    Would 20 hail maries be enough? I'm sure my GF will kill me as soon as she finds out so I want my sins absolved by that time...

    Probably not. You may need a month of noveenas!

    About a week ago I used my DE and was surprised how many more strokes it took to shave my whole face. It felt like it took forever!! So if you have the technique down, it's completely possible to shave faster with a straight. But +1 on the lazy bum, I have that problem too sometimes...

    The gods of the straight razor may be angry but the DE gods be smilen. I have a Futur and LOVE it. Playing with the straights but the Futur is my go to razor for the BBS shaves. For me its the gold standard of comfort and closeness, its what I measure the straights to, there coming close but not there yet.

    They'll probably want an Act of Contrition, too. If your girl goes ballistic over it, then throw in a prayer to St. Rita, the patroness of impossible causes. Or maybe St. Jude.

    May God have mercy on your soul.

    Well she didnt find out I had a new razor.... yet..

    The last week I only shaved with the Futur (3 times) just because I was pretty busy and a DE is pretty easy if your in a hurry.. She did see me shave with it but she didnt notice I was shaving with a new razor.

    So I think all my prayers where heard by the gods and my sins where absolved.
    The shaves where pretty good BTW..

    I'm still living life in sin....

    Since the baby was born in May I've only shaved with a straight twice..Just cant find the time to hone the razors..

    At least I do enjoy the shaves with the DE(the futur works pretty good for me) and the shaves I use the straight are pretty good.

    Maybe in a couple of weeks I will be back to the straight.

    There is no sin in spending large amounts of money on razors and shaving stuff. Especially if you don't get caught. To that end I would recomend a seperate account into which you can syphon money. When your wife eventually finds out about your secret account just tell her it is so that I can supprise you with presents.
