Straight Razor Place - If You Havent Heard Of It Youre Missing Out
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

If you are into straight razor shaving or are getting into straight razor shaving you have probably heard of Straight Razor Place. It is probably the biggest online straight razor forum on the internet. It originally started as a yahoo group by Lynn Abrams. When it got too big for Yahoo groups to manage Lynn moved it over to a website and started Straight Razor Place. Lynn is a legend in the straight razor community and he is often credited with helping bring back the interest.

Straight Razor Place is vast. It has a lot of useful content. I don't even want to think about how long it would take to digest everything that is in there. You have a wide range of experience levels that hang out there. You have people who are just learning about straight razors, to people who build straight razors from scratch. When I say scratch I mean it. There are people who hand forge the steel and custom make it. Pretty crazy, huh?

I really like Straight Razor Place. It is a forum full of very classy people. Everyone is always nice and eager to help you with whatever help you may need. People are constantly posting videos and tutorials. You can find anything and everything you ever wanted to know about straight razors there.

Since there are so many straight razor enthusiasts there, it is also a great place to buy straight razors. Straight razors can be pretty expensive to buy brand new, so if you're looking to purchase a quality straight razor at a cheap price then the Straight Razor Forums are definitely a place you want to check out.

If you do buy a straight razor brand new chances are it will need to be honed first. Most straight razors that come from the factories are not shave ready. They do not have a good enough edge to shave your beard with. In order to get the razor shave ready it has to be honed on wet stones. The supplies needed to hone a razor can be pretty expensive. If you have never honed a straight razor before, chances are you won't be able to get it shave ready either. This another really useful aspect of Straight Razor Place. It makes easy to find people who can hone your straight razor for you. Typically you can get someone to do for $10-$20.

If you haven't been Straight Razor Place, check it out right now! Seriously, stop reading and go. You're still reading... :P Alright, have an awesome day!
