Hello gents! I've read some interesting comments on this site and maybe you can shed some light. Please keep in mind that I am not criticizing anyone's point of view, I am just interested in others opinions.
I had never, ever, in my entire wetshaving years come across a single guy who said wetshaving was a hobby until I found this website.
To me shaving has been nothing more than grooming. Granted, proper shaving is an important and pleasant ritual, but still just grooming. I would not, for instance, say that taking a bath or clipping my toe nails is a hobby, so what makes shaving different? you could argue that you have fun sampling different creams/aftershaves, but there's a pretty big leap between that and a hobby.
Now, I could be confused or misread some comments. I can see how collecting specific antiques like old safety razors or straight razors and restoring them would be a hobby, especially if you care enough to research their history. However, some have made it clear in previous postings that the actual action of shaving is a hobby, and this is what confuses me.
Another question I would like to pose to you gentlemen: If you view this as a hobby, do you list it on your resume where you have your list of hobbies? if so, what kind of looks or responses do you get?
Again, this is all curiosity and please, vote.
