Re: Teach your children well

Thanks for the great replies. Yes, I don't want to push him into anything, but do want to let him know that he has a shadow across his upper lip that reveals he's not a 10 year old anymore, as much as he'd like to think so. He likes to look good and is just starting to show an interest in girls, I d...

Teach your children well

As a parent of a 15 year old boy who's starting to get a line of peach fuzz across the top of his lip, I feel it my duty to introduce him to the proper way to take care of his facial hair.

Traditional SE wet shave - reviews and recommendations here!

I searched all over the forums here recently while in NYC on business, as well as on other similar sites and came up mostly empty.

Re: Suggest a good solid quality DE razor

Thanks, I considered SE razors, but dismissed them due to the difficulty of finding blades easily. Often when traveling TSA will remove any blades I have, but I can always pick up spares at any pharmacy or drug store. SE makes that much more difficult.

Suggest a good solid quality DE razor

I've been using and loving a Merkur Progress for the last 10 years, until it recently just fell apart.
