A fresh, sharp razor is faster and easier to use, is less less painful, and gives a better and longer-lasting finish.
As a result you need to shave less but you feel like shaving more, a virtuous cycle resulting from reduced friction and better, more satisfying results.
What tools to you use to do your work? Is it time to sharpen, overhaul, upgrade or replace them?
Whether this is worth the expense and effort will depend on how much the improvements cost and how often you use the tool in question – but if you use it regularly, it’s worth serious consideration.
Unless you’re a compulsive sorter, tidying your desk, inbox, hard drive, filing cabinet, or office is always worth the effort, and probably worth a weekly slot in your calendar. The new year is an excellent time to start.
