How to Shave with a Straight Razor

How to Shave with a Straight Razor

An old-fashioned tradition, straight razor shaving was once a professional service confined to the barbershop. Men would visit the barber for a haircut and receive a straight razor shave along with it.

Has Everything Good Already Been Invented?

Has Everything Good Already Been Invented?

Some people believe that all the good stuff has already been invented. I don’t believe that is true. There is plenty of room for new ideas and inventions. However, there are some things that don’t need to be reinvented. One of these things is the wheel. Another is the razor.
