Was that originally a Parker SR-1? Would like to see the process for making the scales, as I think pinning for the shavette would be different from that of a traditional straight.
I'm learning to shave this way. Just using it 2 times a week (other days i'm in hurry). Thanks for the instructable. How often do you change the blades?

Now you are talking! This is a great idea. You can heat it up and use pre/aftershave to give it a good scent. Sadly my towels do not stay hot very long and it becomes too much work for me day to day. This is great for weekends. Thank you for contributing!
Much appreciated! You can take a good layer off when you shave if you're not careful!
I do wish I had a tripod for this exact reason! I really did this project last minute. I wanted to see a project for men in this area of the community.
I just updated the Instructable to address your comment. Very appropriate question. Thank you! ~The angle at which the blade touches your face should be extremely narrow. Keep it as narrow as possible. It should not take much effort to shave. Let the weight of the razor do the work!
Nice detail. I've been using a true straight razor for about 4 years and I completely agree- the improvement between straight or shavett and plastic, 3 or even 5 blade razors is simply amazing and only truly appreciated when one experiences it themself. One point- I have found badger hair brushes to be superior to synthetic brushes- lather is richer and whiskers more easily raised from the skin. - JasonS324
If you put the camera in video mode and on a tripod or other device to steady it then you can shave with two hands. then download it and pick the frames you want and insert then in your subject article. - DennisS33
