    Been thinking about trying straight razors out. Are they really that much better than the cheap Gillette I use? I'd be worried about slicing parts of my face off with a straight razor!

    For me shaving with a straight vs. a DE transformed shaving from being a chore to something I actually look forward to, even though it does take a me a little longer. Not like the result is THAT much better but I really enjoy the process and the attention/focus it commands. It is also one of the few ways to be completely bad-ass in your bathroom.

    If you just want to give it a try go to http://www.whippeddog.com/ and get his sight unseen starter kit. It will get you started for $55 (you might want to get a brush too) and you will get a perfect sense of what it is all about.

    I just started two weeks ago and I'm sold. I think after using a knife for so long, using a straight to shave just feels natural.

    The whipped dog deal is great.

    I dabble, but I'm a minimalist, when it comes to straights.
