Straight Razor and Beard Grooming General /SRBG/ 19/08/21(Wed)17:44 No. 3467

I use a straight razor for my beard. Clean lines. Great for really getting the big hair off. I use disposable blades instead of sharpening and stropping a fixed blade. Got a gift card to one of those shaving places for my birthday and I have been learning a lot ever since.

Anyone have any questions and want to post any straight razor and beard grooming questions, post here.

Looking to get one of those beard shapers. Combined with a straight razor and you can be unstoppable.

The razor is a Dovo Silver Shavette Satin Finish Straight Razor

DOVO Shavette 10 Blades is what you search on amazon for the blades.

This is the packaging of the blades.

You are supposed to snap them in half, but I don't

The plastic holder piece that you slide into the end of the straight razor holds the razors and the little bumps that are in the middle of the razor snap into tiny holes in the plastic.

I use a beard oil that has tea tree oil in it, that way if I get jock itch or scalp itch, I can add a bit of the oil and feel nice.

The beard oil is, however, only for keeping the blades from rusting. When using a single blade, I tend to use it for about 20-30 shaves. All I do is keep it oiled with beard oil and it keeps it from going rusty. I do the same thing with the elbow of the straight razor.

I store the blades in a small plastic pouch that also holds the straight razor. I just spread the oil on the straight razor and the blades with my fingertips.

for my mustache, I am trying to grow it out as a handle bar, I don't use a wax because it's not long enough to keep in a suitable chunk.

I use beard wax to keep my beard and eyebrows smooth.

With all the oil, I wash with a on-the-shelf not otc 10% benzoyl peroxide wash, and in the shower I use an apricot scrub. You will get greasy with all the oil, so be careful.

The Beard Mate is something that I think is pretty awesome. You can put it on your face and shave around the plastic to shape your beard with the straight razor.

The best thing for shaving that I have experienced is not the brush and the cup and soap, but Dr. Carver's Shave Butter. It was from a kit that someone got me for Christmas... So maybe Dollar Shave Club? I don't really know, but the reason that I use a shave cream or shave "butter" is because I can see what I am doing. When you use a shaving cream with a brush and a cup and soap, then you make a thick white lather and you risk cutting yourself if not careful.
