Wow shaving with a razor cuts evenly and creates a vagina in each hair follicle.

I was told about this method a few years go and it seems to work when I remember to do it.

Thanks for the tip there Terry but I want to know how you fit into that tiny little shower behind you?

Okay, I've adopted a new technique ... not a conventional wisdom technique, but it does provide the most comfortable shaves I've ever had.

Heat the entire face with hot water as usual, leave lightly damp.
Apply an even layer of lotion over entire shave area. Better lotion is better of course, I use the better half's Nivea, pretty good.
Apply shave cream or gel directly over lotion. It's okay to mix them some.
Shave as usual


I can shave faster, closer, without the slightest irritation, burn, nothing at all. Started using this process almost a year ago, and it's worked so well for me that if there's no lotion, I have to get some before I shave.

Lotion step might not seem revolutionary, after all some gels have lotion in them, but it seemed strange to me at first ... thought the lotion would slow the blades or something, but there's no problems.

Hmmm, sounds like a good idea. My question is how does the lotion clog up the razor, that is, I'm thinking the lotion gets in between the blades and is hard to clean out between uses?

Try an old timey brush and mug with shaving soap in it, get the water nice and hot, later the brush up on your face making sure to push the wiskers away from your face. You can add lotion to the brush or mug if you want.

I have had the best and closest shaves with less irritation since I went back to a brush. Plus it is easier to clean the shaving cream doesn't get all over your hands and you don't end up washing it all down the drain. Plus the soap lasts a long time.

Have you tried this on your anus, yet? How would you rate the consistency in the technique from face to b-hole?

I am not sure which way Bronco Buff goes but if he plays for the other team, I am sure your penis will be completely satisfied with the entry smoothness. Just don't give us a review after your said encounter. :thumbs:

Got new electric trimmer kit and shaver (Norelco and Remington) for Christmas and used it once. Prefer it old school. Steak knife and warmed up butter. BAM.

Just bought this today. Should be here in 2-3 days. I don't trust myself with a straight razor so went with a safety razor.

I've been using the same one. It's awesome. Get a sample pack of different blades to find the one you like the best (there are definitely differences).

I do grow a beard every winter - I am sporting one now. But I also enjoy a nice shave.

I did a playoff beard this year. I shaved the morning of the Chiefs game, then just let it go. I had dreams of looking like ZZ Top on Super Bowl Sunday.

I didn't even wait until the next morning, after we lost to the Ravens. That nasty thing was almost mocking me.

I actually shave my head while leaving a trimmed beard. For a shaving oil I just use baby oil... a few drops mixed with a few drops of water works better than a lot of far more expensive shaving creams. Baby oil is cheap... a $1 bottle would easily last you years of shaving every day.

For razors I use the Dorco Pace 6 Plus: http://www.dorcousa.com/sxa5000-6-blade-with-trimmer-system-for-men/

While I'm sure straight edge or safety razors have their advantages, anyone paying for the overpriced Gillette cartridges and razors will quickly realize how bad they are getting ripped off if they try the Dorco Pace 6. It's actually a better razor than the Mach 3 and the handle and cartridges are far cheaper. I can get a lot more shaves out of one cartridge than I could with the Mach 3 too.

Yea...I realized after I had bought it that I might need blades so I had to go to Wal-Mart. Bought some cheap blades. Still a closer shave than anything I have used. I'm going to invest in some better pre-shave supplies and blades.

I can say from experience that those AOS thiers issard razors do not in anyway come shave ready from the AOS stores. I would suggest sending it out to get honed.

I know some people that can do it (usually costs around $20), or if interested I can get it ready for you (I'm pretty experienced with straights as I've sharpened over 1000 and made a few from scratch in my day). Shoot me a pm if interested.

Essential tremor (ET) is a progressive neurological disorder of which the most recognizable feature is a tremor of the arms or hands that is apparent during voluntary movements such as eating and writing.[1] This type of tremor is often referred to as "kinetic tremor." The tremor may also occur in the head (neck), jaw and voice as well as other body regions, with the general pattern being that the tremor begins in the arms and then spreads to these other regions in selected patients. Women are more likely to develop the head tremor than are men.[2][3] Other types of tremor may also occur, including postural tremor of the outstretched arms, intentional tremor of the arms and rest tremor in the arms.[4] Some patients may have unsteadiness and problems with gait and balance that are above and beyond that due to normal aging.[5][6] In addition to these motor problems, a variety of non-motor features have recently been linked with ET. These include anxiety and depressive symptoms as well as cognitive difficulty.[7] Recent studies have demonstrated that late-onset ET (onset > age 65) may be associated with an increased risk of developing dementia.[8] ET is one of the most common neurological diseases, with a prevalence of approximately 4% in persons age 40 and older and considerably higher among persons in their 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s.[9][10] Aside from enhanced physiological tremor, it is the most common type of tremor and one of the most commonly observed movement disorders.[11] Essential tremor was also previously known as "benign essential tremor", but the adjective "benign" has been removed in recognition of the sometimes disabling nature of the disorder. Although essential tremor is often mild, patients with severe tremor have difficulty performing many of their routine activities of daily living.[12][13]

By the way, that old dude in the video is right. I've been using his technique to get keep the blade clean and delay the wear on the edge of the blade and it works. It'll add quite a bit of time to your razor.

Yes it does by that description, sorry, my mistake. I looked back at my description, and I overstated the amount of lotion. What you want is first a hot-water face soak, then a marble-plus sized ball of lotion smoothed into beard:

Then cream and shave like always ... had nary a nick in many months.

Good, I'm on board ... because, is there a bigger racket than blades?


Which is the bigger racket?

___ Razor blades

___ Printer ink/toner

I'll also agree the blade on the arm trick works I've had the same cartridge going for a couple months now you just have to do it each time you use it is what I've found.

It looks like a safety razor with a few more whistles and bells. I bet works fine. I'm sticking with my Merkur though.

http://img24.imageshack.us/img24/1994/shavex.jpgThis may sound strange to most, but I've never ever used shaving cream, gel, lotion or what have you...
I shave with noting on my skin...
I always shave after taking a bath, that's the best time and everything is nice and soft...
Never had an issue and my skin always look great!

Whoa. My worlds are colliding. NFL world is colliding with shaving world.

I, too, use a double edge safety razor, brush, soap, etc.

This morning I shaved with a Muhle R41, Feather blade, Cella shaving soap, an Omega boar brush, and La Toja aftershave.
