    Mikawa Botan Awasedo from Takeshi

    Thread Starter: buca3152

    Got my approximately 8 in x 2 in Mikawa botan nagura from Takeshi. Didnt lap yet, but feels nice on the blade. I have to lap it smooth though to get a real feel for it.

    Thread Starter: SteakWilliams

    Hello everybody, I just got into wet shaving and while I haven't quite nailed the technique down, I'm gettin' there. I do however, have a few stories sure to make you grin.

    One ring to rule them all

    Thread Starter: Legion

    Over the last couple of years I have had a bit of an epiphany. I have WAY too much stuff. I have stuff I like, and spares of that stuff, and back-ups for the spares.
