Straight razor shave from a barber

What Fulfills You? Finding Beauty In Unlikely Places

It always gives me a clean smooth shave that my wife enjoys. What I enjoy about shaving is that it forces you to be mindful. If you aren’t paying attention before you know it you nick yourself and a little blood starts pouring out. Shaving requires complete focus and being present to get it right. Otherwise, you get bumps and burns on your face.

To me, nothing beats warm water on my face in the morning with some sweet smelling soap all lathered up and a nice clean fresh shave. I highly recommend a double edge safety razor with a good set of blades from your local barber supply or from River’s Edge Cutlery
