You guys still shave yourselves? What are you, homeless? Seriously, I rarely shave smooth any more (just a no guard clipping job mostly), but when I do I use a straight razor. My grandfather's brother was an old school barber and I inherited 6 of his pearl handled straight razors. I had one of them rebladed and use it. I also have a hot shaving cream dispenser like you find in a barber shop. Makes all the difference in the world. Best Christmas gift ever from my mom about 7 years ago.
