Shave of the day/night

We all have to do it. Unless you are MBI. :lol:

Post your daily or nightly shave here. If you hate your current shave maybe we can convince you to join us in the darkside of safety and straight razors.

Want me to put a quick kit together for you? There are a TON of different retailers but this is one I have used before and trust.

http://www.italianbarber.com/collections/safety-razors/products/razorock-mission-3-piece-double-edge-de-safety-razor
Good quality razor.

http://www.italianbarber.com/collections/brushes-vegan-synthetic/products/razorock-plissoft-synthetic-shaving-brush
Amazing brush. I have 2 of them. They sell out quickly though.

Then you need a soap or cream. There are a LOT out there with almost every different scent under the sun with prices to match. http://www.italianbarber.com/collections/creams-soaps
The Razorock P160 and Classic smell like marzipan and the scent is normally called almond. Any of these black tubs are a good cheap starter soap http://www.italianbarber.com/collections/creams-soaps/razorock?sort_by=price-ascending

It isn't needed but I would recommend an alum block to both stop nicks and as an after shave skin treatment. http://www.italianbarber.com/products/osma-75g-alum-block

That is really all you need. There are pre shave and after shaves, this and thats if you really wanted to get into it. The buy in is a bit expensive but with blades costing $0.10-$0.30 each vs $2-$6? for carts the savings start to add up. Unless you are like me and tend to buy a lot of stuff. :D

Now, for some videos.

Here is how to load and lather soap. You can lather in a bowl, on your hand or on your face. The brush I listed is a synthetic so it does not need to be soaked.


Lots of great videos by this guy


I would also suggest watching these videos https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL2DB6D82F52BA7608

After that it is time and patience. It takes time to learn when the lather is good and the proper angle for the razor and to not apply pressure when shaving.

Re: Shave of the day/night

For a starter check out Astra sp blades on amazon. They are like $11 for 100 and a better deal.
