    Just ordered myself a straight razor kit. Since I can't grow a proper beard myself (although I've been sporting a mo since November 2014), I figured I'd at least make shaving a little more enjoyable/manly for myself.

    Best way to practice is to blow up a balloon, cover in shaving cream and go for it.

    Back when I used to shave I got decent at it, also sliced myself several times but it is so sharp you don't realise.

    Beard pic to come...(18 months this month).

    I was just going to practice on my own face. If I cut myself too much, I'll go the balloon route. Cheers for the tip boeman.

    If the straight razor's too much to handle, get yourself an old-school DE Safety Razor and some blades to go with it. I use (used, growing a beard.. skin's too sensitive to constantly shave) a Merkur 34C HD and Feather blades, closest shave you'll get without going for a slant-edge razor. Either way, work on your lathering and pre-prep, this will save you from a lot of discomfort. Proraso make some good stuff in that regard.

    I've used this combo for a couple years now and it's great. This kit: http://www.mensbiz.com.au/shaving/sh...aving-kit.html is a good way to start but piss off all those other blades and stick with the feather's, they are the best.

    I also have some of this: http://www.mensbiz.com.au/shaving/pr...eam-300ml.html for when I used to full face shave and it certainly wakes the skin up. I quite like the menthol but if not there are other products out there. Brands like D.R Harris, Geo F Trumper, Colonel Conk or Taylor of Old Bond Street make nice gear!

    ^ Astra blades are 'OK' if you're in a pinch, but typically if your barber is any good they'll stock Feathers, and enough of them to part with a few. That, or Shaver Shop.

    Not all that impressive yet but a few months in and the biggest it's been yet. I usually pussy out thinking I look like a hobo by this point (have been in a cycle of grow it a bit then shave it back to a goatee for years). Been trimming the sides a bit with my head shaver to keep it looking somewhat unscruffy this time and pleased with the results.

    Just shaved for the first time with a straight razor.

    Ended up nicking myself twice, but apart from that, I'm happy with how it turned out for my first go.

    Still got my mo though.

    Sorry, whenever I hear of straight razors I think of the man from Ironbark and the gilded youths.

    Beard poem.

    THE MAN FROM IRONBARK by A.B. "Banjo" Paterson

    It was the man from Ironbark who struck the Sydney town,
    He wandered over street and park, he wandered up and down.
    He loitered here, he loitered there, till he was like to drop,
    Until at last in sheer despair he sought a barber's shop.
    "'Ere! shave my beard and whiskers off, I'll be a man of mark,
    I'll go and do the Sydney toff up home in Ironbark."


    The barber man was small and flash, as barbers mostly are,
    He wore a strike-your-fancy sash, he smoked a huge cigar;
    He was a humorist of note and keen at repartee,
    He laid the odds and kept a "tote", whatever that may be,
    And when he saw our friend arrive, he whispered, "Here's a lark!
    Just watch me catch him all alive, this man from Ironbark."


    There were some gilded youths that sat along the barber's wall.
    Their eyes were dull, their heads were flat, they had no brains at all;
    To them the barber passed the wink, his dexter eyelid shut,
    "I'll make this bloomin' yokel think his bloomin' throat is cut."
    And as he soaped and rubbed it in he made a rude remark:
    "I s'pose the flats is pretty green up there in Ironbark."


    A grunt was all reply he got; he shaved the bushman's chin,
    Then made the water boiling hot and dipped the razor in.
    He raised his hand, his brow grew black, he paused awhile to gloat,
    Then slashed the red-hot razor-back across his victim's throat:
    Upon the newly-shaven skin it made a livid mark -
    No doubt it fairly took him in - the man from Ironbark.


    He fetched a wild up-country yell might wake the dead to hear,
    And though his throat, he knew full well, was cut from ear to ear,
    He struggled gamely to his feet, and faced the murd'rous foe:
    "You've done for me! you dog, I'm beat! one hit before I go!
    I only wish I had a knife, you blessed murdering shark!
    But you'll remember all your life the man from Ironbark."


    He lifted up his hairy paw, with one tremendous clout
    He landed on the barber's jaw, and knocked the barber out.
    He set to work with nail and tooth, he made the place a wreck;
    He grabbed the nearest gilded youth, and tried to break his neck.
    And all the while his throat he held to save his vital spark,
    And "Murder! Bloody murder!" yelled the man from Ironbark.


    A peeler man who heard the din came in to see the show;
    He tried to run the bushman in, but he refused to go.
    And when at last the barber spoke, and said "'Twas all in funó
    'Twas just a little harmless joke, a trifle overdone."
    "A joke!" he cried, "By George, that's fine; a lively sort of lark;
    I'd like to catch that murdering swine some night in Ironbark."


    And now while round the shearing floor the list'ning shearers gape,
    He tells the story o'er and o'er, and brags of his escape.
    "Them barber chaps what keeps a tote, By George, I've had enough,
    One tried to cut my bloomin' throat, but thank the Lord it's tough."
    And whether he's believed or no, there's one thing to remark,
    That flowing beards are all the go way up in Ironbark.
    They hung a sign up in our town "If you live it up, you won't live it down"-Tom Waits

    When you say you "had to", don't you do regular drills as part of your job?
    Best I can do to describe the issue is this.
    Normally it goes BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR, shift, BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

    But now it's a bit more like this
    BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-R-R-r-r-r-r-r-, shift

    Nope, not used for drills as in rescue. At our work it's for working with LNG with methane >99% mol also some areas when purging with nitrogen. With the CFA I haven't been signed off yet, so not sure of their requirement. Unfortunately strict instruction was given that no pass if not clean shaven. Can get a seal with beard, just need to pull straps tighter.

    So the wedding of my mate has been and gone, and I kept both my promises of not shaving since he got engaged, and shaving after the wedding for Ms boeman.

    Turns out it was wayyyyy longer than I anticipated, and so I bow out of this thread.
