    Exclamation Great Straight Razor shave in the Poconos/PA

    My birthday is coming up. Since my family lives in the poconos and that's where I'll be, I'd like to give myself a present of a great straight razor shave. I know there are places near Philadelphia (West Chester, PA has The Ultimate Shave...) but I can't find anything like it in the Poconos area. I'm willing to drive an hour or so to get to one. Help!

    I grew up and lived there until 2005.

    Dempsy's Barber shop on 5th street in Stroudsburg used to do it, but that was in the 1980's and it was with the hair-cutting disposable blade, not a real straight.

    Nicolleti's is still in business in East Stroudsburg - I never asked, but a few of the barbers there are old school (barber trained in the 50's & 60's as opposed to beauty school) and they might do it if you asked.

    I don't know of anyone else off hand to recommend.
