A comprehensive beginner's guide to traditional wetshaving---brush, shaving cream, safety razor with double-edged blade. Traditional shaving is enjoyable and thrifty: double-edged blades are as low as 12[ each vs. as much as $3.50 for a single disposable multiblade cartridge. The multiblade cartridge's tug-and-cut action often results in skin irritation, razor bumps, and razor burn--thus all the "protective" shaving preparations and "soothing and healing" aftershaves on the market. Most men with such skin problems simply decide that they have "sensitive skin" and never realize that the culprit is the multiblade cartridge. The book is a complete introduction in itself, but it also includes links to a host of resources on the Web to complement the information in the book. Sources are provided for all the equipment and supplies needed for what you may not have thought of as a new hobby.
