Cut along the lines. Just about any scissors will do.
Our fault entirely. Well done! :spidey:
+1. I'm a recent convert to the BBX, and I've never got closer shaves on the neck as now. Not for everyone, but worth checking out if you like the feel of the blade's edge against your skin.
You may have trouble using the Maggard handle on the Fatip. Let us know how it turns out.
How did it work? At least one user has complained about "blade chatter" affecting the shave, and I tend to agree. I'm pleased as punch, though, with the BBX, which has a base plate.
Juan, it looks scary, for sure -- straights and shavettes scare the hell out of me -- but in reality it isn't. Once you find the correct angle (steep!), it's as safe as a Bic disposable. With other...
If you want a really heavy razor, pair an ATT head with a Matador S5 stainless handle.
Fatip head + Weber Bulldog handle
Bbx / gbs (4)
I'm betting you'll love that ATT. Welcome! :badger:
Weber + Feather is a good combo. The Feather peps up the Weber, and the Weber smooths out the Feather.
Gytis, you are not alone. The BBX (I now own two) has certainly become a primary shaving tool for me, and my other primaries (Fatip, ATT H1 and H2) have seen considerably less action since the BBX...
Why not? It's reminiscent of the original BBX handle, albeit with different dimensions. Both have an old-fashioned surgical look about them, so on that level the M.A.S.H. association makes sense....
I tried it too and wasn't crazy about it. However, the guardless Barbe Bleue Model X solves that problem -- it has a base plate -- and gives a fantastically close and irritation-free shave. I...
Very impressive indeed! :thumbup: How does it shave?
Many handles work with the Fatip. Follow the link in my post above.
I definitely find the 2011 R41 more aggressive than the Fatip, but a lot less smooth. The combination of effectiveness and smoothness that the Fatip provides is unparalleled, IMO. (A possible...
Fatip / GSB (3)
On the vintage side, go with the NEW rather than the Old Type, unless you want a significantly more aggressive experience than you're getting now. On the modern side, the Fatip is an excellent razor...
Welcome to B&B! I'm not big on mentholated soaps, but I do use menthol aftershaves all year 'round (Osage Rub, Master Iceland Breeze, AV). In the winter it's kinda like the hair of the dog that bit...
Welcome, Tanguera! Whether you have facial hair or not, shaving is good for the skin. I'm sure you'll find a method that works for you. How about this?
My suggestion: stick with the razors that work for you. Put the Weber aside for a few months, maybe six, then go back to it. Technique takes time to solidify, and you may find that the Weber works...
Nice goin' -- enjoy! :badger:
+1. "Traditional" is more descriptive than "wet".
Gillette 7 O'Clock Super Plats are good, but I prefer 7 O'Clock Permasharps.
Next time, don't sell your Fatip. Just get a better handle for it.
Case closed. I love Arko. :thumbup:
I rinse the dried lather off my soaps. (Because yuck.) The soaps still last forever, by the way.
Yes and yes. Light touch and correct angle (+solid prep) make for an irritation-free BBS/DFS that can be repeated every day.
PS: My regular razors are BBX, ATT H1 and H2, and Fatip.
First one is OK, but the Slant Stealth? :eek2::nonod::censored: Reminds me of an orthopedic shoe. :blink:
I think you've got a curiosity there. I tried Googling "Fang Blade Co.", then I searched Google Books, Newark Public Library, Rutgers Library, New York Public Library, and Library of Congress -- nada.
These look like hyperrealist paintings. Very nice! :thumbup:
The Omega 10049 is my daily driver. Great combination of backbone and softness, and the size of the thing is simply luxurious. Tremendous value for the money. :thumbup:
Size is a personal thing. My daily driver is an Omega Pro 10049 (height 126 mm, loft 63 mm, knot 25mm). I love the way it covers my face; and when I'm in a rush, it cuts lathering time in half....
+1, definitely. BBS with a whole lot of razor burn just isn't worth it.
Don't worry about BBS. It will happen eventually. In the meantime, enjoy your razors. Change 'em up until you're equally comfortable with all of them; it's a good way to build your technique. And did...
Two shakes of WH + one shake of The Rub = one nice AS
