a razor in a few years because i get terrible razor burn on my throat, but im confident that a good razor along the lines of this would give me better results. currently i just use a beard trimmer and have permanent stubble, but im 25 so i can get away with it

    I used a DE forever, don't you dare even think about moving it laterally. Yikes, it makes a mess.

    A DE is a safety razor- you can cut yourself if you are really really intoxicated- seriously though its not voodoo, millions of men shaved like this for a decades.
