    I can hear my razor cutting whiskers?

    Thread Starter: sandstone

    Iíve been DE shaving for two months now and I am happy and content with my progress so far, however I am curious about the sound my razor sometimes makes. Even at an extremely shallow angle I can hear the slightly metallic sound of the blade cutting my whiskers. Any shallower angle and it seems...

    Opinions on Razorock XXX

    Thread Starter: Porter Hayes

    Hi all, I'm considering picking up a tub of Razorock XXX because I've heard such great things about it. That being said, I'd like to compare it to soaps that I've already used. In terms of face feel and protectiveness, how would you rate it against Mike's? As for slickness, how would it stack...

    Good, cheap soap or cream

    Thread Starter: eleuther0s

    I'm sure some of you saw my post from earlier this week, and I apologize once again if this is a duplicate thread, but I just started shaving with a blade about a week and a half ago, namely because I am a student and need to save money. I am looking for a shaving cream or soap that is cheap but...

    What is your favorite mild razor?

    Thread Starter: justino_14

    I would say I prefer mild to aggressive, but not so mild that I have to do a lot of passes to get all the hairs. Mine right now would have to be EJ DE89 and it was my first razor too. If you're into mild razors, what's your favorite?

    Texas Red Chili Recipe

    Thread Starter: DoctorShavegood

    I thought I would post a chili recipe that is totally different than what you probably make and eat now. It has no tomatoes or beans in the sauce. Its a very traditional old way of making chili. The finished product has a very bold beef and pepper flavor. Not for the timid. It's not a hot recipe...
