I have had the pleasure of a couple straight razor shaves in my life. Nothing like a stanger holding a razor to your throat to make you feel alive!
I have actually been looking into getting my own set for a number of reasons.
First, I love a badger hair brush and real shaving cream. The canned chemical goop always murders my skin and it stinks.
Second, disposable razors cost a fortune. My wife bought me a set of Harry's razors, which are nice, but still disposable, and they don't come close to the comfort of a straight shave.
Third, a straight razor will last a lifetime if taken care of.
Last, the sheer quality and comfort of the shave is unparralled.
I'm not so much interested in vintage pieces yet, but are there any particular brands you recommend?
This is a fun topic
