What Should My Next Videos Be About?

It’s been entirely too long since I’ve done some shaving videos.  I think I finally have a handle on the new video equipment I’m using so it’s back to my bathroom studio!  Right now I’m working on:

  • Holding a Shaving Brush For Better Performance and Control
  • Stropping a Straight Razor
  • Finding Wet Shaving Products Locally
  • Loading and Applying Traditional Shaving Lather (this is a high-definition update of a previous video, with some things added).

What else would you like me to work on?  I’m taking requests!

    I think shaving in a New York taxi on the way to the airport would be a YouTube smash! As an added bonus, take shots of Yager between every 5th pass. “Dueling Banjos” would be the perfect soundtrack for this.

    Perhaps a ‘Common mistakes keeping you away from that great shave’ video. Based on my own experiences learning wet-shaving mistakes such as:
    * Being afraid of using, or taking as gospel, the prescribed amount of product. Go for a decent-sized blob of cream and load that brush heavily with soap.
    * Proper prep. Perhaps do an audio example of shaving poorly-prepped stubble vs softened stubble.
    * Being too eager to reach BBS, resulting in nicks and shave-rash.
    I’m sure there are lots more, just my two cents.

    I’ve always wanted to try shaving with a straight, but there seems to be a lot of things that go along with buying one.
    Strops, honing, stones… a video for a beginning SE shaver would be great.
