it also cuts your skin REALLY well.

okay, no XIV update today, maybe later on in the week.
today, I'd actually like to address any men who may be reading this. though, it can also apply to the women as well.

Men, you owe it to yourself to at least once in your life, experience a good shave with a straight razor. do it yourself, find an old-timey barbershop and have them do it, travel back in time to the 20s, it doesn't really matter, but just do it.
I picked up a set of straight razors on Ebay for cheap a while ago. now, they aren't the full on old-school kind, these ones have replaceable blades, but still, they perform much better than a standard safety razor, 5 bladed or not. but, to make it even better, I recently picked up some shaving soap, and one of those brushes. with the tree of them combined, it's the smoothest, best shave I've ever had. plus, no razor burn, at all, and i used to get BAD razor burn.
so, yeah, try it, at least once. maybe it's not for you, but at least you can know that you shaved the way your forefathers did. and that's kinda cool.

  1. Hm, I might try having someone do it for me. No way I'm doing it myself, though. I have extremely unsteady hands and I might accidentally kill myself :D
