    Raised Flat Bottom family reunion

    Thread Starter: DrAwkward

    The History of Multiple Pass Shaving

    Thread Starter: GBinOZ

    I was browsing some threads on how many passes members make when I came across this comment by bladebuff: "According to my Father back in the old day 40's, 50's or so, one pass and touch ups was a normal shave. When I told him guys do 3 or even 4 passes, he commented "why would you do that,...

    Wax dots: Why?

    Thread Starter: Cksnffr

    I've used a few types of blades that don't have any wax dots on them. I think everyone agrees the dots are annoying, and I find waxless blades safer to unwrap and handle. So: Why do most blades have wax dots in the first place?

    Remember that old barber's book a while.

    Thread Starter: aephilli

    ... back that said to treat a strop with urine? Well, today I sanded some strops and the spot where a great big drop of sweat fell on one is smoothing up faster than the rest of it as I bone and oil it. Maybe the salts and acids help cure the leather?

    Veg has arrived

    Thread Starter: SpaceCadet1

    My wife stopped home on her lunch hour and found the package with Lilac Vegetal. Her initial response seemed mixed. :laugh: Not all bad, but not good either. Her thoughts: "It smells specifically like my grandparent's blue bathroom. Just like old timey bathroom cleaner, old man smell, and...

    New barrister and Mann 42

    Thread Starter: abhikpr

    Hey guys so I saw their limited edition soap where they are only making 140 or something like that. So I am reading the scent profile and am at loss of words. What is the scent on this? Lol I bought it but I'm unsure what I bought. It's limited edition and from barrister and Mann. Enough said.

    A PIF for you, Mr Lurker !

    Thread Starter: mr_eleven

    I thought it would be nice to see if an unnamed lurker would like to come out from under the shrubbery to try and win a very nice shave kit. The only real rule is that you must have a B&B join date no earlier than May 25, 2015, and a post count of 12 or less when you post your interest to be...
