    Strop Dragging My Heart

    Are JNats like jumping in the deep end?

    Thread Starter: Strop Dragging My Heart

    So, I've been honing, with varied results, using lapping films and a marble slab. I've been frustrated with the edges I get - sometimes good and sometimes not so great. I'm still very much in the learning stages... I was watching a bit of a cooking show online a couple of weeks ago - this...

    Without the Gold,

    Thread Starter: mycarver

    Without the Gold a Goldedge is just an Edge. To me that's what makes it,,, the Gold. Here the restore on these two was the usual clean the blade , give it the factory brushed type finish , polish everything else and then add the gold. Even where there has been some wear and a stamp may not be as...

    Old Spice Scent Duration

    Thread Starter: Raissermesser

    Old Spice has been my go-to since I switched from Brute decades ago. This means I'm used to the scent, which brings up this question: How long does it last? When I used Clubman, I get a whiff of it all day long. Ditto Brut and Aqua Velva. But not Old Spice, not even when I use a dab of cologne...

    Gillette Single Rings with British Patent Numbers

    Thread Starter: GBinOZ

    I recently acquired a British single ring and in trying to date it I discovered a multitude of anomalies. There is a thread dedicated to identifying Canada Serial Numbers. Is there any interest in doing the same for British Serial Numbers? I guess the first distinction to be made is the razors...

    Longest lasting Old Spice Scent?

    Thread Starter: CzechCzar

    I recently got a sample of Stirling Spice, and was quite impressed. However, the scent disappears and that is sad. Do either the American or Indian Old Spices last longer than Stirling Spice? What about Indian Old Spice Musk? I guess my basic question is: what is the strongest, best Old Spice...

    My new brush SCARES me

    Thread Starter: Space_Cadet

    This is a serious contender to the title of the weirdest brush I've ever bought. It's a real Boar-Monster (made by some little known artisan). I think the decision to purchase was somewhat irrational this time, to put it mildly. I'll show you the brush and give you it's specs and you tell...

    Night Hawk

    New to the hobby & addicted!

    Thread Starter: Night Hawk

    Hello everyone. I just wanted to say hi and thank you for some great information, even though my wallet hates you. I have sensitive skin and shaved with a Gillette fusion proglide and a can of Barbarsol. The razor burn and bumps got to the point where I would only shave once a week and hated it. I...
