    2011 R41 - The Quest Achieved!

    Thread Starter: mjclark

    At last I have acquired a 2011 R41 which is one of my Grail razors: It's so funny that it looks nearly identical to the ubiquitous 2013 version and that a couple of mm of the top cap should make such a difference. I'm also surprised to find that the baseplate is a little shorter than the 2013...

    A DE beginner's tale

    Thread Starter: ASD2rules

Over the last months I have thoroughly enjoyed and gotten inspiration from other folk's stories of their shaving experiences, so here is my journey so far. I have wet shaved for 30 years,...

    Taking It Up a Notch PIF

    Thread Starter: SBMennen

    Since I just closed out my starter set PIF, I thought it would be fun to follow it with a PIF consisting of some items that didn't quite work out as I tried to become a little more advanced in my wet shaving journey. My face didn't agree with these items, but I hope yours will. Since B&B opened my...

    1st Time Using a Feather Blade

    Thread Starter: Jeomphroy

    I have always heard how aggressively sharp these blades are and have held off on trying, but I was running low on Astra SP (favorite blade) and need to order more. Now, I have been shaving with a DE for 6-7 years, and straights for 1-2, so I figured they can't be as different as people say. All the...

    Chosera 1K Question

    Thread Starter: cmh737

    I've been using the Chosera 1K for bevel setting. Sometimes I raise a slurry with a diamond plate, sometimes not. Just wondering if anyone ever uses a coticule slurry stone on the Chosera 1K to generate some slurry for bevel setting? Thanks

    A Super Bowl PIF

    Thread Starter: dladuke

    Hello everyone, I have been a member here for several years. I am more of a lurker than a poster, but I have been the recipient of some fine PIF's as well as other forms of kindness by the good people here. I recently purchased Henri et Victoria's Cognac and Cuban Cigars in both the shaving...
