After ten years of shaving my head I let it grow out a couple of months ago and realized I don't really have that much on top. I decided today to start shaving again but still like the idea of growing it out. I was wondering if those in the group that don't shave and just trim your hair if you just buzz it down or go to the barber. I also wondered if you shave the fuzz you have on the top of your head, buzz it or let the barber take care of it.See More
"I am habitually addicted to nicotine, and I make no excuses for it. That being said, pipes are the least efficient way for me to put nicotine into my body. For me, pipes are a hobby, cigars are a treat, and other forms of tobacco are nicotine…"
For you pipe smokers out there, do you consider your pipe smoking a hobby or habit? I do realize that there could be overlap between the two. For me even though I usually only get one bowl a day I consider mine a habit. I started smoking a pipe back in 2008 when I quit smoking cigarettes. I needed something to take the place of a cigarette with my morning coffee, my last hurdle to quitting. Now I don't feel right if I don't get at least one bowl in the morning. I also smoke a pipe for the…See More
I was wondering if anyone in the group started shaving in the 40's or 50's and can tell me how men shaved back then. By the time I started shaving there were double edged disposable razors and canned shaving cream. Also I had to learn on my own. The reason I asked is this was an era when few if any men had any facial hair and most shaved daily. I can't see those men doing two or three passes to get a baby smooth shave and spending twenty minutes each day shaving. So I was wondering what razors…See More
"My dad taught me how to shave when I was in sixth grade. Pretty basic, canned foam, four blade razor, drag across face. I taught myself how to shave with a safety razor and eventually a straight razor."
"As an Italian I don't have much facial hair. Other then the cliche Mario looking mustache, the rest of my face grows in patches and does not connect (no manly beard). I'm currently growing a van dyke but that is as far as I can…"
"I can remember watching my dad shave when I was very young, but by the time I started shaving he had long been a full beard man. When my time came he gave me an old Norelco electric shaver that had been the last thing he used before he grew his…"
"My father has had a full beard all of my life and then some. I have never seen his chin. I learned to shave right from my barber that I met when I was 24 years old. Now I use a mug, brush, and a Sanguine straight razor or a Merkur safety razor. I…"
"Nope...I bought my own shaving supplies, and my dad actually put up the stops to KEEP me from shaving...so yes, I figured out how to do it alone. The only thing he said was to "learn" I had to "shave an orange" (yes, with a…"

"I'm sorry Daniel, just having a bit of fun.
Anyway, you can take a look at some of the medieval paintings and/or artifacts and get ideas for furniture and see how you can make or create some of your own. Personally I would take a look at…"
