    Arko PIF (US/CAN)

    Thread Starter: Sheashaves710

    I've got new sticks of Arko I would like to PIF. I thought I might like to use them as a travel soap, but I can't warm up to the scent. However, from what I have heard this soap lathers exceptionally well. So, my loss, your gain. :biggrin1: Open to any US/CAN member who does not currently have...

    Last antique show of the year

    Thread Starter: *Terence*

    Just left the last local antique show of the year. Did not get anything as exciting as the previous weekend, but all in all a good day. I did see an old Gillette blade display case but the vendor wanted more than I am willing to pay.

    Looking for my first boar brush

    Thread Starter: DavidSeattleWA

    Have never tried a boar brush, but I think it would be nice to add one into my shaving routine. I use a combination of both soaps and creams, and would like to have the benefit/flexibility of being able to use either badger or boar (I already have a silvertip badger brush). I'm not a collector,...

    can foam thoughts

    Thread Starter: topcatman

    I used barbasol and even Gillette foamy when I started shaving 20 some years ago. I tried the canned gels and they sucked. Bought a can of barbasol with aloe, because it was a sensitive foam that actually had something in it. Gillette Foamy and Gillette Foamy Sensitive simply have...

    Honing help.

    Thread Starter: Bleachedfan

    Hello there, I have a question. I have a rather nice collection of straight razors and I am at the moment in my year where I can begin to hone some of them. The question is this : how do I tell if I need to hone vs spending time on the strop? I have a few blades that will take a few hairs and was...

    A little lens PIF!

    Thread Starter: WarrenB

    So when I was given the privilege of becoming The Darkroom Steward, I remembered that I had a lens sitting in a box of bits and pieces. It's an Auto Revuenon 50mm 1.8 in what I believe is an M42 fit, if any of you recognise it as another fit please let me know:biggrin1: No scratches or fungus,...

    decanting aqua velva AS

    Thread Starter: sskim3

    So I finally cleaned out my Avon bottle and put in some Aqua Velva Ice Blue. I also cleaned out another glass bottle and put some Musk in it. I must say the AS smells vastly different than the plastic bottles it came with. I am thoroughly impressed and have grown a better appreciation for Aqua...

    How many of us have stopped seeking perfection?

    Thread Starter: awa54

    OK, I'll admit it, my shave isn't BBS, I don't think it ever will be. There are a lot of reasons for that, one is that when I *do* get BBS that area invariably has an in-grown hair the next day, another is just laziness... I love shaving, but more than ten minutes a day spent communing with my...

    Old Fogies Club: What was your workout today?

    Thread Starter: August West

    I was really interested in The Clubhouse thread "What was your workout today?" but much to my chagrin I didn't feel comfortable posting my "old fogie" workouts with all those "serious" workouts. So, What was your Old Fogie workout today? I will start: 3 mile walk/20 push ups/50 sit ups. ...
