Safety Razor = My Best Shave

Posted on September 28, 2015 by quashnsa

After many years of shaving with a Gillette Fusion razor, a multi-blade system, I decided to move to the old-school approach that worked for my dad. Dad had a Safety Razor and double-edge blades. I have had a straight razor shave, and it was fantastically smooth; however, I am not confident that I would take my time and shave slowly. My only option after removing the straight razor idea was to use a safety razor.
