Get a Taste of the Straight from Whipped Dog
If you've ever wanted to begin learning how to shave with a straight razor, then you've probably spent a good amount of time looking at all of the different options there are for razors, and you might be salivating over the thought of a beautiful blade (with an equally high price tag).
But does it make sense to spend a chunk of change on a new top-end straight razor (that may still need to be honed before shaving, which is something difficult for beginners to do), when you can pick up a quality used razor that's been honed to shave-readiness, for a lot less money?
You might consider the second option, and take a look at what's offered at Whipped Dog:
"The prices are very low, while the quality of the straight razor shaving edge is very high. As sold, the straight razors are cleaned, but not buffed and polished as is sometimes done. This keeps the price down, and maintains the vintage look and feel of the blade."
I've tried brand new straight razors that haven't been honed to shave-ready sharpness (not knowing any better!), and it's a really frustrating feeling. So if I was going to go out and purchase my first one, or a gift for someone, I would be looking through the selection of blades at WhippedDog.com. For around $40, which includes shipping, you can have a razor ready to meet your face.
And then, once you feel like you're ready to commit to shaving with the straight every day, go ahead and start looking at those one-of-a-kind razors...
