    Now I get the OC 'thing'

    Thread Starter: KenGriffith45

    Just put my Parker 26c open comb razor through its first shave and I get why you guys rave about the OC experience, now. I felt a lot more in-touch with the shave - there was more tactile feedback, I guess. I got as close a shave as with any other of my pitifully few razors (4!) with only WTG and...

    Ghetto Brush Stand

    Thread Starter: jgarlopa

    I started shaving with a straight razor a few months ago. I had just finished buying all my necessary supplies (brush, razor, 110 blades, etc.) and didn't want to spend another $40+ on a stand for my new brush, so I just made my own with things that I had around the house. I normally only buy glass...

    First DE Shave since mid 1970s.

    Thread Starter: BaldyCoot

    I've been wracking my brain trying to remember, but I'm sure that when I first shaved in high school in the 70s I used a DE razor. I seem to recall it not going very smoothly, and I moved on to the technological marvel of the day, the Trac Two (ooh, 2 blades!). :laugh: So after a few decades...

    Best Inks for Lamy AL-Star

    Thread Starter: docholliday77

    Okay, instead of persistently whining about this pen (see most of my other pen-related posts) :blushing:, I thought maybe I should DO something about it. Background: This pen cost me ~$40. It was my very first FP. I have used Lamy carts and the Lamy piston converter that I bought with it....

    The two pass shave.

    Thread Starter: imcndn

    Today I switched it up a bit from my usual 3 pass (WTG XTG ATG) shave and skipped the XTG pass. Why have I never done this before?!? The XTG pass is the most awkward for me and if I am going to nick myself it's always in the XTG pass. The WTG/ATG shave today was quicker (duh), damn near as...

    A little Help

    Thread Starter: mjsanta83

    JMJ - I wanted to know what other thought about my little issue, so here it is: I have a Merkur Long handle (my first razor) and I load it with a Personna Med Prep and get a DFS with little or no irritation for 5 shaves. I loaded an old Gillette tech with a Personna Med Prep and got a...

    The Importance of Prep - 1917 edition

    Thread Starter: coase

    From Russell Adams' book King Gillette: "Some doughboys, untutored in the mysteries of safety razoring, complained on their first try at it that the blades were so dull that they just would not cut whiskers at all. Things were set right when seasoned veterans advised that it was always...
