"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…"

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

AoM Manly Skills

I'm going to assume that other than camaraderie, most of you have joined the Art of Manliness so that you can perhaps learn some skills that you hope would make you a better man.  So in that spirit I am dubbing this thread the official "here is what I learned from AoM" thread! This is the thread where you can post pictures, progress, or stories about manly skills you learned and put to work from AoM! My first thing is I'm going to restore an old Axe Head that I dug up a couple years ago when I…See More
