An interactive guide to straight razor shaving currently does not exist… so let me be the first to welcome you to the beginnings of the first!
The basic idea is a general table of contents, which is comprised of links to specific articles, and key areas of interest regarding straight razor shaving. The benefit to this type of guide is that readers can quickly, and easily get to topics and articles of which they have specific interest to. Trying to read through page after page of a “story” like guide doesn’t help when you’re in your bathroom, face covered with lather… nor will a video or DVD… what will? VERY specific posts, and information you can quickly/easily read and use, or print and reference… and do so for free! So I know what you are thinking… what’s the interactive part? The interactive part is the fact that this guide is 1.) Ever-changing… new topics in the table of contents will frequently be added 2.) Users can post questions, and/or add additional content by posting replies to the main threads (links from the TOC) – as if someone has a question on say, the Spyderco Ultra-Fine hone, one can go to section 7 – 7 read about the hones, and if desired ask specific questions, of which will be in context to the topic, without having to preface it, or fumble around – thus actually ADDING to the guide, and creating a more comprehensive guide through interacting with it and our members.
Members can submit article requests, and/or submit new/completed articles/topics (to moderators) to be included/added to the guide!
