    Cool The "best" tip for all straight razor users.!!!!

    ALWAYS be wearing some thing from the waist down. Because if you accidently drop your razor it could cut something on the way down !!!

    Several years ago, A member told about shaving right out of the shower and dropping the blade.

    He said the only thing that saved him was it hit him on the spine and not the bevel.

    Since his post, I always have a towel between me and the sink.

    Once while honing, seated, wearing shorts, I somehow dropped a razor. I was already on the .1u diamond balsa. Made a rather deep and very long cut on my calf. Since then I have always leaned firmly into the sink when shaving so as to keep Wilhelm safe from a dropped razor.

    I have to admit I am one of those that get out of the shower, dry off and head straight for my shaving bush while still naked. I have heard it's a bad idea but seems more convenient and gives me a chance to admre myself

    I have heard horror stories about dropped blades so I am going to try to remember to take my shorts into the bathroom. I haven't worn anything so far pretty much because i forgot to take them in and didn't want to walk to the chest of drawers in the bedroom across the wood floor with wet feet.

    Actually that was Abraham but whatever. Point taken. Yeah I think I remember seeing that post. I think it was Richard if I recall because I remembered joking you don't want the blade to hit Richard Jr.

    now that I think about it, I think Richard dropped his in the sink and chipped it or something so that must have been a different time...all the more reason to take warning.
