Thanks for sharing the article. I found it interesting that the classes on wet shaving filled each time they were offered and included a starter kit.

What a great article! Guys and Gals should take a breather from life take between 15-30 minutes of the day and focus on themselves. Start or finish the day with pride, take time to decide which soap or cream you feel like using today, take the time find out which razor and blade (or straight razor) works for them. Then try different creams or soaps that perform and smell great to them. Get on line and compare notes with people who enjoy this hobby/ritual. Most importantly enjoy a half an hour with themselves, take care of your skin and enjoy the relaxation that is traditional wet shaving! Most importantly teach/introduce someone new to wet shaving there is no reason for it to be a dying art when it's superior and more cost effective (yeah I know) to modern technology. Before I discovered wet shaving I shaved every day and hated it, now I have to shave every other day and wished it was every day, go figure. Enjoy your shave!

Thanks for sharing the article. I've read about a few other places that are doing wet shave clinics and they all seem to be doing well.

Thanks for sharing that article, yet another wetshaving mention in mainstream media. It really is remarkable how traditional wetshaving is making a comeback. Remarkable, but not surprising.

I don't think there has been any experience in my life that I hated so much for such a long time that I now love.

What I have noticed the last 20 years is that people started going to work unshaven. You just didn't do that in days gone by.

I really think the reason is the discomfort of shaving with today's cartridges and disposables. And it has become a fashion statement not to shave.

If shaving wasn't such a chore I think every man would do it regularly. You can do it with the old-time equipment.
