As usually attending the Dreams fleamarket in Xintiandi / Shanghai, i was all set up and ready, when my new old friend appeared. This gentleman was a barber for long decades and is now on his 70ies. As usual we chat and he talks about the old times.
But today two more two more things happened: he brought and old Sheffield razor that he used for many years and he wasn't happy about my shave. (Well, safety razor fast fix) he grabbed my blade and gave me a shave right on the spot. The beard prep was not as i would do normally. He just used just cold mineral water. What the hell. It was still a perfect shave.
