Stone Cold Pimpin’: The Perfect Shave

Oooh… I’ve always shaved with an electric razor, just because my dad always has. I’ve never even tried anything else. But it’s a bit boring and never leaves me feeling like I’ve had a decent shave.

So when I saw the Merkur razor on Cool Tools a couple of months back it really appealed. But I’ve never quite got round to taking the plunge and changing the habit of nearly two decades. Maybe I will now…
