We have quite a few straight razor shavers.  Look through the SOTD pictures and you will see some of them.

Here's the irony...had you started shaving with a straight first, you'd be a far better DE and SE shaver. I started late in life with straights and wish I had learned shaving with straight razor when I first started shaving. Even if you don't stay with a straight razor you'll learn what shaving truly entails with a straight.

Well said! I started with straights and it does help me better appreciate a good DE or SE razor. But does not prevent from another RAD  Smile

The RAD never goes away. My wife and I have separate, but ample bathroom sink areas. She just gave me an eviction notice saying, "The museum has got to be relocated." I've been binging on Valet AutoStrop models as of late.

Yea, agree fully that learning to shave with a SR will do nothing but improve your shaving with a DE/SE. Everybody needs an additional RAD or two also.

Oh, and yes we are around.

Straights are the roots of shaving as far as I am concerned.  They take the utmost discipline and attention.  The result if you do you part........the most rewarding shave I can think of!

Did not get to this point with my SWMBO, but it already feels like I am walking on a very thin ice... Smile

A bit intimidating to new shavers who are usually the most excitable and vocal. Good for us I say, keeps the prices down.

We're here. I am restricted to short messages because if I write long ones there's a laaaaaaag. That's why I don't post often.

I have come across a lot of them so I will be restoring quiet a few and keeping the ones I like. The one I restored I love. So unique and rare to find a blade like that.
