And Pearl heads. :wink2:
The razors I received had the closed comb bottom plates when I thought they were open. I mentioned I liked the closed comb to my guy at Pearl and he sent them like that. I guess there is a bit of a...
If you haven't tried a slant yet, I would say it's worth a shot.
I prefer more mild shavers myself. I would love to acquire a Gillette Tiffany Sterling, or one of the Sterling New Improved sets. ...
Agreed. This is something we've all done repeatedly. Chalk it up, move on, and most importantly learn and enjoy the experience.
Nice thanks. I searched but didn't spot that. Weird how that thread took place almost exactly a year ago. :blink:
There is no date code under the doors.
You guys ever heard of such a thing? Plastic bottom plate. No date code under doors. ?? I don't have time to do pics right now, but I'll try later.
Please do! Thank you.
That was my initial thought. Dry beans in a whisky barrel...doesn't seem like much flavor would transfer over to the beans. Thank you for the response!
I'm a huge fan of beer aged in whiskey barrels, but I'm new to coffee.
Has anyone tried it? Worth it? Any opinions will be welcome and appreciated.
I saw them here:
There's a reason Sierra Nevada sell so many Pale Ale and Torpedo 6 and 12 packs. These are world class beers that you can get at the gas station for around $1 a beer. Great flavor and outstanding...
Fuller's Porter is fantastic.
I'm a huge fan of IPAs. Love me some hops!
It's not a beer that I've really explored in the US craft beer scene, but I do enjoy Spaten and Sam Adams Octoberfest. Both are easily obtainable and very tasty.
Jolly Pumpkin Weizen Bam
To add, beers that have brettanomyces and/or other "bugs" have the potential to age well. Although it will make it more funky, if that's your thing.
I recently purchased a mini fridge with a...
These are some of the best beers around IMO. Very rich, barrel forward, and just downright delicious.
Great thread...thanks for sharing!
lol...indeed they did!
The red tips seem to be more prone to that pitting/brassing on the base plate than other Super Speeds. So that's not a bad guess.
I think I may shave with it and see how it goes. Thanks to...
Ok, I'm thinking that the handle was changed out on a B3 Flare Tip for a 40s style. I was wrong about the base plates, they are identical for a 40s and Flare Tip. Looking at the area where the...
I have possession of it. I'll get some more pics tomorrow with the doors open, and up close and personal on that date code. I've studied it closely, and I'm 99% sure it's a B. I'm also certain it...
I just traded for a 12 pack of this stuff last week. It is a very good beer. Sour and salty for sure.
Did they only have one stamp tool for each letter/year?
Looking closer, I don't think the handle or base plate was replaced. The handle on the Flare Tips had a ring around top, and the base plate...
Not sure what you mean. They made five years worth of 40s style razors with date codes stamped on the bottom plate.
Now the switching of base plates or handles...that makes more sense.
No other thoughts on this? I've PM'd Mr Razor see if he has any info. Hopefully he chimes in.
I'm thinking it must be a mis-stamp.
I know it isn't quite clear in the pics, but it is a B3 stamped on the back of this 40s style. Am I missing something? They went V-Z, that was it right?
Had a great weekend with some great beer. Had Real Ale's 18th Ann Gose, Westbrook Gose, and the best of the bunch...Clown Shoes Luchador en Fuego. A barrel aged spiced stout that is absolutely...
IMO the Merkur 34 and 38C are more aggressive than the other two. Mainly due to the weight of the Merkurs being "HD" models. The 38C being the heaviest I believe. All of the head designs are...
Grabbed a couple of Belgian style beers for tomorrow. Jester King Provenance (Saison brewed with oranges and grapefruits), and Jolly Pumpkin Biere De Mars (Biere de Garde). Jolly Pumpkin just hit...
Thanks Scott! Is that your brush? Not very much information about the Fetha out there. I wonder if Ever-Ready made it.
I told him to soak and agitate it clean with warm water and dish soap. He...
A guy over on Ebay emailed me in regards to this brush that has a knot made of feathers. :blink:
At first I thought he was mistaken and it may be a boar, but upon closer examination....
Going to crack a few Sierra Nevada Torpedo and a local Southern Star Black Crack (horrible name I know) Barrel Aged Stout today.
Had this last year...very good DIPA. Can't wait for it to hit my side of town.
I'll take a case of Dinner and Stickee Monkee, please. Thanks.
Looks like silver to me. Nice catch!
Sam Adams makes a lemonade/beer mix. I believe it's called porch rocker or something. Surprisingly good.
Last night was Humboldt Black Xantus. Imperial stout w coffee aged in whiskey and wine...
People still use it as a post, but it's a little tacky for me. Best bet would be to give it a try. Buy a sample from Gary maybe?
