    There is The Art of Shaving in Union Station and at 1050 Conn Ave in DC. At home I have a list of barbershops that MAY do shaves. I started researching and didn't get back to it.

    Their web page says they use a traditional straight with a removable blade. Does anyone know what it is? Is it a Dovo Shavette?

    EDIT: Sorry for the hijacking. I started a new thread: "DC Shaves."

    Yeah I know all about them. The company has one store in Union Station/Vistor Center but they are opening up shortly on L street which is closer to me.

    I wonder if they would be willing to give me some lessons on using my straight?

    I use so few blades on my safety that there is no economical reason for me to use a straight. Only use is for me to show my four year old son to use it when he is old enough. If I give him all of the hardware that he will need ever, imagine all the dollars he will save over his life time.

    If you don't mind making a drive to Baltimore, check out this place. I still haven't been there yet...

    There's also a few other Barber Shops that offer straight razor shaves, although I have no idea what they use (probably a shavette)...

    You wanted to get a straight razor shave before you went on a date? Or the date is - you two going to get a straight razor shave? :confused:

    Good. I don't mind traveling for a good shave so Bmore probably won't be a problem.

    Will do. I am going to call and ask around to see who would give a better shave there. So many people to pick from. :)
