The hot-lather, straight-razor shave is a traditional aspect of the barbering profession. Unfortunately, there are many shops out there that don’t offer this service any more, and most men have gone to the safety razor or electric razor for their daily shaving.
But there are still lots of straight razor afficionados out there…here are some pictures that our customer Jerry shared with us. He maintains a large collection of razors, and is an expert in honing, stropping, and refurbishing old razors. There are many forums on shaving, one of Jerry’s favorites being The Straight Razor Place forums.
