A couple a days a took my car to get the windows tinted and decided to walk a couple of blocks to the barbershop. Way better than waiting two hours in the Texas heat. Waited about 10 minutes and it was my turn. Juan the owner of the barber shop gave me a nice fade and i noticed he unwrapped a new BIC Chrome Platnium cut it half and stuck it in his shavette. Being new to world of DE shaving I asked him where he got his blades since the Bic blade was one which I wanted to try. He told me he ordered them from his supplier in bulk and it was his personal favorite blade to use in his barbershop. I told him I had tried several blades like personnas, astras and feathers but never a Bic and I was looking to learn how to use a straight. He gave me this look of surprise and pointing to his shavette and I said no a straight. He said they shave great but not many people use them. I told him I stared to use a shave brush, soap and a DE not long ago. He was surprised and told to come by if I ever got a straight and he would show me how to shave with it then handed me a new pack of Bic chrome platniums as he finished up my cut. I got a hair cut and a new blade to add to my sampler pack boy did I leave happy.
