The things I do for you people. Ever since I started making shaving videos I’ve had requests to make one (or more!) about shaving with a straight razor. I’ve resisted those requests because, frankly, I didn’t really want to mess with it. Straight razors are expensive, fussy to maintain (IMHO), and difficult to learn (comparatively speaking).
But the requests just keep coming. So I recently went over to Straight Razor Place for some advice. And to make a long story a little shorter, I found a relatively inexpensive “beginners kit” I can use to play with and–perhaps–learn enough to do a video. Don’t expect anything tomorrow though. I plan to take several months to learn and practice. A decent video is probably a year off.
