    Thread Starter: Bluebriz

    Saw this in the window of a local hair salon.... It says "ladies' shaving."

    Any other OC sliders out there?

    Thread Starter: Brian G r a f s t r o m

    Without really making a conscious decision to do so, I've found myself gravitating towards the Gillette slide technique with my open comb, and I really dig it. Anyone else employ this technique/razor combo?

    Might make the switch to soaps

    Thread Starter: LordHoffleTrot

    When I first stared shaving, creams were the only way to go. I tried Mike's unscented soap this morning, using Marco's method with a VdH boar brush, and had a great shave. I didn't even need to use a pre-shave oil! Nothing better than face lathering too! I think I might be buying a lot of soaps...

    Oktoberfest is nearly upon us, and I'm noticing the Oktoberfest beers are starting to hit the stores. I would love to hear what Oktoberfests everyone is drinking. If it is a small brewery please post where they are based. If its a pretty large one, then no worries. Pictures are always...

    Traveling Ink Box

    Thread Starter: andrew98

    Thanks to AllenG's generosity, I now have 9 nearly full bottles of fountain pen ink. He mentioned that he wanted to get rid of some ink. I offered to take one bottle, but he said it was an all or nothing deal. I just had to cover the shipping cost (about $20 from GA to OR). We discussed it,...

    So I tried cella today.

    Thread Starter: chansta

    And don't I have a nice BBS to show for it? Why yes I do, sir! I put about a teaspoon size bit of water on the soap while in the shower, used moisturizer on my mug before hand. Swirled with a fairly wet brush after dumping out the water on top of the soap. I'm not sure if my lather was...

    How to shave faster?

    Thread Starter: wildcat666

    As recently posted, I have recently got my first DE shaving kit and I have been shaving with it for roughly two weeks now. I do like the thing and the results it gives me but putting it lightly, it takes too f#cking long. It seems as if this razor forces me to take 15-20 minutes just to do two...

    Dad's old razor

    Thread Starter: juergen99

    I recently visited my parents and got into a shaving discussion with my Dad. I switched from cartridge to straight shaving 5 months ago. My Dad on the other hand has been shaving with a safety razor all of his adult life (he's 79). He showed me his razor that he has been using for the last 60...
