Greetings!I have recently acquired a three-piece safety DE razor with brush from Mühle (Mühle Rytmo Black Fibre), and so far I am loving the experience. I have been wet-shaving every since I started…Continue
"I am planning on getting into straight razors eventually, but at first I want to master the art of making good lather and becoming more focused during the shave. I also don't want to discard the safety razor that I just bought, but rather make…"
"I'd recommend investing in a straight razor, while there's more risk of cutting yourself, the smoothness is unmatched. If its too pricey or you don't like the hassle of stropping, then invest in a razor blade holder which more often…"
"Hello. I've been shaving with a safety razor for over a year now. I started with a Murker 34C. It was a good shaver, but needed to be a little more aggressive. To help this, I took a used razor blade and trimmed the sharp edges off, and placed…"
"Check out phatboygeo from Shave Nation on youtube for DE shaving. . . he says to go once with the grain, once front to back, and once back to front (maybe there is another/fourth trip). Takes awhile but that is a close shave with a DE. If the blade…"
"I would expect the guys who are REALLY into shaving to start recommending you "graduate" to a straight razor.
The "safety" part of "safety razor" comes from having the blade holder guard against accidentally…"
Greetings!I have recently acquired a three-piece safety DE razor with brush from Mühle (Mühle Rytmo Black Fibre), and so far I am loving the experience. I have been wet-shaving every since I started shaving, but using cartridge razors from Gillette and recently Wilkinson Sword, which annoyed my skin and was a tedious experience. After some training, I am close to getting a pretty clean shave, but I feel I am using the safety razor wrong. Instead of locking the razor head completely, I loosen it…See More
"History has always been a great interest of mine, so this is something I have given some thought and practice to. I often look at history as a sort of deep time psychology. Psychology, anthropology, and sociology are able to look at limited temporal…"
I decided to put this question in the main forum, because if it was in a group like The History Buffs, there would be a smaller audience. Because everyone learns history at some point in his education, it is a matter that could be of interest to almost all members and not just a select few.So we all have learned some form of history in school, from local to national to the histories of far off lands and times. What is it that we learn from people of bygone places and times? There are some…See More
"First of all you are 20, so the feelings are natural and normal. Actually it is a positive sign that you are thinking and aware.
I am a lawyer. It took for years of college and three years of law school. I loved being in school. Your career has to…"
"Providing goes under responsibility which is a virtue for women and men alike. But there is masculinity and femininity. And those things set the genders apart. Thats not the same as manliness

"Iam far away from earning six figures, but i made the transition from beeing a blue collar worker towards beeing a office worker.
Alltogether both sides do have their disatvantages and advantages. I made the change for a multitude of reasons. Some…"
"I don't know what you mean 'more' masculine. What is more masculine than providing a good living for your family? Manliness doesn't come from what you do, it's more than that. I know really manly business…"
"It sounds like you think white collar is all dull and less than manly. It can be, but doesn’t have to be. I spent time at two huge corporations, and yes, they were what I would call stodgy. Now, I’m at a small company…"
""Koreans are not enslaved."
I think that you're just thinking about South Korea there Will. From all the reports I've seen North Koreans are enslaved by their own government pretty damn well. If Koreans were some…"
