    also my great grandfather was a barber so we have a bunch of straight edge razors would that be worth a try or would i end up being like that guy above.
    they probably all would need to be sharpened and cleaned and disinfected.
    Straight edge is a different animal I have one and found it too time consuming to bother with. If they were mine I'd post pics to once of the razor forums to find out what I had then send them to be sharpened and cleaned by someone who knows what they are doing.

    get this to figure out what blade you like.

    http://www.westcoastshaving.com/DE-B...dard_p_17.html

    then maybe this to start with to figure out what you like/don't like
    http://www.westcoastshaving.com/Merk...azor_p_30.html

    then go to badgerandblade.com and there should be plenty instructional material. Main thing is just keep the face wet and don't apply pressure,

    I was a first timer and I did fine but it took me a little longer than a normal shave. I have a little beard/ chinstrap whatever you want to call it. It took awhile to see how close I had to get. I applied shaving cream to my whole face but my neck dried up by the time I attempted to shave it. I washed it off and put a little more on and finished up. I think I might get that barbershop one that guy posted the link too. I really never get razor burn beside around my collar area. I didnt get any this time might be a good thing although I wasnt pressing hard like I usually do with the mach 3

    I have to get them cleaned up first and sharpened. I used one once when i was about 20 but it wasnt sharp as it should be. they are a little pricey and not sure if i want to take the time to maintain it. definitely will put them on display if can. i remember he also had a set of clippers but they worked by hand. like like some hog ring pliers handle with a clipper blade on the bottom.

    It's generally build quality. they range plastic to high polished chrome and exotic handles. Some you can adjust the blade angle stuff like that.

    I'm not selling this nor am I encouraging anyone to buy this razor. However this is all the safety razor you'll ever need and it's last the rest of your life. I've used one for years. The adjustability is worth it. Not everyone's facial hair comes in the same. This allows you to change the angle of attack so to speak to find one that works best for you. Then try different brands of razor blades. You can find people selling sample packs that contain many different varieties.

    The straight razor is an art. You have 100% constant control of the razor's angle with your skin and can constantly adjust it as you go. Sharpening a straight razor is a learned skill. I have several different straight razors and generally use the safety razor. I get equal results and don't cut myself nearly as often.

    The next most important thing you can do it throw away your foam shaving cream in a can. It leaves your skin too dry under it and makes it tougher to get a good close shave without irritation. Buy a silver tip boar brush and a good quality shaving cream. I've used many differnet varieties but prefer http://www.detailsformen.com/proraso.html products the best. They're inexpensive and work really well for me. Plus I like the mentholated feeling.

    And good blades can be had real cheap. Buy a billion of them and you'll be clean shaven well after the end of the world LOL. Oh and as for "cream" for the lazy (like myself) I've found that the King of Shaves gel works really well, so does their oil. It's at CVS and I've found a different brand of oil that works well at Walmart.
