    Default I've been wondering if I could shave with an axe.

    The 3.5 lber was really a pain to try and maneuver, so I sort of gave up on that. Instead I sharpened up my Plumb hatchet.

    Not the right tool for the job, but now I can say I've tried it.

    Yes. I think I re-lathered at least 4 times. Maybe more on the chin.

    I've never shaved with a straight razor, so I was pretty timid on this for the first few passes.

    Brave man!

    Now throw some Pinaud Clubman on your face and wait for the exquisite stinging to begin!

    When you shave with an axe, you can use Jack Daniels!

    Best advice from my father on shaving with a single bladed 'tool'... beard reduction, not beard removal and don't forget to dry the edge; it'll last longer.
