I used to use a electric trimmer but now im a Ultra-clean shave kind of guy
There's an art of shaving close to me, how much are the strait razors?
Always wanted to learn how do the trad shave
TBH get a safety razor, a Merkur, and buy blades, I recommend Feather, or if you want to go cheap, Sword I think
Straight are nice for cutting cool designs in your face and going to work covered in toilet paper balls, but not ideal.
Yeah I have a safety razor now, is there that much of a difference?
You can get a closer shave with a straight, but when it comes to time and maintenance...no thanks
I think I have this one
You can't fly with it, because fat non-whites at TSA don't read their own Director's message about blades shorter than 2 inches and they claim they have "discretion"
I dumped a box in the garbage because they're idiots.
same with my Tom's of Maine
You can fly with it and just not have a blade on it right? Or has the tsa ascended autism at this point?
but good luck finding blades when you land...
You can check it, but I NEVER check bags at airports...I don't trust the throwers.
I have a friend who works as a "ramp rat" at an airport, he and his wife both do it for the flights, and the pay is good. They educate their kids with the trips. He told me...."Never check bags ever" most of his coworkers are black, and union.
I was giving people straight razor shaves for over a year, then thought why not use one myself? It is a lot harder to shave yourself then someone else. Just have to start slow, one stroke at a time. I cut myself up good lol. Prol because I thought I could just do it. But there is a learning curve.
@V.Balboa - PA Is there some kind of starter kit? I picked up a few old straight razors. Then ran into what grains to use before using the leather strap to maintain the edge. Or maybe id I buy a brand new one, I wont need those different grain stones?
Leather strap ? .....Thats amateurs I fell for that crap when I first started but that is just for show not the professional way of doing things
@Attrition in the desert 160$ from The Art of the Shave New but shop around
@here are there any leather workers here? I have an idea for a project
Along the lines of traditional wet shaving... I highly recommend getting an open-comb safety razor if u have very thick, wiry stubble like I do... the mode I use is the muhle r41 I believe
Back in high school I REALLY wanted to learn how to shave with a straight razor, very classy and very manly I thought. Too bad I barely had any facial hair back then lol. I used disposable razors for a couple years, then bought a couple really expensive electric razors that I still use. I kind of still want to get a straight razor and learn how to use it though, if I remember correctly there were some cheaper places to get them if you shop around. I did actually buy a mug, brush, and soap, I think I only used it once or twice though lol.
I can't find an appropriate channel so I guess I'll ask here.
Does anybody know the proper way of filing a complaint with an auto manufacturer? I had an accident over the weekend and none of the airbags deployed.
Lawyer up I'd say. What do you drive?
It was a Nissan Skyline. I'd prefer to avoid relying on full legal action due to my employment and the issue of currently being out of the states.
Tfw can’t grow facial hair
@Sherlock Don't worry. Neckbeards, numales and soyboys have mostly ruined beards. I actually look better with a beard but I shave now just to continue my way out of soyness.
Can you get hair transplants for your face
But yeah at least im not a neckbeard
Wish i could have stubble though
lol get some minoxidil, or peppermint oil
Hair transplants usually come from the butt. You don't want that.
Dude are you serious lmfao
Gonna try peppermint oil
Raising testosterone levels also increases hair growth
