About the author:
Michael Ham has been shaving for more than half a century, but only belatedly discovered how to shave with pleasure. He began by posting what he had learned from his and others' experience on his blog, leisureguy.wordpress.com. As he learned more, he expanded that brief post into a book for the novice wetshaver.
Leisureguy's Guide to Gourmet Shaving, Third Edition
Shaving Made Enjoyable
The third edition of the complete beginner's guide to traditional wetshaving---brush, shaving cream, safety razor with double-edged blade. Traditional shaving is enjoyable and thrifty: double-edged blades are as low as 9¢ each vs. as much as $3.50 for a single disposable multiblade cartridge.
The multiblade cartridge's tug-and-cut action often results in skin irritation, razor bumps, ingrowns, and razor burn---thus all the "protective" shaving preparations and "soothing and healing" aftershaves now offered. Most men with skin problems decide that they have "sensitive skin" and never realize that the problem is the multiblade cartridge.
This third edition also tells how to cure and prevent razor bumps and ingrowns.
The book is complete in itself, but it also includes links to a host of resources on the Web to complement the book. Sources are provided for all you need to get started.
It's also a perfect gift for Father's day and as a graduation gift for guys.
