Goose Poop Connoisseur
Having shaved for over 50 years, I ask that same question and have no idea other than being able to chat with people. I have gone to straight shaving being enabled and encouraged by B&B and have made some friends along the way and enjoy reading posts by guys that have never even shaved with a DE etc. I believe the bottom line is just communicating with other people. This is my only social media - no politics, fuming and fighting - just peaceful conversation.Having read a lot of post and comments on this forum over the last year, i started to ask myself why is shaving such a topic ? There is probably no highly active forum about showering or nail clipping.
Thinking about myself, i started to read some posts, after my father in law had passed. He was a 90 year old British gentleman, with a treasure trove of life experience. And every time we had the chance we would sit down with a good cigar and happily chat away. It was him who showed me how to use a straight razor, shared his preferences between T&H, TOBS and Trumpers, and passed on the information of a new find.
Having shaved everyday for more than 70 years, he was still curious about new products. (He even tried a Harry’s razor and recommended it to his grandsons as a starter razor)
So apparently shaving, is one of these topics like cigars, whisky, wine, cars, pocket knives, guns, sport and women.
Why is it a topic for you?
