    My old barber (Elmer) cut the back of my neck with one.

    He was 94. He dead now. :sad:

    Gotta admit the shave it self was fantastic...very clean but don't know if it was any better than what my disposable does...the hot towel at the end was refreshing

    But I was nervous and he knew it

    Ouch!

    I had all these crazy thoughts run through my head..."what if he slips, or has a stroke, or what if he just goes nuts and slits my throat "

    What if he starts to gently kiss your neck while holding the razor to your jugular?

    Every time I go to Vegas there is a tiny barbershop in the Bellagio and I get a straight razor shave and they do the whole hot towel and then tonic afterwards. It's terrific and I wish I could find a local barber that did them.

    That chick in your avatar looks like she got hit in the face with hammer. She's rank. Anyways, I haven't been for a shave. Why spend money to have someone do what you know how to do better?

    Yeah, he takes it all into the skin fade. I don't trust the young kid to cut my hair let alone hit me with the straight razor, but it's good to see the old guy handing down the know how.
