Default Straight razor shaving.

Seriously one of the best and worst ideas ever. I have 5 cuts on my face/throat...buttttt, otherwise my face is baby smooth. Ones I get it down I'll be such a boss. haha
Just thought I'd share. Anyone else here straight razor shave?

I probably have the same set, it is great, takes forever to use everything though. However the results are awesome.

I have been interested in strait razor shaving, do you happen to have a link to this set? On a side note, I am sure I am wrong but I heard that strait razor shaving changes the direction your hair grows, so if you shave up it will grow up and if you shave down it will grow down. I am sure this is just some old wives tale but I would still like your guys input on this. Later.

I love the shave i get from then (had it done never done it my self) but for me a gelette fusion razer and some nivea for me shave gel and its pretty close to a straight razer... my biggest fear about a straight razer is they call them cutthroats for a reason.

I've been using a DE blade for about 6 months now, and i love it. maybe one day i'll try out the full straight razor. i've only ever cut myself once; i was tryin to shave the very edge between bottom of nose and top of upper lip and almost cut the 14g retainer out of my septum . other than that, perfect shave, no razor burn, i can shave my whole face (minus bearded area) and neck in about 5-7 minutes, and $.45 for a blade is way better than $3 for a new cartridge of way too many blades.

I have a couple straight razors I keep in my Bathroom... To make guest think I use them plus they look nice and have pearl handles and such. But I am way to worried about trying to use one.
One day Ill work up the courage to try....

I seen someone else mention.... Nivea Shaving Cream, I went to Nivea and aint going back and its rare you find something cheaper and better. Of Course I use a Mach 3 mainly.

I have quite a few straight razors laying around, and when they're tuned up there's simply no better shave. Like wiping a squeegee down your whiskers. When they're nicked or dull...well....then they're not so great. straightrazorplace and for a little more all around stuff shavemyface.
After all steel so sharp that hairs fall in half against it...doesn't belong against your throat/face/etc until you've done some homework.
Still, kind of like hookah, its way worth it so long as you have a little time.
Also like hookahs...you'll likely end up with more than one.

I love straight razors, but I never trust myself to use them. Whenever I go to a good barber I ask for a straight razor shave and get one of the closest and most comfortable shaves I've ever had.

Personally, though, I can't help but associate straight razors with Sweeney Todd.

Straight razor after the haircut is the best. It's so hard to find nowadays though...
