    So there has been a couple of shaving threads before, but none dedicated to straight razors. So post your pictures, questions, reviews, pre-shaves, aftershaves, techniques, tips, tricks, etc...

    If I didn't have to shave for work I would be creating a beard thread.

    A nice cut-throat is on my list, but I haven't sprung for one yet. Gotta read up on which ones are worth the coin and which aren't.

    I carried one to my high school graduation, just in case they decided not to give me my diploma at the last minute. Don't tell Mr. Wienicke (he wasn't a big fan of mine, anyway; something about wrapping a pair of 1/2" ball bearings in the pink sheets of the underground news paper I was on... :D )

    Straightrazorplace has a really good FAQ and beginner section. I spent some good money on a Giesen & Forsthoff but I wanted quality and shave ready. Also check out Dovo my father uses one and I hear nothing but good things about them. Were both fans of Proraso shave care products. My brush is a cheaper entry level brush, forget the brand got it for around 30$?

    @SAKPlumber I'll have to dig up a picture I refused to cut my hair or shave for a good solid year before I enlisted. I miss it.
