Great work. I spend alot of time re-reading this.

I do get this odd behaviour from the PDF file however. Whenever I minimize the file it resets to the title page <shrug>.

I'm using WinXP with SP2.

A gentleman called Luc Michon has just e-mailed me a French translation of the Guide. He has done it as a Word doc, and kept in most of the pictures, and even added or substituted some he thought were useful. The formatting has suffered a bit, but that be the fact I opened it with a Mac Word (v.X). I shall try to read it through (I had my last French lesson when I was sixteen) and if anyone wants will make it available as a download.

wow! that is an amazing document. i'm new to shavemyface.com but i have a straight edge that i got as a gift about 8 years ago that i'm terrified to even think about using. i still don't think i have the nerve but i'll definitely try the honing and stropping and then see how i feel...

great stuff!

There is a second french translation (by Ludovic Pinier) downloadable here.

Francophones might be interested in the site he is involved with for French straight razor shavers - here.

Wow, incredible guide. I can honestly say I've never seen a more informative document on the art of shaving.

Chris, I just got on your site today and discovered the guide as well. I've seen a shaving video or two, but I have to tell, you, that guide is GREAT!!! It shows all the steps of shaving needed to do the job right (which is important for us new to straight razor shaving !! ).

Great job !!!
