Welcome Blog Followers!

I just wanted to take a moment, in this season where we are all rushing around, stretching both our legs and our budgets, to thank everyone who has taken the time to follow our blog.

Blogs are, by nature, somewhat narcissistic and self-serving..  They are usually written by a single individual with a particular point of view.  I try to fight this urge with every keystroke and just keep writing good content that will inform, amuse or otherwise aid you in your journey into the world of wet-shaving.

I would be remiss if I made no pitch at all for our new Magnetic StropBox System.  This is a device that I'm very proud of.  I put each one together with my own two hands for each of you.  This device is how I finish each and every shave-ready razor we sell.  So if you are a fan of our razors, then you are already a fan of our system.  By using it, you will keep your razor shave-ready for longer than you ever thought possible.  While I was stropping the old fashioned way, I never realized just how much time I spent standing in my washroom, staring at the tiles stropping razors.  In retrospect, it was a somewhat odd thing to do.  Now I can sit on my back porch, look at the trees and all those leaves I have yet to rake and strop razor after razor.  At under fifty bucks for the entire system, it's a damn good deal.  If you would like it for the holidays, send me the email address of your "gifter" and I will drop a subtle hint in their In Box ;-)

Not wanting to let this posting end on a self-serving note, I found a FREE book that you might find amusing. It is around 150 years old and is entitled: The Life & Adventures of Henry Smith The Celebrated Razor Strop Man.  Yes, there IS a book about someone who strops razors for a living.  It is, as the cover of the book says, "A complete collection of his original songs, queer speeches, humorous letters, and odd, droll, strange and whimsical sayings."

Enjoy it and welcome to the blog!
