***Safety Razors vs Cartridge Razors***

Have you ever seen a Gillette commercial? Notice, one of the biggest points they make is about the number of blades they have. I remember when cartridge razors just had 2-blades, now some have 5-blades. Are they any better? Debatable. In fact, a lot of people argue that the safety razor is proof the more blades make no difference. The safety razor has only one blade and it provides an undeniably closer shave. In fact, using more blades just leads to further irritation.

Think about what actually causes irritation. If you’re passing 5-blades over your skin instead of just 1, you’re going to cause far more irritation. Then, consider that safety razors have much sharper blades, meaning that you don’t have to go over the same patch of hair multiple times. It’s clear that a cartridge razor will cause far more irritation. The blades in cartridge razors are of much lower quality steel in many cases, they aren’t as fine or sharp and therefore can’t cut to the same level.


                                                           ***Irish Bog Oak approx 4000-6000 years old.***

Over a span of thousands of years, because of minerals and iron from the water, the rotting of oak timber is slower. A special role is played by the underground waters in the creation and darkening of the wood.

Over thousands of years, the wood turns from golden brown to black, this makes it very hard and needs to be worked with sharp tools.

Due to all of this no two trunks can be found of the same colour.
