I was browsing the forum last night and I caught a wild hair and decided I should probably shave it off.
I was looking through this grooming forum and I realized I have never been truly satisfied with the shave I get from my (old reliable) Gillette Sensor. On a whim, I decided to put a keen edge on the spey blade of a stockman and shave my face with it. It actually worked, so I said to myself, "who am I kidding? I am buying a straight razor." Fast forward to now... and the leap of faith has been made.
Currently in the mail:
-A Dovo 6/8" straight razor with a full hollow grind and black synthetic scales.
-A Simpson Persian 2 Brush
-A professional style 2" leather strop
-And finally, I bought some various soaps to try out (one bowl included).
This should cover everything to get me started right?
I will report back how everything goes for me. I am planning on using this set-up for shaving as frequently as possible. I get up automatically before dawn, so I have plenty of time for this kind of thing.
Why not, right?
