    I've had many beards in my time, and I've recently joined the baldy head/beardy face club. I've been looking at straights lately, but how are they are shaving your head? Tricky? Or is it just a case of getting used to using a straight?

    Ooh. Not something I've ever done, but there is a thread at this forum (Which seems to be one of the leading authorities on straight razor shaving)

    So... I have ordered my beer soap! I couldn't have just one, so I ordered "The Hipster", "Satsuma", and "Sex Panther". RAWR!

    Yeah, Sex Panther. RAWR! Patchouli, sandalwood, and citrus - like it was made just for me!
    @Davies0010 (from back a ways) My boyfriend has a ginger beard and blonde hair, and his ginger beard looks very attractive (I may be a bit biased)

    Oh WOW. This looks (and, I imagine, smells) amazing. I have no idea what sandalwood and citrus smell like together, but I am so ready to find out. 7 bucks? Hell yeah. Thanks, you two!

    Edit: And THIS looks even BETTER. Oh god. I'm gonna spend all my money on beer soap, aren't I?

    Ha! That's exactly what I thought as I was figuring out which of my 13 tabs to close...

    I had to grab my right wrist with my left hand and force it away from the links, with tears in my eyes as I did.

    So, on the subject of shaving, here is a question for the ladies regarding the leg-shaving: How the HELL do you girls handle the kneecaps? I've always wondered.

    @Alan Tyson
    I usually sit down in the shower when I shave. You can't really do that bit without bending the knee unless you want to get cut. Also, a good razor is a must. And I for one have to go about 6 different directions for every knee. It takes a bit of time. And under the knee is actually more difficult, as far as I'm concerned.

    I agree with Fishelle, under the knee sucks.

    Ha! I've never shaved my legs further than up to the knee cap and certainly not under the knee. Shaving knee caps?! It's called shaving the LEGS for a reason you know. :D Then again the hair on my legs is blonde, soft, and there is very little of it. I sometimes think I'm the only one who notices it's there.

    As for washing, olive soap.

    unfortunately the only recent photo i can find.
    try to ignore the odd facials, the result of jigging after a few beverages....

    I keep the facial hair trimmed fairly short since it's gone grey. Too much whiskerage gives me that grandad look.

    Here's my current beard, which is weeks longer than I usually let it grow:
    phill sea's beard
    My niece was about to jump on my laptop as the picture took.

    I have to say, I'm sad there are no actual lathering videos yet.
