To shave! My grandpa used to always use a straight razor. When he passed away ~10 years ago i wanted his razor. Unfortunately it was thrown out.

I finally bucked up and bought myself a straight. Got a strop and brush coming as well. No more going through razor blades for me. Also shave soap is a lot better for your skin than shaving cream.

Picked this one up as my learning/backup razor. A nice straight runs $300+. A disposable blade cannot compare with a straight shave.

Also it is just manly to shave with something that can easily kill a man.

This thing cost you over 300 dollars? So many boxes of RH...

No. This is a used one. Has a few minor blemishes (scuffs on handle, etc, functionally is 100% fine). I spent $33 on this one.

But yeah, a nice NEW one runs upward of $300 for anything worth buying. Razor blades are like $15+ for 4 blades...my hair is thick and coarse, blade doesn't last me more than a few shaves.

Also there is the environmental impact and just the joy of shaving with a blade.

Every one of these things is made by hand.

If you are not a believer go to a nice barber shop in your area and get a straight shave. I am stoked. This is my way of making up for not being able to buy RH yet lol
