    This was a recent birthday gift from my two best friends. They're a couple so they do one really nice gift instead of two smaller gifts and I certainly benefited from that! I've only shaved with it 4 times so far but man it is a pleasure to use. Awesome hollow grind, beautiful edge, and elegantly rugged green canvas micarta handle.

    You are a braver man than I, Ausge. The only time I ever got close to trying that was one time when I got really good news prior to shaving, didn't realize that I did a half-somethinged job shaving, and went to work. My boss was like, "What's with your chin?". So I had to "shave" with a, fortunately, really sharp Buck 110. But to do it again with a real deal straight razor, I don't think so.

    I think it's just a matter of practice. I fairly regularly do some quick and dirty shave job with a sharp pocket knife so I am somewhat used to the mechanics of it. However, the difference in a really sharp pocket knife and an insanely sharp, paper thin, hollow ground razor is WORLDS of difference. The straight razor is so sharp it literally requires no force at all and thus makes it safer. As far as I can tell, as long as you don't push into yourself or slide the blade sideways you CAN'T cut yourself.

    My wife had to use a straight razor on a balloon to get out of school way back when, but I don't know that I'd let her do that to me.:frantic:

    Back home my Uncle had to shave a peach. Practiced or not. God bless you, I'd cut myself for sure.

    I've had a backlog of leather projects. One big benefit has been increasing my EDC inventory of fixed blades by creating sheaths that work really well for pocket carry. No straps, no loops, nothing to get in the way of a quick retrieval. The only additional design feature is a slight flair near the top of the sheath. This makes it easier to have a simple belt tuck, or to use a "frog" that allows left or right or even vertical/horizontal. Falling in love with my pocket fixed blades all over again.
