I'm no computer wiz but here is a link to an article appearing in my local paper and I hope it works.
There should also be a video link to the Morning Calls facebook page.
Granted there are misquotes as a new razor and strop can't be had for $30.00 but I had been talking about Whippeddog straights and his beginner strops.
And no, a straight can't be cleaned up with a toothbrush. There i was talking about cleaning up a used DE with scrubbing bubbles etc.

That is obviously not my Grandfathers razor but my new EJ razor. I did hold my Grandfathers, but editing showed this one.

But it was fun to do. And the "On the Cheap" angle can be misleading as most of you know.

thank you Mark!
Jim had also posted it through twitter, and I also caught the pricing and cleanup, and thought "hmmm, perhaps they weren't paying attention!"
none the less, you have another part of traditional straight shaving mentioned out there for the world to see Biggrin

Blessings,
James

No idea why, but that is not at all what I expected you to look like.

I know I know , you were expecting Brad Pitt!
Instead you got this!
Did you keep your lunch down? What did you anticipate from a guy nearing 60?

I wish "nearing 60" didn't sound so young. Nice job. Now I have a face for the man who is a magician refurbishing razors.

Thank you all for your kind words. I appreciate them very much.
I wish I had a face to attach to all my friends I have met here.
But I see just as much in what you say. Thank you again!

Don't know why but I had you pegged in your 30s.

OK , now this just begs the question.

What did you expect ? A mad scientist, someone younger / older?

Sorry , I saw the + 1 but somehow missed the 30 comment.

I'm 30 on the inside! I may sound youthful,,, just don't look it.
