    I don't have a picture of it but I did something similar. I was probably around 5 and my Dad's DE was always there on the sink. I remember it had a black handle and an adjustment knob that for some reason I really wanted to turn. I only cut my finger a little.

    My first shave was with a Norelco electric. Not sure how much yours hurt but mine may not have been far behind. Never used one of those again.

    I don't remember mine. But a few years back I went to visit my brother and brought an extra DE with me, sans blade, so that my 5 year old nephew could have a 3 pass shave with me.

    Some sort of pink disposable thing and whatever shave foam my father had in the house. I guess I was about 13.

    Can't recall needing to until boot camp. First I bought for myself was the Schick Slim Twin. Have used it since, would not go back.

    Cool memory P.O.M.

    I have no recollection of mine tbh.
    I do know it was by myself though. No father figure to show me the way.

    My first was an electric Remington Microscreen. Total overkill; at age 16 I could have wiped that fuzz away with a paper towel. Wish I had that 16 year old's beard now--and his hair ;)

    I really cannot recall shaving before joining the army. Then I used Palmolive Lime from a can and a Schick L.

    My very first shave ever was with a Schick Quattro with a can of Barbasol at age 18. In my teen years I had a full on beard; then when I turned 18 I shaved it off.

    Had to shave when I went to boot camp. I dry shaved the whole time.
