Return of the Old School Shave

Cut and paste.jpgWe've got so many choices now for shaving - new styles of electric razors, wind-up razors, cartridges, safety razors - that a guy could pick a different method for every day of the week.

One cool thing I'm starting to see is a trend toward the retro shave. More men are starting to choose a safety razor for their daily shave, and the straight razor is making a comeback as well.

From the New Britain Herald News:

"In the long-term, the old-fashioned razors are more economical. The metal blades, which are good for about five shaves, are inexpensive. And there's less waste. Razors last for years, not like the disposable plastic shavers that end up in the landfill after a few shaves. The blades are even recyclable.

"America has a disposable, throw-away society."

What's your preference? Help me out by answering this shaving poll:
