HI guys.. no stranger here in this fourm.. my old account was hacked and I havent been on this site for awhile.. so I am back. so.. I have been shaving with safety razor for close 5 yrs now. learned alot from this site. SO I had the crave checking out straight razor shaving. what it like and how I felt about it. there was a guy have a shop in town about 20 mins drive there. I was told he was good. so went have it done.. with 2 days old beard. he preshave it with electic razor for safety.. prep me with hot towel then its begins.. I can feel that razor is damn sharp. he stroke it one inch at a time. closest shave ever.. a par better than safety razor. Now I know why some folks love straight razor shaving.
