Pinochet is an idiot
I have been using exclusively safety razors with shaving soap for over a year and I really really do not at all miss multi blade modern razors even a little bit. I occasionally have to use one in the field for work as a soldier and I tell you I really miss my safety every damn time. So much the better shave. Takes a few minutes longer, maybe 3 or 4 tops, but I feel more proud, like I put something into it. Like building your own deck or shed. There is something artisanal about the process and I come out feeling smoother and my skin feels more fresh, as though there was never hair there to begin with. So really, you save a fortune on razors, you learn a skill that makes you feel like a real damn man, you look like a boss and fascinate women. For real though, women are blown away by this shave. My girlfriends and liasons have all been just riveted to my ablution routine. Your face feels all the better when you are done and you come out all around a winner in the end at the cost of maybe a few minutes of prep time a day, which... honestly I think is more from me using specific soaps than anything. What I like to do is use a good soap like Kent, Prorasso or Razzorock. Use a mug to lather in with a badger brush, do not do this on your face... I know there are people who do but... come on. Apply generous amount to all undesired hair. Shave AGAINST the grain first. Rinse and then repeat with the grain this time, two quick shaves should take more than 10 minutes with perhaps a few minutes of soap prep and a rubbing of after shave lotion. Oh, definitely use lotion. Best shave of your life. I assure you, as an army guy who is required by law to shave every day... this is the bees knees.
