    Checking in!

    Thread Starter: marathonman74

    Brand new here and looking to learn. Got some new stuff showing up in the mail over the next few days and looking to get started. It's been a while since I used a safety razor. I was 4 and I shaved off my eyebrows and sliced open my cheek so... shooting for a better experience this time!

    First Straight Shave Today!

    Thread Starter: Stinger

    Well, I popped the cherry today and attempted my first shave with a straight. I've been a DE shaver for a few years and always wanted to try a straight. Completed a WTG pass with no damage but decided not to push my luck and completed the final two passes with the DE. I look forward to the day...

    Finally bought an Ark

    Thread Starter: Dcaddo111

    I've been wanting an ark for a while now. Mark sent me a pm last week titled "I think I found you a good one", and that he did. (Thanks mark!). It's 8 inches long and just under 2 wide. It had some brown spots when it arrived that went away quickly in a simple green bath. It's dead flat, but not...

    Strop help please - help me spend my WCS gift certificate.

    Thread Starter: dfoulk

    So I'm new to straights and would like to purchase a nice strop. I already have a beginner strop but it doesn't thrill me. I haven't nicked it yet and I have no problem paying attention and stropping slowly so that I don't damage a nice new strop. As far as what to get I've read a little and...

    B&M Aftershave - uh-oh!

    Thread Starter: Scaramouche

    Just tried the Barrister & Mann AS, and the best description I can manage is the glue on self-sealing envelopes. Went on fine, but when dry was this sticky, tacky coating that really was like a lightweight glue. Had to wash off and apply Thayers. Just me and my skin, or others? Quite a...

    Thread Starter: syngent

    I have seen some really cool DE razors out their,... mostly we all stick to what we know and can track down info on, and for most of us that means Gillette, and while they made amazing products, there is many more makers out there, recently Doug aka Nemo dropped a pic of what appears to be an old...

    Your REALLY want pen.

    Thread Starter: ReshoeUSAF

    Fellas, I have been playing with fountain pens for a few weeks now and so far I only have one pen that I find myself drawn to. I would love a Parker 51 flighter. I love the look of the thing and I like how it looks sleek and very "aviator" like. I have always had a fascination with planes and air...

    Where do all the old blades go?

    Thread Starter: RickeyM

    While working my way through a sampler pack and some donated blades I have and researching which new blades to try, a thought can to mind. What happens to all the old used up blades? Do they just end up in the landfill or is there some sort of recycling available?
