    BBS shave on a one-day rotation: how do you do it?

    Thread Starter: poikkeus

    I have no problem getting BBS shaves (or close to it) when I shave every two or three days. However, when I shave every day, it seems it's impossible. Even with my trusty R41, and a new blade, a one-day turnaround seems unattainable. Okay...experts, savants, let's hear your secrets: what do you...

    Dermatologist opinion on shaving

    Thread Starter: tm3

    I have heard various claims re whether one method of shaving or another is "better" for one's skin, but have not seen much in the way of substantiation. When I saw one of the local dermatologists at a recent social event, I asked him if there was any evidence that any shaving method/practice was...

    Shaving Bags / Cases / Wallets

    Thread Starter: beowulf

    Good morning, afternoon & evening I've been having a look on eBay at vintage leather shaving wallets / bags / cases recently and wondered, are there any modern equivalents available that would have similar compartment layouts for a complete and organised DE kit? I'm loathed to just get a...

    Looking for a milder razor

    Thread Starter: Bumpy Johnson

    I'm looking for a mild razor. I was leaning towards a tech or slim but I can't help but to be drawn to the Parker open combs. I have a RR Mission now, so would something like a 25c be less aggressive? I also know that Joe has other razors and Maggard has some nice looking ones to so any...

    My upcoming scary/silly September

    Thread Starter: rockviper

    Uh oh! I just got back from the sister-in-laws and she had some freebiw things for SWMBO when we were there. She (SIL, not SWMBO) is a runner/jogger and covered 19km this morning. I'm embarrassed to say that I think I would be lucky to do 5 and I used to run cross-country and play a fair bit...

    Thread Starter: chansta

    'Lo Gents! I've got a merkur 1904 on the way. Excited to try it out. Any folks out there have opinions on this bad boy? I like my EJ89 with feathers and astras and wanted something a little different.
