    Am I right? This is an early Super Speed isn't it?

    Thread Starter: dionesius3

    Picked this up this afternoon at a local antique shop that calls me when they get in old razors. Anyhow I think it's a pre date code Super Speed. It was really gross covered in green gunk and would even open. I spent the better part of two hours, soaking, scrubbing, brass brushing, and using a...

    What did you learn from your last shave?

    Thread Starter: tmartin89

    I think whether a newbie or an experienced shaver, you should always learn something from every shave, no matter what it is. So, I guess i'll start. Today I learned not to get greedy looking for a BBS shave, and that a 2 pass with clean ups is enough for a DFS.

    My new natural stone

    Thread Starter: eKretz

    Anybody seen one like this before? I cut this from a stone I found near a local glacial lake. Slurries up quite easily with an Atoma 400 and the slurry seems to "break down" like a JNat. I've used it on a test piece but not on a razor yet.

    Why Spend more than $100 on a Brush?

    Thread Starter: dreadpirate

    I have 3 brushes; Rooney, Semogue, and an olive wood handle Dovo (my first brush). These are all great brushes. All under $100 (just barely for the Rooney and Dovo). (Also have a Muhle travel brush; but that doesn't count). Hell - there are a lot of great brushes under $50. Look at the...

    Helping Newbies = Feels Good

    Thread Starter: docholliday77

    I had a great experience at work tonight. A month or so ago I introduced a couple of young guys at work to the concept of wet shaving with real soap/cream and using a DE razor. They are thinking about getting into this around Christmastime (going to ask their folks for the razors, I think). I...

    Trouble disassembling a Super Speed

    Thread Starter: ks6c

    I have several Super Speeds acquired through some recent auctions and the OCD in me wants to completely disassemble them for a thorough cleaning. But despite some great threads and videos on the subject, I can't get the door rod assembly to drop out on the first one I'm trying. I have (1) NDC...

    My new bowl

    Thread Starter: aspirin54

    Did some glassblowing yesterday and decided I needed a custom shaving bowl. Think it turned out pretty good looking. It is deep enough with good sides so it should build up a good lather.

    Thread Starter: Punchy71

    Greetings, Anyone have any recommendations or suggestions for an all-natural shaving cream good for a beginner to try? Perhaps an all-natural sampler pack of some kind that I might be able to mail-order from somewhere? Thank you
