So, I went grocery shopping last night at my local Wal-mart. I used to be able to buy Wilkinson Sword DE blades for my shavette, but they stopped carrying them about 6 months ago. I can still get…Continue

Saturdays are often 'no-shave' days. Nevertheless, out of the shower, autopilot, I found myself lathering up. So I went ahead, of course. 'happen to you guys?

I'm about to begin my wet shaving journey. So excited!

Just read the list of the 7 deadly sins of wet shaving. Wow. I guess I've been doing it wrong for over 40 years!

I really love it when people try to over-complicate things that are really pretty simple. If wet shaving had been some arcane art that required hundreds of dollars of specialized before, during and after products, and if it really needed even 15 minutes per day dedicated to it, does anyone really believe busy working men would have ever taken up the practice? I've been shaving with a straight razor since my grandfather showed me how in my late teens, nearly 45 years ago. It takes about 5 minutes, start to finish, and that includes everything from stropping to splashing on the aftershave.

My advice to new wet shavers is, unless it makes you happy to obsess over minutiae, keep it simple. Wash your face, strop your razor, lather up and shave. If you notice the razor isn't doing a great job after a while, hone it. That's it.

Just an FYI to new members. The no spam part of Wet Shaving (No Spam) is to prevent using these posts to sell products.

Wife got me a badger brush and bowl set for Christmas two years ago, and I haven't looked back.  Currently using a Dovo shavette, and keeping an eye out for deals on a 'real' straight razor in the $40-50 range.  Look forward to the discussions here!

I made this shave stand over the weekend in my shop; all done with hand tools.  Poplar wood with an antique walnut stain.

So, how many guys hear shave their heads?  My hand goes up!  I have a goatee, but I shave the rest of my face using generic five-blade razors and Barbasol shave cream.  I shave my scalp using Headblade and Headslick.

I've really enjoyed the ritual of wet shaving over the past several months.  My wife seems to enjoy the aftershave and smooth neck and cheek.  I'll never shave my beard but trimming with the DE razor is great.

Been using a shaving brush since I was in my teens

Just picked up a 1948 Gillette Super Speed on Ebay in superb condition.  Can't wait to lay my hands on it.  Pics to come upon arrival.
