    First Straight Shave Tomorrow

    I feel like I have done my homework and will give it a try in the morning. I fully expect it to feel like throwing a baseball with my left hand (RHP). I know going in that it will take time for muscle memory to kick in. I got a Dovo Forestal from thesuperiorshave and a Walking Horse strop...

    How long after starting DE, to consider straights?

    I started DE shaving a month ago and things have gone pretty well. I still get some razor burn in a couple areas which tells me I need to adjust my technique in these areas. I'm getting there. I'm considering a straight but am wondering what my timing should be and what type of razor I start...

    Ingrown Hairs

    I've read about these but don't think I have experienced any. Actually I completely forgot about the issue since I started DE shaving a month ago. I've played around with ATG to see how smooth I can get my shave with no issues other than razor burn. Do some people just not get ingrowns and...

    Marisol AS

    I got this product as my first aftershave from thesuperiorshave.com I did a search for it on BB and came up with zilch. Does anyone else use this product? I can't compare it to other products since this is the only one I have used to date.

    Newb wanting to get started

    I'm a total neophyte with regards to DE shaving. I just got done thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail last month and grew the beard (about 7 months) in the photo below. Upon my reentry to "proper society" the beard had to go, although I did like it. And no, I have not appeared on Duck...
