Roger that. Keep the fire from the beard. Check.

I was blowing fire with 151 on New Year's Eve. I made sure to dry off and wait between bursts.

Has anyone used a razorock open comb razor. I'm looking at them on Italian barber website and thinking of ordering one. They are getting pretty good reviews. From what I understand, they are plated brass like most of the vintage razors so I would think they should last a lifetime. For $15-$20 for a new quality razor, I might just have to give it a shot.

Can't lose much. Pick up about any of the Razorock soaps- I've heard good things but haven't tried any...

I got a used straight around 10 years ago. I have slowly ok very slowly been getting it ready for my first shave with it. I cleaned and polished it up nice then put it away as there was not a lot of info out there at that time. Now because of this thread I pulled the straight razor out and did some YouTube research. I bought some wet stones and did my first honing on it. I did my first shave with it last week and it felt like it wasn't sharp enough. I'm tring again tomorrow after honing again. I think the blade might be worn out to much to get it super sharp.

Go over to badgerandblade.com there is a lot of info to learn from and some really nice gents that do an excellent job getting them shave ready, and most do it for free. Then you know the razor is ready and you can work learning to use it.

I'm wondering if your bevel is off and it looks like it has a chip near the heel.

Beautiful razor. I would send it off and get it sharpened or find someone local for the first time.

A couple of days ago I unearthed a badger brush and soap I received as a Christmas present a few years back and thought, "What the heck?" (Coincidentally it was a couple days after I had read this thread.) So I broke them out along with an old safety razor I had from my grandfather. After the first shave, my electric razor got tossed in the bottom drawer of the bathroom cabinet.

So my question to the group is, is it unnatural to want to shave 2 or 3 times a day?
