    Default Shaving Demonstration Video starring Yours Truly

    at the request of my protege, shampoo. had to be split into 2 parts due to length, sorry. I did it as quickly as I could while being thorough.

    ETA: equipment: razor by spazola (dude, that double bevel is so sweet, just floats thru whiskers like they're not even there), classic brand lavender shave cream made into uber lather by adding glycerine. stropping was done before the video with my big redneck strop, and the uber lather was made just offscreen with my 28mm homemade silvertip in a redneck scuttle. aftershave was homebrew bayrum, of course.

    An impressive tutorial! You communicated well, and I really liked your stressing the "light tough" many times. I agree, you can't stress that enough to newbees. Another impressive comment about your demo is that you provided and talked about how you do XTG on the neck and cheek, especially how the do the "slicing" motion on the neck. I am sure this provided a number of guys with perhaps another choice of how they can do this.


    Good job!

    The freeze-frame image from your first vid looks surprisingly similar to your avatar! The crossed arms in place of the crossed razors, of course...
