    I learned to shave with one of the most wicked spike points I've ever seen...
    I think every one should learn with one... It teaches you patience and focus very quickly...

    Good Morning!

    I too, am thrilled with this thread as I'm always combing the internet for "Shaving Tips" to put on the website and my lack of experience in using a straight razor makes me a very poor candidate for judging which are good tips and which are lousy. and perhaps more important......"Which are actually USEFUL " ....... Besides they're just the standard "shave after you shower".

    I asked Lynn awhile back if I could put a link to SRP under the "Tip of the Week" column and he said.....yes ....and that has been taken of.

    I would like to know if you fine Gentlemen would mind if I gather up Straight Razor shaving tips from here and post them on the website ? I am more than happy to sign the authors name ( first only/last only) to give credit where credit is due....or not......I will always ask first.

    So the tip would go under the "Tip of the week" section and the the link to SRP is right under it......

    Would this be OK ?

    If you must listen to music while using a straight razor, don't choose the 1812 overture.

    I would like to add that screaming inlaws standing close behind you while you have a razor in your hand can make shaving difficult and also make you think evil thoughts.

    Thanks for the thread Nelson. Some good stuff there. The one about not shaving naked is important. I have never dropped a razor ....... yet but you can't be too careful. I wouldn't want my baritone to change to a falsetto.

    My contribution to the axiom collection would be my sig line. It is advice that has worked for me.

    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.

    This is exactly why I--in yet another example of role reversal in our marriage--tell my husband to LEAVE ME ALONE AND DO NOT COME INTO MY BATHROOM AT ALL when I am shaving. And I shut the door to keep the dogs and cats out, too.

    Not sure where "Lotus Land" is, but the above fact alone (going downstairs for tea with your wife), along with no mention that the tea was iced, lets me know that you are not here in Texas.

    Absolutely! I'm at the point where if I don't get it with 2 passes, maybe 3, I live with a tiny bit of stubble. It just ain't always worth it to go for the baby's-butt smooth.
