    My Plan to Eliminate Razor Burn on My Neck

    I had the same problem at first. I've recently found that using noxzema as a preshave works well. I use a fat handle tech, with derby blades so far giving the best results. Those blades feel a little dull on a 2+ day growth, so I'll use a feather in my ball end tech on the first pass and then...

    Thanks Jake. That's what I was worried about more so than the blade being shave ready. He had several, so I may run back there in the next couple days or so and snap some pics.

    New find today

    So today there was an art festival in town (a very small town) and I was walking around the square.

    Thanks for all the info. And Captain, that sounds awesome! I found a few today at an antique shop, but none were shave ready and that might be a bit much for me to tackle not knowing if I like it yet.

    This may belong on the newbie forum, but I thought I would try here first. I'm looking to get started using a straight and I've never done it before. I've watched countless videos and read many posts here on b&b so I think I know how to do it. I'm asking you all, what would be a good straight to...

    Groom manly gift ideas (razor, soap, pen, whiskey...)

    A store called things remembered has tons of relatively inexpensive manly gifts that you can have engraved with whatever you want. Several options, most under $100 engraved.
