    Default Razors make you dumb? (Idiocy Commeth)

    Hey hey beginners, get ready for some dumbth to happen.

    I'm most likely to do something stupid when i try to rush things. Don't rush the straight razor experience. I don't know if these guys were in a rush or not, but relax, take your everlovin' time, don't rush, and learn and do with diligence.

    As a beginner you get a free pass on a couple of dumb moves, after that though--you are required by tribal law to post about it.

    (you did read the rules didn't you?)

    There are some gems in that rough and it may do you/us well to learn from them and consider the treacheries of the path we have chosen.


    Enjoy the process and progress, don't let the stumbles trip you up.

    That idiot family is large and comes from a small gene pool too. Ask me, I have hit my head on the bottom of that pool diving in more times than I care to remember.

    I am convinced we all have moments of idiocy. Mine, (well, one of them), was to take my first perfectly good shave ready razor and attempt to strop it on the belt from my trousers, because my strop hadn't arrived. Promptly rolled the edge, and I am pretty certain the only whiskers I managed to remove were painfully pulled out, roots and all. But hey, you live, you learn.

    Razors don't make you dumb, they expose the stupid that's already there.

    I'm glad I didn't use idiot in my post on needing a band saw, or I would have made the list twice... that would have been a dubious honor.

    Great post, Wade. I'd add the Cut of the Day thread, but I can't find it...
