I'll stick with my safety razor, thank you!
why did he shave DOWN the throat? i always go up!!
in all seriousness, is anyone thinking this was done, or was this just to prove a point? i have heard tell of native americans using clam shells to essentially pluck the hair on their face, or the top of their heads....
Now I know why men wore beards. Beat the heck out of shaving!
By shaving down "with the grain", the wisker is less likely to pull the skin up on to the cutting edge. More of a sort of deflection.
I have never read or seen any archeological evidence that this was done by stone age cultures, but it obviously could have been. I am also not an archeologist, so maybe there is such evidence out there. I know one of the characters in the "Clan of the Cave Bear" series of books shaved with a stone blade, but that was fiction. I have read in the past about Native Americans plucking their facial hair, and my Dad knew someone in Viet Nam who used to tweeze instead of shaving. As a kid I remember reading about some tribes where the mothers would scald their boys faces with lime water to prohibit facial hair growth. I'm happy with my Dollar Shave Club razors, thanks.
so that must mean i'm just weird. shaving up the throat takes me with the grain!
I think i'll stay with my Bic Flex3...
