Discussion of the Week: Getting Started with Traditional Wet Shaving!
- It’s important to incorporate a brush and soap into your regular routine.
- Learning to lather properly with your current razor will help along in the learning process,

- If you’re currently using an electric razor, switch to a brush, soap and cartridge style razor before jumping into a classic form.
