This page is to list shaving journals that were completed or are in progress by the community in order to provide different experiences. The journals contain the journey of the new shaver with a specific razor (Safety Razor
or Straight Razor
). The entries made by the user will allow the reader to follow the progress, see the difficulties that were encountered and solutions provided by the community.

[hide][top]What makes a good journal?
A good journal will give an update with a description of what was used for the shave. Any issues will be documented and often, questions will be asked on what went wrong. Many users provide a shave # with each shave to make it easier to track.
This is not mandatory but here's a list of what to provide for each journal entry if you decide to start a thread:
See this thread for more information.
- Shave number
- Date if you could use the post date
- What was used, which razor, brush, shaving soap, shaving cream
- How did it go? / What did you do?
- Any issues?
- Any questions?
- Pictures are optional
- Frequent updates
