Shahan replied to Robert M Cox's discussion straight razor shaving is it worth the cost
"Hi Rob,   If the razor was sold as "shave-ready", then you should be able to shave with it right out of the box. If not, you'll need to strop it. And if you need to strop it, you may well have to sharpen it first. You can buy a…"

"Robert, Glad to hear you picked up a straight razor! There are two types of pastes used in straight razor shaving. One is a strop paste. This is basically leather conditioner for your strop. This generally isn't necessary unless your strop goes…"

"So I bought a straight razor and a strop.  Do I need to buy the composite paste for it or is it ready to use.  If the blade is honed already I don't need to use the strop yet, right?"

"The thing I like most about wet shaving is the ritual and the skill of it, and you get some degree of both whether you're using a DE razor or a straight razor. If you somewhat enjoy shaving now, learning the art (maybe task is a…"

James L replied to Robert M Cox's discussion straight razor shaving is it worth the cost
"You are correct when comparing to a crappy, modern cartridge.   However, there is little difference in cost or quality of shave when compared to a DE razor.  I spent $15 on a gross of blades that have lasted me a year and a half so far,…"

Stephen replied to Robert M Cox's discussion straight razor shaving is it worth the cost
"Certainly it's better for you but don't just do it because eventually it's cheaper than the most expensive disposable razors on the market. I'm currently saving money on razors but spending more on better quality shaving…"

Chris Bialobrzewski replied to Robert M Cox's discussion straight razor shaving is it worth the cost
"You will make your money back in the first year of shaving. With a straight razor you never have to replace the blade, which means that if you shave with the Fusion and a pack of replacement cartridges cost $50 then most. Likely in the first year…"

Chuck Knight replied to Robert M Cox's discussion Barber School vs Cosmetology School
"There are plenty of barber schools in Dallas, and they're licensed differently than cosmetologists.  As I understand it, the hygiene standards alone, are far more stringent for barbers.  And only barbers are allowed to use a…"

Timothy F. Miller Jr. replied to Robert M Cox's discussion straight razor shaving is it worth the cost
"If you are referring to the cost being worth it, it depends on how often you shave and how soon you are looking for return on your investment. If you have a thicker beard and need to replace your blades each time you shave, that will also play a…"

Shahan replied to Robert M Cox's discussion straight razor shaving is it worth the cost
"Straight shaving. Is it expensive? NO.   Is it worth the cost? YES.   If you can buy all (or most) of your stuff second-hand, you can save a lot of money. Not a single piece of shaving-kit that I own, apart from the brush and the soap, is…"

The Crypto-Catholic Background of A Jamestown Leader

A Skeleton, a Catholic Relic, and a Mystery About American OriginsA newly discovered artifact buried with one of Jamestown’s most prominent leaders suggests he could have been a crypto-Catholic.The finding is a historical bombshell, unearthed in a grave on the site of what was once the first church built at Jamestown.
