My 14 year old son has recently realized that he has to shave more than once a month - up to a couple of times per week already. I succumbed to my wife's fears and got him a Mach 3. He has shaved with it 4 or 5 times and yesterday he said, "You know Dad, I don't think that 3 blader is right for me, I think I want to use a safety razor instead." My heart soared and I am proud! I gave him a brush and some VerGuild Hand cream, so he is ready. I have a ball end Tech with his name on it, although, as a dad, I suppose he could take any of my razors if he wanted. We went to the Weisbrod Air Museum in Pueblo yesterday. He was clean shaven!
