    Cool article John... my brother actually sent that too me about an hour ago and asked me about it. I tried to get him onboard before... maybe it'll sink in this time

    Good article! Always cool to see someone out there getting converts!

    And it's in the Top 10 over at digg.com - nice work!

    (Although from reading the comments, some people were confused by the picture of the straight razor user next to the heading "Double-edged razor".)

    Smile Article for Women?

    Hi there! I clicked over from the Zen article. I was intrigued because it said women also can do this style of shaving. Being a woman who would like to give up ingrown hairs and red bumps, I really want to learn more. Do you have any articles here geared toward women? If not, maybe the author's wife and he might collaborate on one for us ladies? Thank you very much. I'm going to have to try this if I can figure out how. :)

    This is probably going to work in reverse, now, too. I clicked over to read John's article and found myself looking at the rest of the site. I'll have to read some more when I'm not at work.

    The razor in the photo accompanying the article is not a DE. The wet shaving part still applies though.

    Oh the life of a celebrity, was that before you strolled out in your 911 Turbo to starbucks ? LOL Good Job Mark those videos for some including myself are what brought us over to the lighter side of shaving.

    Same here. And when I convert people, the first thing I tell them is, "Here, watch all these:" and link to Mantic's page.

    With all the shaving gear you have, we wouldn't accept anything less.
