A Guide to the Gourmet Shaving Experience
Every so often it's good to get put in your place. And today that's happening to me. I recently was emailed by the author of LeisureGuy's blog about a specific post he had written entitled A guide to the gourmet shaving experience. As I clicked over and watched my browser's scroll-bar start to shrivel, I felt that twinge of embarrassment set in. Here was a true shaving master.
LeisureGuy's post a guide to the gourmet shaving experience is easily the most broad and informative piece I've ever read on shaving with safety razors. He gently guides you through shaving creams, soaps, razor types, lather bowls, shaving brushes, how to hold a razor, how to clean a razor... - the list goes on. There's also personal experience, reader comments, PDFs, video, links, and more. "How's his punctuation," you ask? "Exemplary."
Here's an example of this style:
Using a safety razor puts you in charge, and going from a multi-blade cartridge to a safety razor is akin to going from an automatic transmission to a manual: you can get better performance by being more in control, but you must learn how to use it and practice your technique and pay attention to what’s going on.
LeisureGuy keeps this post up to date with the latest news, anecdotes, and advice. It's a living document. He's also recently published a list of recommended products for safety razor beginners. I have no doubt that page will grow to rival the other. Check back every so often and find out what's new.
