    Maybe Feathers are TOO sharp?

    Thread Starter: jsado

    I'm pretty new to DE shaving. I've only been doing this since Christmas. I use a Merkur Futur dialed back to 1 and I get damn good shaves with it. I started out with the Merkur blade that came with the razor and it worked well. I then switched to red Personnas and they worked flawlessly for me....

    Favorite Aftershaves without Menthol, Eucalyptis, Mint or Similar Scents?

    Thread Starter: pbrmhl

    Based on my search of the forums, I don't think this has been discussed for over five years, which surprises me. What aftershaves do you suggest for someone with an extreme aversion to menthol, etc. (and cilantro, but that's for a different forum)? I've got and love Tabac, Pinaud Classic, Pinaud...

    Trouble Dialing In The R41

    Thread Starter: bheusted

    I recently acquired a R41 (2013) and have used it a few times now. I definitely understand why it is revered as one of the most aggressive razors available now. I haven't experienced any irritation with it and have had comfortable shaves but I am having difficulty getting close shaves with it. ...

    Merkur 11c

    Thread Starter: Jgraz2

    So I'm wondering what's the point,advantage of the open comb razor . I started with the merkur futur adjustable and graduated to the 34c slant. Works feels great. What would be different with the 11c open comb?

    Good, cheap soap or cream

    Thread Starter: eleuther0s

    I'm sure some of you saw my post from earlier this week, and I apologize once again if this is a duplicate thread, but I just started shaving with a blade about a week and a half ago, namely because I am a student and need to save money. I am looking for a shaving cream or soap that is cheap but...

    Cold River Soap Works

    Thread Starter: PGHChris

    I've been looking into Cold River for a month (maybe more), and I've noticed that they have two different varieties: "Original" variety - a vegetable based, Italian style soft soap. I'm imagining something like RazoRock. "Classic" variety - a tallow based, softer puck. I'm imagining...

    *Warning-Spoilers, see post #697* - HBO's Game of Thrones

    Thread Starter: camjr

    Any other fans of this show out there? There have been so many plot twists in this series so far, I find myself eagerly anticipating each new show on Sunday night. The acting is fantastic, the sets and scenery is great (Ireland and Malta, I believe), and the character development has been top...
