A recent article at Art of Manliness about cold water shaving generated a lot of interest and I received many messages from readers of this blog and subscribers to my Youtube channel asking for my comment.
I tried it for a week or so using a variety of shaving kit (different razors, creams, soaps, etc.). The short answer from me is that yes, it seems to work relatively well. A couple times I got a shave more-or-less equal to what I could get using hot water (but no better).
I’m sorry though, I just enjoy the feeling of warm water & warm lather too much to abandon it! Perhaps I’ll try it again during the heat of the Texas summer.
