Some time ago, SWMBO introduced me to destination spas and we return to one in particular every year. This was my first visit with my DE shave gear and I shaved each day in the men's lounge since it was next to the steam room and I had my own locker to store the gear. It was my first time DE shaving in public, if you will, and the brush, lathering, and safety razor caught a few glimpses over the days. Two actually stopped and asked about it, and one brought his 20-something son back to show him how his father used to shave. It was nice to answer questions for those who asked, as I first expected nobody would have cared. I told both who asked me that it was much cheaper and provided greatly superior shaves. I'd like to think I wasn't misleading them about the monetary aspects I guess I know how the military guys who DE shave feel after this experience. BTW, 20 minutes in a steam room will do absolutely no harm to shave prep!
