Anyone ever used a straight razor?

  1. The kind Sweeney Todd used to kill people.

    There if you've never heard the story ^

    Recently I've been using a double edged safety which has been a great improvement on the cartridge razors I've used before (well beyond my carelessness when shaving without a proper lather causing a slight knick above my lip.) but I've been reading up about how these are supposed to give an even closer shave and generally be smoother so does anyone have any experience with them?
     
  2. Just on the neck and sideburns, bro.

    I heard they will work sweet for beards somewhere. Classic barber shop style.
     
  3. I would assume they would work better though, they are up in your face clearly. I would love to try that kind of razor, makes be feel like a gentleman. :boss1:
     
  4. I'd be scared.

    I'm babyfaced anyway, can't grow shit besides weak ass peach fuzz.
     
  5. Hell no i would never use that. This isn't 1940 bro haha
     
  6. You're not the only one lol, there is still a chance I'll pussy out before payday lol but the technique seems pretty simple to master, mainly letting the blade offer weight rather than pushing down.

    Made me lol but modern razors really don't work out too well for me, the shave is terrible with most cartridge ones.
     
  7. I bought a real nice one a few years back for $200 dollars and it gets my beard when it is looking dangerous haha.
     
  8. Yes I have. It takes a lot of practice, you must read and learn or have someone do it for you.

    ^ great website.
     
  9. I haven't, but I think I may get one. Although I can't really grow anything. [​IMG]
     
  10. Planned on reading up / watching loads of tutorials before I jumped in but I always find it's better to only research so far then going for it, always help me learn better once I understand the basics to actually do it if that makes sense.

    Agreed on AOM also, that's what really encouraged me to move to the DE lol.
     
  11. Used it, but will no more. Fuck it.
     
  12. GILETTE, THE BEST A MAN CAN GEEEEEET

  16. I use an electric shaver...Don't any of you use these? No cuts at all and fuck all effort :)
     
  17. Electric shavers are for boys. Men shave by hand.
