The whole idea of using things for a little while and then throwing them away . . . like razors . . . doesn’t seem too environmentally sound, or a way of being self-reliant. After all, if you were required to live off your own resources and couldn’t run down to the store and buy more Schick, what would happen to you? What would happen to your hairiness?
The Damsel doesn’t like shelling out loads of money for razors, and she really doesn’t want to buy a stockpile of them. There are a lot more fun things to do with money. But she’s not willing to go rugged, either. Not yet. So when she saw this video, she really hoped it would work.
The Damsel confesses, she didn’t believe it could be that easy. So she tried it. And she was happily surprised. It really did work! Your mileage may vary.
Another guy suggests the same thing except running the razor backwards over a pair of jeans. Okay, but your arm is right there with you in the shower, so ???
The Damsel would like to thank this nice gentleman for going shirtless on YouTube in order to instruct us all on sharpening razors. Bonus points for teaching us Old School words such as “strop.”
