    What is this shaving you speak of?

    It's been just over 22 months since I last shaved. I remember exactly the day because you never forget the first time you shave with a straight razor. It was the closest shave I've ever had and the fewest nicks. Before that shave, when I shaved somewhat regularly I would use a double edged safety razor. Either way it's wet shave only for me if I ever take up the art again.

    I would like to recommend Col. Conk's shave soap. Bay Rum is a pleasant scent.

    Definitely a hobby. I think a good shave will be after a shower and take about 15 minutes from what I'm looking at now. Going to give it a shot here in a bit...

    Good quality brushes last forever if cared for properly. It's harder and harder to find stuff. Caswell-Massey is a good source. If you travel you might like...

    I'll keep the Col. Conk's in mind when I run through the Proraso to start. Everything I read/see/watch says that this is kind of like your AR-15 -- you customize the hell outta it till you get what you like. So I'll be trying lots of stuff as I move forward through time.

    I prefer using an electric razor because I an not into pagan rituals (blood letting).

    Well, if shaving in the shower with a disposable razor and shampoo for lather counts. I prefer killing two birds with one stone, shower/shave. Saves time and I never have to buy shaving cream.

    I would also recommend getting a sampler if razor blades, one pack gives you several different razors to try. Makes finding one you like a little easier. EBay and Amazon are good sources.

    A sampler pack of blades will be what I pick up next to try out sword, derby, Gillette, etc blades.
