It has been a while time since the last Shavetools.com contest, so we're holding another! To enter just make a short reply post telling every one what first made you decide to try traditional wet shaving, or if you're the strong silent type, you can just reply with "I'm in." Also, if you haven't been to Shavetools.com recently, we'd love it if you'd drop by, look around and maybe write a product review or two. The contest ends on July 14th with the winner determined randomly. First prize will be a Shavetools STSS Razor I'll get the ball rolling with an example: I have a thick, heavy, dark beard, and light skin. The combination always meant that I had a 5'oclock shadow by noon, as they say. For added fun, my whiskers are thick enough that they dull blades quickly and that only a very sharp blade will cut without a lot of tugging. I had tried various options with generally poor results, and saw an advertisement for something called "The rolling razor." I considered buying it to try out, and read some reviews, which made ti quite clear that the rolling razor was unlikely to be what I needed. One review suggested traditional wet shaving as an alternative, and the rest as they say is history.
