    When did the descent from DE to Carts begin?

    Thread Starter: Greglam

    I'm 41 and started shaving in about, oh, I'd say 1984-ish with any kind of regularity. Obviously the cartridge was the dominant type of razor at that time.

    Favorite Scales

    Thread Starter: fordfather

    I'm looking at all the beautiful razors that B&B members have restored and it got me to thinking. What are your favorite scales to make, and where did you acquire the material. Have you made your own bolsters and shields? As always, pics are welcomed (before and after)! Tips and tricks are...

    Thoughts and questions on my first replate candidate (pic heavy)

    Thread Starter: emt88

    Hello gentleman. So, even though I am mostly a straight razor guy, I have a serious love for Gillette de's. Although my collection isn't all that large, I feel like it is of good quality, which is really what I'm after. A couple of my razors show their age a bit, but this is the first one that I've...

    Researching Synthetics

    Thread Starter: eezee

    I've been researching synthetic brushes and am really leaning towards Muhle. I would like to keep the budget on the low side. I found this over sat Shoebox Shave Shop. Thoughts? http://www.shoeboxshaveshop.com/muba31shbrdr.html

    Thread Starter: Mekanic

    Hey all, I'm mostly just a lurker round these parts. Been interested in wetshaving for well over a year, but finally bought the gear a couple months ago, a Weishi, and a Boar Brush (wanted something cheap, but serviceable to see if I enjoy it, turns out I LOVE it and it has become a ritual I look...

    Home Cooking Spoils Restaurant Experience

    Thread Starter: CaptainTime

    I am a decent cook - not a great one. But, more and more, when I go out to restaurants I am disappointed with the food. Does anyone else have this problem or are the restaurants just bad where I live? Or is it because, as I get better at cooking myself, my palette is more discriminating?

    Best soap recommendation for water conditions

    Thread Starter: Batman

    I travel quite a bit, sometimes to areas with harder water than I have at home. Some of my soaps don't work well. Please recommend soaps that are consistent regardless of water conditions. Thanks!
