ALWAYS  take yourself too seriously, and happy shaving!

Hi!  We’re hopelessly, obsessively devoted to straight razors.  Some folks dig the odd approach, but more loathe it.  While it may seem a bit awry, the site’s ~easy to find since 2009 and always terribly honest.  You might learn good and bad things of stock likely untold elsewhere.

We hope you agree (by voting via $) that unique written/photographic content’s as similar to in-person service as the ‘net allows.   Also, we’ll throw jokes in on your content, hoping u laugh, and tip (buy/not buy, no getting laugh = hurts worse); you’ve already been exposed!

Carbon steel open razors require a steep, lengthy learning curve to reward, in shaving/stropping/honing alike, as well as a high-maintenance anti-rust relationship (or none at all) depending upon your locale.   They’re not for everyone, especially a born-to-internet majority population.  But at any age, this is truth;  if you enjoy challenging-rewarding hobbies/pursuits (more extreme the feeling’s duality causing interest), you’re a candidate for straight razor shaving.   Hitting a homer w/ a str8rzr you’ve honed and stropped is a uniquely-satisfying sensation, an aftermath of contentment hard to shake or conceal for hours.   You’ll not normally hit a homer, and you’ll know where you erred.  Whoop dee do; big difference in saying/doing here, and that’ll captivate you, ‘cuz yer certain yer capable.  Everyone’s got explanations for their sub-pars.  Straight razor shaving’s like playing the same old song on the same old violin forever and finding it permanently challenging, no matter how long you’re in that damn cell…but on the tries where you master it note for note, even the warden’s heard clapping over the appreciative din.  It makes you feel like you were born to do it, and it’s just a knife for shaving your face.  You’ve been warned; is it for you?
