Wet Shaving Acronyms

Wet Shaving Acronyms

Relax, we’ve got you covered.

Upon first perusing a popular wet shaving forum, one can get a little overwhelmed if not totally flummoxed . This is mostly due to the secret language that wet shavers speak in. We offer you today the Rosseta Stone of Shave Speakso noobs so you may breathe again, and get back on that wet shaving horse. We suggest you print it out and pin in it to the wall above your computer, so the next time you are on Ebay, Reditt (wicked_edge), Badger & Blade.etc, you will be in the know! Now I need to get my SOTD underway. Good Luck!
