    I would occasionally accompany my father to the barber shop. They used them there.

    The kid could also be a distant Kennedy relative.
    Thanks to our wonderful Hitlery's Village, parents have been terrorized into not spaking or even punishing children in ways that would have mitigated such callous behavior. The younger parents have been endoctrinated into thinking that holding their children accountable for any bad behavior is wrong. He's still a juvenile which will probably keep him from being appropriately punished on a legal level too.

    That's justice of the poetic kind.

    My dad used to shave with a straight razor and used the strap to sharpen it; he whipped by butt with it once.

    What, you didn't tell a teacher or doctor so that he could be accused of abuse?

    I'll bet that you didn't repeat whatever you did to receive that punishment, did you?;)

    Nope; back then a teacher or the police would have told me I deserved it. In high school, we had a coach that would whip the kids with a thick 2' long paddle with a handle that he would grip with both hands.

    My dad caught me playing a pinball machine that paid off. He hated gambling worse than any Baptist preacher because his father was addicted to betting on the ponies when he was a kid. I did not play one for many years after that.

    My grandfather's strop hung in the kitchen for years. About a month ago my Mom asked me if I wanted it as a remebrance. It was never used on me but I saw him sharpen his razor many times. I turned her down.She has his soap cup also.

    I used to watch my grandfather shave himself with a long straight razor. Watching him go up the inside of the throat gave me the willies.

    Back in those days, if a fellow didn't trust himself or others with a straight razor, I'm almost certain those were the guuys that had beards.:D

    Nether my father nor my grandfather ever had any facial hair at all. My father shaved every day, even under fire from the Japanese. If I were a man, I would think I'd grow something once, just out of curiosity, but they never did!
