My barber used her barber razor to shave the back of my neck after my haircut.... it felt good.
@losing, if you are serious about trying traditional SR shaving, give this PIF serious consideration.
GIVEAWAY! - PIF No.2 for Those Who Are Serious About Getting Into Straight Razor Shaving - Not CONUS or CanadaPIF No.2 NOT AVAILABLE TO CONUS OR CANADA RESIDENTS If you are serious about getting in to traditional straight razor shaving, this could be the PIF for you. To show that you are really serious, you will need to first put together at least a 0.1µm diamond pasted balsa strop before entering. The...www.badgerandblade.com
You have plenty of time to put together a 0.1μm pasted balsa strop.
I'm conus... The balsa strop does interest me but I think it will be awhile before I try my hands at one. It will be awhile before I can even start looking for a straight razor.
Every day that you put it off is a day that you will forever regret later. You won't believe that until it happens.
Before looking for a SR, I suggest that you put together a 0.1μm pasted balsa strop. This will also perform initially as a strop for your SR.It's not about putting it off. It's about saving up enough money to start looking for a razor. Actually I have to find razors that fit my budget and possibly a design I like, although that is not a deal breaker.
I will depend on the keyboard app that you are using. Try going to the symbols part of your keyboard, long-press the π symbol and see what options you have available. Using the Google keyboard, I have Ω, Π and μ available..... I can vouch that a single 0.1um (I wish I knew how to type the micron symbol on my phone, that “u” hurts my engineering brain every time) ....
I’ve wet-shaved for more than 50 years, and always preferred a Shick Injector razor. I have several vintage models. I also have some vintage Gillette safety razors which I use frequently. And I use disposables in a pinch.I have been using a cheapo shavette with Shark blades, and they have been serving me well. Looking on this forum has me looking into a straight razor. They have always interested me but with honing, stropping and all it just seemed like something I could never do right. Also the price was also a big concern as well.
As I scour the forums for everything straight razor, a question came to mind. How different is using a shavette compared to a straight razor? I am thinking they are similar but obviously have differences.
Probably fine. When I started straight shaving it was with my grandfather's razor that had not been touched in probably 70 years. There's really only one way to find out.I stored my straights in a sealed plastic jar years ago. They were “shave ready” at the time. I’m assuming that they stayed that way, and consequently can be used with just stropping.

With the pasted balsa strop put together, you can enter my PIF. Very few enter so you will have a very good chance of winning the PIF, a free shave-ready SR, including shipping. @Seelector was the last winner and was the only entry.
Sorry, you are a bit late. Read this first:i also wanna participate and wanna win it man
