Learning Curve is Over:

When I took my 2 month hiatus from straight razor shaving a few months ago, I was extremely frustrated and annoyed at that time. But after sticking with straight razor shaving and watching a few YouTube videos, I'm happy to announce that I have officially gotten over that initial learning curve and it was worth it. Now my savings are really going to start piling up because once you buy a straight razor, a strop and a stone you're set. There's nothing else to buy with the exception to a brush which I already have and shaving soaps and/or creams which I already have and then some. My costs per shave are beyond low now. With a Gillette Fusion Pro glide cartridge, it was costing me $2.74 per shave. With a DE or double edge safety razor that cost lowered significantly to $.08 cents per shave. With a straight razor, they get even lower because you don't have to buy any replacement blades like you do with a DE or double edge safety razor. So basically once I get my first honing stone, that'll be the last piece of hardware that I need to buy period. I ought to get 4 more straight razors to go with the 3 that I have so I would have one for each day of the week which has been recomended by many.

Man that shave was epic, wow. For today's brush, I went with my RazoRock Plissoft 24 mm synthetic  and the lather it builds is awesome ...
