mantic59 don't you mean? just as irrelevant and annoying as the original nut.I agree @naughtilus. I don’t begrudge anyone with a passion for something trying to spread it. And from what i gather, he left his career as a teacher to start his store so i hardly think he ranks with car salesmen and the like. As i said i’m no fan of his method but i think if nothing else he’s an interesting character. And it’s also interesting matic59 is his protégée so to speak.
Lots of "one way" and "one twue way" to shave people on the forums. Some do it from pure delusion of grandeur. The just like the attention and attempt to get fame and fans by converting suckers, er new to de shaving folks,, to their specific way of shaving.
So much is "gots to hold the razor my way", hold the brush my way, create lather by swirling the brush in clockwise motion for 20 seconds, 20 seconds counter clockwise.... and such like bull**** nonsense.
Others do it from pure greed, ie they own a business that they link to a shaving "method".. One American shaving forum is done that way completely, not only is it tied to a business that sells melt and pour shaving soap, but the forum is devoted to a bizarre method of shaving. Just cant remember the name.
Then you have something like bullgoose shaving. and its website forum. Completely created to promote everything sold by the shaving goods store, and to promote every item in "over stock" quantities as the greatest thing for shaving exactly 2 weeks before it goes on "special sale price".
