    I love it because it's a time in the days I shave that is mine, I love it because you are forced in a indirect way to your fullest concentration and in today world it's helpful for my mind, I love it becuase it's about the only pampering I ever get,lol.. And I'm also a self confessed sharp object lover..

    I only wish I started earlier

    Been putting steel to stone since I was pre teen.
