    That's how it's done right there. Still, I would like to see a few minutes of footage about 5 min after that shave... I bet he's beet red.

    An avid shaver, that's for sure.
    Based on the grating sound his razor still produces during the final passes, I don't think he went for a very smooth shave.

    OK, I only have 2 days of growth, but I heated up a cheap brush like he did, and RIPPED out a shave like he did. I have to say, heating the brush and water like that works pretty damn well!

    Looks like I learned something today...thanks German (I think) dude!

    Not a smooth one and not a confortable one either for sure... but he was shaving at the speed of light! I was freaked out by the sound of that. And only 7 strokes on the strop?! That's a good razor that is!

    I did notice that too... any thoughts on that, Joe? Can anybody chime in and add something to this cookery technique? Thanks... and by the way... I take it that the super-duper-faster-than-than-the-speed-of-the-sond-the-razor-makes gentleman is not a member here, right? Doesn't he make us feel... bougeois?!

    I have a great deal of trouble with this video. This is why:

    1. He takes NO care in his technique at all. Watch the angle of the blade again. It varies WIDELY and RAPIDLY between 0 degrees and 90 degrees to the skin. Its a farce.

    2. The video is obviously sped up ever so slightly. The shave likely took 5 mins and not the 3 and a half minutes the video claims.

    3. The razor is not stropped well at all. Unless he has done some pre-video stropping then he needs alot more work on it there. He gave it, what, 5 strokes on the strop?

    4. The guy seems to wildly throw the razor over his face with no care to the direction of his beard. He doesnt take his time. As a result he cuts himself 3 times.

    So forgive me but no, this is not what I would call a good shaving video. And before you say it I will put a shave video up if thats what it takes. But not until after the SRP:UK meet (when it makes its debut).

    Hey man, we ARE the shaving bourgeoisie here... I have read on Badgerandblade that "cooking" the brush in boiling water is a big part a super great shave though. I just never tried it myself.
