Why would I write a post about the manly art of shaving?
First of all, it might give you ladies (who have no idea what to get your man) a gift idea. I know how hard it can be to shop for a guy. They either want tools and expensive “toys” or else it’s socks, wallets, belts, slippers, ties, etc. This is a mid-priced gift, depending on the brand/quality you get. In the long run, it will also save a ton of money since the razors are so much cheaper than buying disposable razors. Of course you might want figure out if they’re even interested in this kind of thing. I already knew that Josh thought it was neat.
Second, it’s fun to see Josh dallying away at the sink, fussing with such old-fashioned items as a shaving brush, foaming soap, and a double edged safety razor. Somehow I love stuff from bygone years (although it’s getting quite trendy now…).
Third, I love how it all the paraphernalia looks by my bathroom sink. Silly reason, but true!
So, without further ado, here is Josh demonstrating the perfect shave:
The products I bought Josh and he loves:
-Tweezerman Men’s Shaving Brush (a cheap brush with great reviews on Amazon)
-Merkur Model 180 Long Handled Safety Razor (nice and heavy)
-Feather Razor Blades (very sharp, but gives a close shave)
-Escali Deluxe Chrome Razor and Brush Stand (which I bought almost a year later since it’s not absolutely necessary)
Josh loves shaving this way and would never want to go back. Maybe this is what your man would love too!
