    Just goes to show that they don't make razors or kids like they used to :

    Straight, 'cut-throat' razors are terrible. They don't call them that for nothing. Really terrible.

    The best shaving lubricant, by the way, is water.
    The foam/soap only helps to keep it on your face.

    Nah, I have to stick by my original assertion. The best lubricant is Noxzema in a blue jar.

    It doesn't foam like soap, so there's no lather. Rub it in thin, and shave away. Try it, you'll like it.

    It still is just a way to let water stick to your face better than it already does.
    I'll just continue splashing my face. Works fine.

    Sorry, Eric. I have kept a straight razor (as an antique), but no longer have the thingy you are looking for.

    I have a Gillette open comb stype handle you are welcome to. Most of the plating is gone from mine but it looks kind of like http://countryjoescollectiblestuff.c...ette-new-1.jpg

    My father-in-law agrees, and his face is generally as smooth as a baby's b'hind (or maybe even Eric Rose's b'hind... who knows).

    I have a beard and an extra double edged handle. If you still need one (the handle, I mean), PM or Jaykhill@aol.com with your snail mail address. BTW, I agree the Noxema is great but Rainphot has it. The brush and cup are greatest==although I just use it all on my neck only when my wife insists.

    Sorry Eric,

    Sometime in October 1968 I threw my last razor in the garbage.... and have not shaved since.

    Funny thing happened years ago. I had a full beard for about 7 years. Most of the people I worked with had never seen me without it. Now comes along daughter number one and she decides that when she is riding on dads shoulders the beard is a great way to steer dad. That was that and the beard came off.

    The following Monday I walked into work sans beard. I could tell people were looking at me in that weird way they do when they know something has changed but can't figure out what it is. Several asked me if I had gotten a hair cut. Well I guess they were half right lol. Anyway I let it go and it took them 3 days to figure out what was different.

    Just goes to show how people really don't pay attention to how you look but rather concentrate on your eyes and body language.

    I have a buddy that grew his beard probably round the same time Ken did and refuses to shave it off because his identity is so wrapped up in it. Or at least he thinks it is. I'm not suggesting you are as insecure as he is, don't get me wrong.
