Chief Shave Evangelist

I’ve only been wet shaving since the summer of 2017, but you would never guess that from my collection of software in the den. I’ve always been interested in the *old school shave*.  I’m pretty sure I stumbled across a safety razor at my grandparents when I was young and it stuck with me.  I remember Dad having old westerns on and the hero would bring out a blade/strop and get to work.  I’m enamored with the idea of passing this on to my son as a right of passage.  I learned to shave on my own with whatever electric razor my pops had lying around.  I look forward to teaching my son how to lather and 3-pass for BBS.  I will have a razor to pass on to him when the time comes.  I’m hoping I can locate one from my grandfather, the former barber, carrying on some history.  As you can see, wet shaving has turned in to a bit of a passion and I always look to try new gear or chat with like minded individuals about the hobby.

When I’m not busy chatting *shave* I can often be found at a ball diamond playing slopitch. In the winter I can also be found at the gym or at a curling rink. I’m IT guy by trade, so I love to tinker with web stuff, and automating absolutely everything in my house. I also spend time assisting my wife Erin with all the techy aspects of her business Finelite Photography & Design. If you see any really nice photos on the website or if you really like our logo, she gets all the credit 🙂

I’m in the city of Warman, Saskatchewan. It is a city just on the outskirts of Saskatoon. If you are ever in the area and want to talk shave, look me up.

Happy shaving!
