    Fresh Haircut - Vintage/College Contour. Looks Great.

    Thread Starter: Phog Allen

    Gents, I had been in dire need of a good hot weather haircut. I'd let my hair get way too long and shaggy and in this infernal summer heat and humidity in cattle country, I was at the point of misery. I knew I wanted a fairly tight fade from top of ear to side of crown and needed a photo to...

    Just got my new brush

    Thread Starter: SeabeeRob213

    Stirling badger(they advertise it as finest badger) did a quick cleaning of it. Hand soap, shampoo, Stirling bar soap, shampoo, Stirling bar soap, then a good healthy load up of the fat, too a face lather. This thing exploded with lather, best shave yet. To be fair though, it did get to soak in my...

    Dollar store double edged blades

    Thread Starter: FarmerTan

    Being the frugal (okay, cheap) soul that I am, I bought some dollar store no name blades, 5 for a buck, and am amazed at how well they did the job. Close, smooth, sharp. I nicked myself under my nose, but it wasn't the blade. Completely user error..... or the caffeine! Anyway, anyone else get a...
