    Proraso pre shave question

    Thread Starter: AlphaU2

    Hi gents, I recently started using the Proraso white pre shave cream before my shaves. I have been using pure organic coconut oil but wanted to try something else to see if it would be better. After 2 uses with 2 different shaving soaps just to be sure I have come to the conclusion that the...

    Cold Water Shave Convert

    Thread Starter: msayani

    So today I tried cold water shaving purely by luck. The hot water in our building ran out in the middle of my shower so in had to lather and shave with cold water. I think it was destiny because I've never enjoyed a shave more. The menthol in my Proraso Green combined with the cold water is the...

    I have had my wife's grandfathers razors for several years now, and recently took the plunge to have them cleaned up and honed. Sent a Case Red Imp and a John Pritzlaff Brilliant off to Glen and got them back on Monday. Since I took today off, I took the plunge this morning and tried out the...

    Slants

    Thread Starter: Babyhead

    Can we talk about Slants? Why do you like them? Why do you NOT like them? I want to hear people's opinions of them. Looking at the Merkur slants and interested what it is about slants that make them attractive/offensive to folks. To me they seem it would be a more efficient way to attack...

    Israeli Red Personna Razors

    Thread Starter: Drkxman

    Hey Guys, I've heard about these Israeli Personna blades and the consensus is that they are pretty good. Does anyone have any experience with these and are they worth sourcing? I'm a Feather user and have tried others here and there but always come back to my Feather blades. I use: SS Slim...

    Peterson Bent Apple stem question

    Thread Starter: ctr

    I have received and returned 2 Bent Apple pipes recently because the draft drilling was in the upper third of the briar stem. The mouth piece is centered properly, but the drilling does not align with the hole in the mouth piece. The hole is instead in the top wall of the briar stem. Just received...

    I actually get a better shave with a duller blade

    Thread Starter: ncsuactor84BNB

    So I've been experimenting with Astras this month. Went through about 4 of them so far. Throughout the blade cycle it's all the same 1st & 2nd shave - usually I'll cut myself so I back off and just give it a light touch which doesn't trim my whiskers as much 3rd & 4th & 5th shave - this is...

    The next watch you're eyeballing?

    Thread Starter: Citizen C

    What's that one watch you continually pull up online to gaze upon? The one that is just out of reach? The one that will require saving, sacrifices, planning, and patience to acquire? My preferences are divers and "tool" watches. The Seiko Prospex Field Master is the one I lust after. An...
