Welcome to This Shave Life.  I’ve been shaving my head since July of 2013.  Thought I was doing well until someone finally convinced me to try a safety razor.  Changed my life.  No, seriously.  I fell in love with the whole wet shaving culture.  And yes it is indeed a culture.  I got on line and discovered a whole community of like minded shavers who were more than happy to not only share their knowledge, but to provide a newbie with the tools necessary to take “the shave” to the next level.  Shout out to The Shave Den for being an awesome bunch of wet shave gurus and all around cool guys.  And a shout to Sly Bald Guys for getting me started in head shaving!

So here I am nearly a year later with a growing collection of razors, blades, soaps, etc.  Still very much enjoying “the shave”.  So I finally thought I’d share some of my experiences with you.  I hope you find it informative and occasionally entertaining.  The content will change as I get a feel for what direction I really want to focus on.   Enjoy!

  2. Hi there- Matt from RazorEmporium.com I was referred to you by Matthew of Why I Wet Shave.

    I wanted to see if I could write an article for your site? I’ve written for Art Of Manliness and other blogs, and have a passion for educating people on all things wet shaving and especially vintage Gillette info.


    We could also do a revamp on one of your fatboys to show people the process – check it out here:


    Or an article about head shaving with a straight razor – our honemeister Eric does just that on a daily basis!

    Look forward to hearing back from you!

    Just joined over at the shave den. I just started wet shaving my head with a DE! I’ll be hitting you up for tips in the future. I’m just diving into the wet shave culture so I’m looking to settle in on a razor over the next year or so. I’m using a $15 DE from Sally’s Beauty and just opened a pack of the micro plus one blades I found at Wal Mart. I’m headed over to tryablade.com to get some different blades to try. See you over at the den!

Let me know what you think?
