    Muhle DE Blades

    Thread Starter: lancelot

    I find Muhle DE razors to do well in the fit & finish department. They also have weight and balance which seems to suit me. Has anyone tried the Muhle DE Blades they now show on their website? They apparently only offer them in batches of 200. At $87.50 they're not cheap. At one time the...

    Need help identifying this vintage Gillette safety razor

    Thread Starter: omegajinx

    I purchased this razor for a whole whooping $10 yesterday at an antique store. I was pretty sure it was a Gillette Super Speed, but I don't really know. I was hoping someone may be able to help with identifying this razor and possibly even it down to a year/decade for the razor's production date....

    Ark with only mineral oil?

    Thread Starter: imatabor

    Can you use plain mineral oil with these stones or do you need honing oil? I saw that some use mineral oil and kerosene but not just plain mineral oil.

    Hoping this is a "Keeper"

    Thread Starter: DaltonGang

    I just bought this a few weeks ago, and have been badger the seller to accept payment and mail it, from France. I don't think the seller liked it going for the low price. The seller didn't know exactly what it was, other than an "Old Gillette". I am awaiting arrival, however long that will take....

    They call me insane

    Thread Starter: euro

    Everytime when I start to talk about this hobby with someone they really keep looking at me as if I'm speaking a different language. I even showed a guy some pictures of my DE razors on my mobilephone (seriously), when he saw the razor he told me "you are crazy, the blade looks so dangerous". I was...

    Cake or puck?

    Thread Starter: fram773

    It is obvious everyone uses the word soap "puck" because many shaving soaps come shaped like a hockey puck. Shaving Made Easy, a vintage book about shaving, used the word "cake" of shaving soap. This seemed curious to me because, again, everyone uses the word "puck" today on the forums. Now,...

    Well I did it

    Thread Starter: dieselfuel79

    I had the bug, and the urge to try out Arko. But how about buying just 1 stick and seeing if you like it first Brad? Nooooooo. I found a great deal on Amazon.ca, and bought a box of 12. Coupled that with a 100 Astra's. $29 later, and free shipping, and I should have the "goods" here by the end...
