that it turns what most men think of as a chore into an enjoyable experience. Shaving becomes a pleasure. You can use a razor that is over 200 years old or one that was made last week by a real craftsman.
This is a true story. The truth is that it will suck. You'll get cut. You'll wonder why you're subjecting yourself to the razor burn. Then it gets better and the litany of things to do starts to jive. All is good in the 'hood until hones come knocking.If you like doing things that involve process it's for you. Requires a much higher level of commitment.
Cause straights are dead kewl. Shaving with a straight sets you above the bleating, thundering herd.
Straights are green. No blades to just use a few times and toss.
Straight shaving is pure and elemental.
Straight shaving is getting in touch with the past. You can even shave with a 150 year old razor and know that you can pass it down to your grandkids some day.
Real men shave with a straight... or bleed to death trying.
