Let Me Show You What Your Father Didn't Teach You About Shaving
How many of us remember standing at the feet of your father in the bathroom, watching him shave?
We all seem to be…starved…for a connection. That connection is your

The main focus of Sharpologist is traditional wet shaving, but there
will also be material on other aspects of grooming and style too. The
goal is to make Sharpologist super-useful to the man new to traditional

means clear, well-written tutorials on grooming (particularly
traditional wet shaving) and reviews of products you need to know about.
