Day 55 - If it's not broke, why fix it?

There I was, five years old, shaving cream in hand and fake razor decorated with batman, ready to "shave." I've always had a fascination with shaving, even though I really don't enjoy it. I started becoming interested in double-edge razors after several friends recommended them to me. After picking one up at an antique store and purchasing a two year supply for $15, plus experiencing the best shave of my life, I couldn't turn back.

During Christmas when I getting decorations out of the attic I found my great grandfathers razors, and with my Dad's blessing I kept them and have been shaving with them ever since. I took a picture of one of those razors.
