    Default Fastest shavette shave???? (Video)

    My girlfriend thought I shaved "The fastest in the west" with a shavette. Thought I'd share.

    I never rush my shaves. I love every second of it and actually tend to drag them out as long as possible lol. Good handeling with that shavette tho

    Understood. I also take my time and love the relaxing effect I get from it, I dont feel the same about a shavette shave. I always use straights, ALWAYS! If I have to rush in the morning and dont have time, I use a shavette and this is what it looks like

    Gentlemen,

    Straight razor shaving is a colorful ritual, a lyrical voyage through one of life's great pleasures. It is not meant to be a contest for speed. It is not a bag of greasy fast food. Or a bottle of tasteless light beer. Or a dull conversation that makes you wish you were out digging a ditch instead. Of course, to each his own. If the man in the video hails his acrobatics as a shave with the straight razor, so be it. For me, I'll waste my time on a soft brush, a fragrant soap or cream, a loving strop and a straight razor that whispers love poems.

    I didn't know deterity with a sharp razor to the throat was shunned upon, forgive me. The man in the video would've been unpresentable and late for work, both are not tolerated. As stated above, I ONLY use straight razors, disposable, carbon, or SS. All have a purpose, the shavette is the "oh shit I'm late to work and needa a shave BAD" razor.

    I don't quite understand what you're trying to say in that first sentence. Although I think you infer from my comments that I shun what the man is doing. That's far from it. He can do whatever he wants. You can shave any way you want, however fast you want. As I note in my post, "Of course, to each his own." My post expresses my views on straight razor shaving. I am sure you have yours. That's how it should be. So there's really nothing to forgive.

    It's fast, thanks for sharing. But like you said it was a rush job, lots of irritation on the neck after that shave ;-)

    You sir deserve a better shave than that! I'm not much of a morning person and am usually rushing out the door so I shave in the evenings. I usually get pretty dirty at work so nothing is better than coming home, washing away the day and then enjoying a nice shave. I feel so relaxed and grounded after.

    Amen to that, brother!

    In any event, to the OP, thanks for sharing your vid. Though I prefer a leisurely shave, there are certainly days when I wish I could get away with a quick ATG pass and call it a day; alas, if I tried (and I have) my whiskers would laugh at my razor and I'd likely pay with irritation.

    It took a lot of "leisure shaves" to learn how to go that fast ATG. My leisure shave includes a hot towel, pre shave oil, nice long ATG passes with my 5/8 full hollow Thiers Issard followed by cold water, then aftershave. You guys talk like all I ever know is rush, but leisure shaves (a lot of em) are how I got to that point. Again let me stress I was late for work and only use straight razors. I needed to shave that morning no matter what. Are most of you saying you would've rather took the leisure shave and suffered possible termination from a great job? Shaving is important to me gents, but not that important.
