Really not a lot of work. Just have to be careful to start off and take it slow.

Nothing is as relaxing as a quiet shave with a straight after a long day.

Just take your time and speed will come. Some people say just start out with your cheeks until you get the hang of that but I went whole hog and did everything but I also carve vegetables for a living so working with very sharp and small blades isn't anything new to me

I can't justify the purchase yet, it would sit till I actually have the time to put towards daily practice... But there are a few I have my eye on... Maybe a Revisor... Maybe a Butch Harner Custom... Maybe just a Bergrisher Lowe...

Been a good while since I popped in here..

Collected a few more old straights.

Really loving my "new" one it's a Joseph smith & sons from approx 1860.

It just needed a hone and some elbow grease to get it whipped into shape.

Some of those old resto straights are just as expensive as a new one if not more! Seen the price for a Filarmonica 8/8 that's mint with the box?

A bit late to the party here --
I started straight shaving a few weeks ago. Currently using a Ralph Aust 5/8, with SRD Lime soap. Just started maintenance honing a couple of days ago using a Naniwa 5K, 8K and 12K -- that went pretty good on the RA using only the 12K, but trying to bring back a Pabst and Kohler didn't work so good.

Before straights, shaving was a chore that I enjoyed skipping on weekends. Now, I look forward to spending the time.

Just throwing this out there... pressing a shaving stick into your soap container without actually using a cheese grater is not a lot of fun... I ended up using a knife and slicing pieces and pressing em down... didnt work out all that well...
