Shaving Wisdom + Fatherly Advice

Once upon a time, when I was in my teens and still learning about the manly art of shaving, I asked my Dad if those new (at the time) razors with two blades were any better than the single blade ones that he used. He told me then that the only time a man ever needs two blades in his razor is when the first one is dull.

A quarter of a century later, my Dad has left this world. However, I still think of him when I see these displays for new razors with an ever increasing number of blades. They always promise a closer, smoother shave. However, there's never been one that does the job any better than one blade that is actually sharp.

Thanks, Dad!
