Just another set of tools and material to me......

^^^ You obviously do not appreciate how badly paper (and other household crap) dulls a really good sharp edge......

Actually I do, but that was just too good of an opportunity to use that!

Ok funny story... kindof... I suffer from obession compulsive disorder... I usually keep it under check but I was very stressed out... how I manifest symptoms is well, I start chopping on my hair (not certain if you remmeber my old avatar with long hair). Just before a big business trip I cut my hair from mid-length to just shorter than Justin Bieber. I looked down and the sink was filled with hair. Uh-ho!

Thankfully my hairdresser was able to fit me in before hte business trip and even things up. Apparently I didn't do all that bad of a job but I have promised to try and not cut my hair anymore...

yes I am like the little kid who gets hold of the scissors...

Yes, I cut my hair once a week with a # 1 blade. I used to do a # 2, but switched to #1 last summer and never went back to the shaggy hippie #2 blade.

Before I started cutting my own hair, I was paying $15 bucks for the same haircut I have now, and having to sit around in a farty barber shop for upwards of an hour waiting. Not to mention that I always had to fix a few spots after I got home.

^Doesn't a #1 blade make your follicles "innies"?

I cut mine kinda short. I found a dent in my head I didn't know I had.

I'd still be going if we still had a barber in town. Sit and talk with the fellas, catch up on old news, the smell of Pinaud Clubman in the air and the shoeshine booth in the corner with the chance for more talk. The last good barber retired about 7 years ago.
I would go to beauty salons for a haircut which wasn't bad but I felt like I was intruding into a part of the feminine world that I shouldn't be in. I would sure like a good old barbershop again.

# 1 is 1/8 inch, IIRC.

That's about an eighth inch above my follicles.

I believe that is correct... here's what I got on the interwebs:

#1 = 1/8 inch
#2 = 1/4 inch
#3 = 3/8 inch
#4 = 1/2 inch

I'd like to but I'm afraid before it was all over, I'd whip out the shaving cream and go "Telly".

Well, I still have hair and a professional image to maintain so I have it done by a pro. Old school Italian barber, scissor cut, straight razor shave, shoulder and neck massage. One of lifes simple pleasures and well worth the small fee. Then I don't have to sport the cliche bald shave, goatee 60 year old Harley exec look.

I started doing this too as I don't have a convenient way to do the 2 mirror thing for my neck and don't like the hippy neck hair look I get with a #2 or even a #1. I had my wife try to trim up my neck once and that was the first time I ended up buzzing it with no attachment. Ever since then I figure I get a few more days to a week in between haircuts by using no attachment. The only problem I find is that at the no attachment length my hair acts like velcro to towels and shirts for the first few days.
