I use a safety razor in the shower. Shaving is the last thing I do before I get out so my beard has as much time as possible to soften up.

A saftey razor is your normal shaving razor that you would buy in your local drugstore or supermarket (think Gillette or other similar brands). I use a disposable kind.

A straight razor is just a blade. The can be very dangerous if you do not shave carefully.

I maintain a well gromed "thin" beard, I HATE to shave, mainly because of razor burn. But I do use a triple blade to keep things clean.

oh, over the sink.

Mainly wax...but inbetween times I do shave...a girly version of a safety razor.....when depends on the daily schedule!

Husband: safety razor after morning shower over the sink on weekdays (all to do with getting that beard soft!) rarely at weekends....if we are going out on Saturday or Sunday he'll have a shower and shave before we go if he is shaving (i.e. if it is super smart). But he waxes his back, lol! Or not himself, obviously...someone else waxes his back!
