Leap of faith: First straight razor setup
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?
The only thing that we truly depend on for our lives is our mind. Everything else is just stuff that breaks.
