The Big Shave West 2: Turning Social Media Into Social Reality

We’ve seen many posts, pictures, and videos of the Big Shave West 2 (TBSW2), held at The Old Town Shaving Co. in Pasadena on April 23, 2016 published in social media platforms.

Taking a Fello For a Test Drive

    Ever since I’ve had eye surgery to correct my vision in the late 90s, I always wear sunglasses as soon as I step into daylight, especially while driving. I didn’t buy sunglasses before my surgery as I couldn’t even keep from losing my regular prescription glasses, let alone afford prescription sunglasses. I wore […]

I’ve joined several shaving-related Facebook groups, Google communities, bulletin boards, and a couple of Reddit forums since falling into traditional wet shaving a year and a half ago. Over time, I’ve gravitated […]

My First Year of Traditional Wet Shaving

  After 30 years of shaving with multi-blade disposable razors and canned gel, I took the dive into traditional wet shaving early last April. The impetus? A nearly random trip to The Art of Shaving (AoS). I say nearly as 12 years ago I had used an entire puck of Wilkinson Sword shaving soap and […]

Fifty Shaves of Straight

It all began on Father’s Day 2014 (June 15), when my wife and daughter gave me a gift of shaving soap (Ocean Kelp) and matching after shave lotion from The Art of Shaving. My wife knew a shaving-related gift would be a hit, although I love all her thoughtful gifts. The only shaving-related store where […]

Me, My Moustache, and I

  This article is a light read on my observations from growing a moustache. It’s the second moustache I’ve grown, but my first horsheshoe moustache. My first moustache was unceremoniously shaved off 3 years ago on account of being too itchy after 3 weeks. It seemed like I was spending all my time getting the […]
