Straight razors are superior to anything else on the market. The offer the reuse-ability of an electric with the closeness that comes from honed steel. While the price may seem intimidating at times, consider what you're spending on safety razors and make the practical choice. Best of all, if properly cared for you can pass one down to your son, it's a razor that lasts longer than you do!
oh man, this is great. back to nature and works so much better than safety blades.
I'm a DE razor user myself (hooray for never buying another $20+ set of cartridges again), but my girlfriend's brother swears by straight razors. Do you sharpen it before every use?
No, you only sharpen a straight razor if it becomes worn or damaged, after every use you strop it. This realigns the blade and keeps it from wearing down. The blade of a razor is very thin and fragile and over sharpening can effectively ruin the blade. There is plenty of straight blade information on the net if you're looking for more detailed use and maintenance instructions.
