    Thread Starter: mblakele

    Looking for a modern holder-top container for your Arko or Valobra? Today I noticed that my Arko stick is a pretty good fit for the cap of the pill bottle where it already lives. Anyone can drop a stick into a pill bottle, but now my stick can levitate in one. Why holder-tops? Well, I like...

    Voskhod blades - available any more?

    Thread Starter: poikkeus

    Voskhod blades are smooth and forgiving - but they've begun to disappear from reliable sources. (A few tucks are on eBay, and Amazon is sold out.) Are stocks of Voskhod blades temporarily out...or should people be stocking up?
