I remember going to the barbershop with my father. This was mid to late 1960's.
I scents I remember most are Vitalis, old chair leather, an ashtray, but most of all it was the flatulence from whatever all those "old men" ate the night before.
I believe it depends more on you than any other thing.
It depends on how much effort you have put into learning each of your razors. I am talking angle.
It also depends on how much time you've invested in each brand of blade. They all cut hair. You can search a particular blade brand in these...
More than one of anything. I have 3 brushes that sit around doing nothing. I have 3 razors that sit around doing nothing. I do have one menthol and one non menthol soap so that's not as bad but more than a couple pucks of soap is a waste. Preshave products and most post shave products as well...
I love this; but though they started small and made lower volume batches, the plan was for a business. So upon further review this one is disqualified. Nowhere in the definition does it state that the product is of high quality or even sold for that matter.

For those of you old enough to remember; when I think artisan Granny from the "Beverly Hillbillies" is what comes to mind. Somebody standing over a huge kettle on a fire mixing away with a paddle. Another example is Wozniak in a garage making an original Apple Computer with just some hand tools...

When do we stop calling an artisan an artisan and just a manufacturer? I mean some of these guys, I can think of at least three or four off the top of my head, produce and ship a boat load of product.
I don't know what barbershops you went to, but the one my father used in the late 1960's and early 1970's smelled like old leather, an ashtray, and lots of flatulence. Throw in some Vitals hair tonic and every now and then the scent of the Cambell's Hot Lather machine running. That is my...
I was thinking about just letting the barber use a straight on me once a month; for about $12 can't go wrong with that. The 37c is the one that I keep looking at. From the posts and reviews it seems like a nice middle of the road razor.
Thank you for the tip on the under the nose thing. I have...
I have some sensitive areas right under my entire jaw line. It seems like no two hairs grown in the same direction. If I go straight down with my Mission razor no hair at all removed from my entire neck. My question is do you think the Merkur slant will help or make that area worse?
