How to shave like your grandpa. | Okay, so I may not be the best one to suggest reading material on shaving since I am a lady and can honestly say I've only shaved my face once (...don't ask), but I did read this article on using a safety razor and it seemed to me quite helpful, so I am suggesting you give it a read.

Old Shaving Cream Bowl w/Brush (I soo remember as a little girl my daddy using a bowl and brush to shave with and the razor was not anything like we have today. It was a straight razor he had to open up by unscrewing the handle to rinse under the faucet. Pretty neat memory idea though...with a updated razor hanging on the pole. Cindy)
