Gentlemen,

From time to time I write a short article for a local publication on the world of traditional shaving. These are meant for the general public, hoping to win some converts. My space is limited to 700 words, about three double-spaced typewritten pages, so I can't get that specific. My topics vary from straights razors, DE razors, brushes, soaps, and so on. Here is the latest one. I trust it will be of some help for our members contemplating straight razor shaving. Enjoy, and thanks for reading.
