    Red face Anyone ever had a straight blade shave?

    I've been dying for one, but I don't wanna die getting one lol.

    Anyone care to share first hand experience? I remember a few years ago reading about a Russian woman who did it at a shop inside the Wynn or something in LV.

    Let's hear about your experiences, I would love to get it done!

    the closest shave that you will ever get.

    be sure that it is a "hot towel" shave though. much more relaxing.

    get it from an old barber....dont ever ever ever let a woman with a straight razor near your face.

    All of this is very true!

    I use a straight razor now for like 3 months and its the best shave there is. Really, nothing comes close!

    I just opened a thread last night about an amazing product that prevents razor burn:

    Well the thing is I have only used a razor once or twice in my life. I've been doing it electric since day one, and unfortunately, it's nowhere near as good as it could be. For some reason I'm scared to cut myself with a razor lol. Let alone a straight blade...

    It just takes practice and some blood

    Its really not that hard, you just have to be really careful!

    Godfather, you are bald and your facial hair is incomplete in most areas. Why would you be interested in a straight blade shave? I have a 3 pack of Gillette ProGlide Power Razor you can use for that incomplete low watered CHEETA PET thing you got going on called a beard the other day.

    Art of Shaving has stores that you can get a straight shave at... check the link above and see if you have a store in the area. Highly recommend getting the facial with it since you are paying for a professional service. Your face will thank you, you woman will love it too
    Think the last time I paid $80 for full service....

    I think we are here to achieve something. It's one life.
    Whatever you do, keep yourself and people around you happy.
    Even if you can't help them, don't harm them. I think that is pretty much life. Keep going, don't stand.
    You got nothing to lose. Keep going, it's life.
