No, but let us know what you think of it.
Any of the gentlemen here use traditional wet shaving? I came home today with a gift (well several of them) waiting from my wife. She got me everything I need to get into wet shaving -- Merkur safety razor, Perfecto badger hair brush, Perfecto brush and razor stand, stainless steel bowl, Proraso pre-shave, Proraso Shave Soap, and Proraso After Shave. She also picked up some Feather blades, but from I'm reading, I'll need to work up to those. I think the last time I looked forward to shaving was when I was 13 because it was new!
So, anyone else on the board wet shave?
No, but let us know what you think of it.
Man that looks more like work, or maybe a hobby? I use my hair clippers with no guard and get it close and let it go until it starts to itch and whack it down again. I'm kinda lazy like that.
A driver’s license works in every state, so it’s common sense that a concealed carry permit should work in every state. If we can do that for driving — which is a privilege, not a right — then surely we can do that for concealed carry, which is a right, not a privilege.

Nope. I hate shaving so I grew a beard, but it is a nice neatly trimmed carve.
What is this "shaving" you speak of?
I don't always open carry, but when I do I prefer DeSantis.
I got my Dad's brush when he passed away and I think that I still have the razor put up somewhere also. I had thought about trying it but never have. Let us know how you like it.
"This is not a world in which one can turn the other cheek. Doing so does not avoid violence, but rather encourages it. The bad guys threaten, but they do not seem to want to get hurt. They should be taught that their presumed victim is more dangerous than they are. This is not a matter of weapons, but of will."

Been there done that. I still use the brush and shaving cream bowl. Have the razor, don't use it much any more. Spent to much time shaving the ole fashion way. Now I use a razor with disposable blades.Get yourself a jar with a tight fitting lid and fill it with rubbing alcohol. When you are done shaving splash it on your face. Just kidding. After you rinse your razor dip it in the rubbing alcohol then hang it on the hanger. This will displace the water and help keep the blade nice and sharp.

The 2nd amendment is not about hunting or shooting sports, it is about the citizens of this country having the means to protect themselves and the states from the tyranny, oppression, and misery of an over powering government. Modern rifles are a means for the citizens to stand up to an over powering government.
Life is short.
Make sure you spend as much time as possible
on the internet arguing with strangers about politics.
All my life. My father was not present at the proper time, so my Grandfather taught me about shaving. He was old school. He used the oddest razor. It sort of looked and folded like a straight razor, but used very odd non-standard razor blades. It's the only razor of that type I have ever seen.
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 now use my shaving brush to distribute oil on my firearms. After years of struggling and suffering with shave cream and a blade I switched to electric. I've since used Norelco, Braun and Remington. Remington is the Taurus of electric shavers and my current one. I like the portability and with a pre-shave it gets as close as a razor. Every now and again I'll get a bug up my butt and use cream and a disposable. A few of those and I run back to the electric...or grow a beard.
“Historically, freedom is a rare and fragile thing . . . Freedom has cost the blood of millions in obscure places and in historic sites ranging from Gettysburg to the Gulag Archipelago . . .That something that cost so much in human lives should be surrendered piecemeal in exchange for visions and rhetoric seems grotesque. Freedom is not simply the right of intellectuals to circulate their merchandise. It is, above all, the right of ordinary people to find elbow room for themselves and a refuge from the rampaging presumptions of their ‘betters’.” Thomas Sowell
