I have a straight razor, because I am an enormous manly man. Got a leather strop and a badger hair brush for putting on soap. Because, however, I’m an impatient man I’ve never knuckled down and learnt to use it bar a few scraping attempts which removed maybe 5 hairs out of 1000. I’ve stuck with the mach 3, although I am getting irratated about the ads trying to convert people to the turbo. Why do I need to upgrade? THE HAIR IS BEING REMOVED FROM MY FACE ALREADY.

I reconcile my failure with the stright blade by telling myself that impatience is manly too.
