"I just used the sic isles that came with my kitchen knives. The blade is pretty thin, so they cut right through it. I had to sharpen them afterwards though, but no big deal."

"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…"

"What did you use to trim the razor? It seems like a solution that will work well for me as well, as I think the main problem is it not being aggressive enough. "

"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…"

Using a three-piece safety razor

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

"What is normal? I LOVE multitasking. The more I can do at once, the better. Work, eat, phone, drive, shave, poop. I've tried mixing all of them simultaneously."

Oops!

I saw a young man today wearing a tee shirt that was a bit confusing -- until I figured it out.  His tee shirt had this on the front:MESSIAHWRESTLINGI finally figured it out: He goes to Messiah College and is on their wrestling team.  (It sounded like it was Messiah-wrestling, which reminded me of Satan!)  ;)See More

Out to Build Bridges

This is a LGBTQ+ group.  All men are encouraged to join, including straight men.However, unlike the already established AoM group "Gay and Bisexual Men", this group is wide open, no privacy settings enabled.  The overall purpose of the group is to encourage conversations between the straight and non-straight communities.  This already happens in AoM, but it is scattered.  And it can't happen in the private "Gay and Bisexual Men" group.Debate is expected, but this is for building up bridges not…See More
