Before American inventor King Camp Gillette invented the disposable razor in 1901, men were accustomed to going to a barbershop for a straight razor shave or using a single blade razor at home. Nowadays, most men wouldn’t even think about going to the barbershop for just a shave. The straight razor shave has become the men’s equivalent to a women getting pampered with a manicure or facial. So sit back, relax and trust the  professional shaving skills of one of these local barber shops.
