Miss Moneypenny


I can highly recommend a shop in Chicago which is called The Art of Shaving. They sell just about everything from shaving creams and aftershave lotions to shaving brushes and those old school shaving blades you can really quite easily slit your throat with if you do not watch it and do not quite know what you are doing.

I suspect sales for this kind of razor must have skyrocketed following the release of the last James Bond film. Who could possibly forget that scene from Skyfall in which Moneypenny helps Bond shave while the audience looks on – eyes bulging and glued to the screen – wondering if perhaps she might be one of the bad guys about to make an attempt on James’ life. But all goes well, and because Bond is a gentleman who kisses but never tells, there is a cut and the scene changes before we become witness of just how well the shave went for him…

But I digress. The staff at The Art of Shaving are really nice and if you are interested, you can go there and get a shave. Their barber will also teach you how to use one of those long razors without accidentally, brutally bleeding to death.
