In Russia Shovel Shave You! Wait, What?

Nizhny Novgorod is a city about 150 miles east of Moscow, Russia and home to a Man so Manly razor blades and electric shavers fear him. So he shaves with a shovel, a hatchet, and pair of scissors, HA! take that Gillette.

Alexander Karpenko, a 35-year-old English teacher first picked up a pair of scissors at the age of 16 in place of a razor when he was inspired by his grandfather’s stories of men in World War II using anything they could get their hands on to shave while on the battlefield. Karpenko knows shaving with unorthodox tools is dangerous, and doesn’t recommend the practice but commented that he loves the smell of metal and the thrill of having a sharp blade pressed against his throat, knowing that one false move could be fatal.

I have a question, what the hell does this guy use for aftershave? clearly Old Spice isn’t Manly enough for him, Petrol? Napalm? live Piranhas?
Here is hoping that he doesn’t go all metro and use that shovel to do some, “gardening” if you know what I mean. And by know what I mean I mean shave his balls. It does however give meaning to the term Manscaping when you’re doing it with a shovel.
