I’ve recently gotten into what I’ve determined is now a highly addictive hobby of shaving with straights. Used to, I’d use my cartridge safety while in the shower. However, I’ve always been interested in straights and took the plunge. Now I’m ENJOYING my daily shave ritual and building up quite the collection of tools and accessories! Thinking about getting into making some of my own “software” supplies but I’ll do some more research before concocting something the Household6 might not let me try again.

Originally from The Lone Star State, I serve in the US Army as a Recruiter. So, if you know anyone who wants to or could benefit from joining, send them my way. “Always be closing!”

Welcome to the TSN.  Beware of SAD (shaving acquisition disorder) as it has taken over my bathroom to the annoyance of my wife.  I have always been afraid of straights as I tend to be a bit clumsy and have cut my hands a few times making dinner.

Welcome to the Forum, and thank you for your service.

I've ventured into Straight Razor shaving about 9 months ago-wonderful journey.

I'd commend the thread called 'Why is the Straight Razor subforum so slow?' to you. It's the journey of kingfisher as he began his SR journey, and it's a really good read.

I’ve got SAD, RAD (Razor AD), and now BRAD (Bay Rum AD). The wife is on board so far and being supportive trying to find a good wall of countertop organizer for my little hobby.
Have to say I’ve always been apprehensive of straights for fear of cutting myself as well. However, I think that fear is part of why it’s such a slow methodical and thereby therapeutic morning ritual. You’ll nick yourself no doubt but after a few times you start to really figure out your technique and beard pattern. You got to try straights and give it at least a month of regular shaving!

Seeing you make lathers, I can’t believe you haven’t tried them.

Welcome to the Shave Nook. 

Thanks for YOUR service! I was at Hood just before being stationed in Michigan. The Great Place is getting so much better from what I remember when I was kid.

I’m an old 11B infantryman (straight leg, never airborne) but crossed over to the “Dark Side” and converted to 79R Cadre Recruiter after enjoying my first assignment as a Soldier on recruiting assignment.
