Be a Better Man: Get a Straight Razor Shave
The Art of Manliness has been rockin' out the 'return to manliness' scene for some time now, and part of their keystone content last year was the '30 Days to a Better Man" series ('cause who doesn't want to be a better man?). On the very last day, men were instructed to go get a straight razor shave, with this listed under "Why Get a Straight Razor Shave":
"It's manly. When you get a straight razor shave, you can almost feel the testosterone increasing in your body. It feels cool to be taking part in a ritual that thousands of men from history experienced. Plus, in a world where women are pretty much doing everything men are, a straight razor shave is one of the few activities that is still completely and exclusively male."
I'm drawn to the straight razor, but for different reasons, I think. What about you? Why do you choose (or not choose) a straight razor?
