There's a difference between fetishising and just thinking something looks cool. But hey, thanks crapping on my thread.
Nothing like a clean cut after one of those that is perfectly sharp.
Everyman should at least have had his shaving down old school style to remind yourself of a time nearly forgotten.
It was a more like a peaceful ritual of a morning than a chore like we treat it today.
That's some beautiful work, for sure!
I have a straight razor which is almost 200 years old, quite amazing using something that old.
My wife is a barber and uses a straight razor daily. Its fun to get a straight shave every now and then. Those blades look great.
I once had a very gay Hispanic barber "cut me up tight." It was hilarious, Im fairly rough around the edges but my absolutely perfect 2cm mustache and beard was a work of art...
My grandfather used to shave with a straight razor. The leather strop did double duty as a means of punishment. Good times.
I asked my barber once if he shaved with a straight razor. He said, "No f*cking way. One slip, you open up your neck and it's all over." Didn't make me feel real comfortable about him shaving me, but he does a great job and I haven't bled to death in his chair. Yet.
um those arent safety razors. Safety razors as the name implies have a safety component to them which keeps the blade from being exposed for
the purpose of , well, safety.
No, these aren't safety razors, that's the whole point of this thread
oh. i see...lol ,i havent had my coffee yet.
has anyone seen the show big giant swords? this reminded me of that
Those are exceptioally cool old razors!
But there's no way I would attempt to shave with one of those.
All those straights are modern, no historic razors looks like that.
So they've been relic'd?
Shaving is for girly men.
I wish women would stop shaving to look like little girls.
Nice razors...what's wrong with girly men?
I own about a dozen pre-1820 "wedge" straight razors and about the same amount of mid-1800s "meat chopper" straight razors. I've shaved with both types, but for daily use, I have a Wade & Butcher 8/8 that dates to the late 1800s and a relatively modern Thiers Issard.
do those things come with a coupon for a free tetanus shot?
I have never shaved with one of those. Dang it! I hate being a girly man!
edit: We need a really good girly man smiley.
I pull each hair out by hand. Like real men did before razors.
