Thread: Single Edge pif for beginners.

  1. #1

    Default Single Edge pif for beginners.

    I'm doing a pif on some things I don't use very often and thought a beginner might like some new goodies to cut themselves with-I mean shave themselves with. All I ask to be included is that you have close to 50 posts on this board and you do not have or have tried a single edge razor. Please post a quote from your favorite movie. I will get a number from random.org to select the winner. This pif will close Friday at noon. Here is a list of what is being pif'd:

    Schick Injector (type m or k, not sure)
    Gem Jr. gold single edge razor
    Semogue 1305 brush (used 4x, just not for my liking)
    Blades for both razors
    Vitos Green-small tub-already have one plus a p160
    Ogallalla Limes and Peppercorn sampler
    Sample of my Bay Rum w/ a Twist (I love this stuff, great in the winter!)
    Sample of GFT Coconut
    Sample of Thayers Medicated witch hazel
    Sample of Booster's Mosswood (great scent and underrated for the $$$)
    Tabac-1/3 of a puck I milled into a glass jar. still have a full one I'm working on.

    If anyone has questions please let me know!

    Great PIF! I thinks I am not a beginner and have way over 50 posts.
    I favor the K.I.S.S. Method.

    Great PIF. To any newbies: if you just discovered DEs but think your Super Speed could be faster, throw your hat in this ring.

    Wow, what a PIF!

    I'm not really qualified. I don't own a SE and haven't tried one, but I've got one in the post (taking forever). Congratulations in advance to the lucky winner.

    Well, I have way over 50 posts, but I've only been using DE for about two months, so I guess that qualifies as a newbie. I also do not own an SE razor.

    I'm not sure whether you'd post to England but...

    I hope I am close enough to 50 posts. I have never tried a SE razor and have actually been interested.

    Thank you for the PIF

    I'm not quite eligible, but I am enjoying the movie quotes.

    Include me out, as I am a confirmed SE shaver already.

    Thanks for running this PIF.

    I do NOT qualify as I've been using my GEM/Ever-Ready SE razors for a couple of months and have 2 in my rotation of 5 razors!

    If you qualify, get in on this PIF ... You'll never know about SE if you don't try!

    I can only hold out so long....and you haven't given it away yet (I think).

    I have not tried a SE yet (and I have been curious about the injectors).

    Movie quote from Oldboy (2003) a Korean film.

    Tough to pick a favorite movie, but this is one of my favorites.

    Not qualified as stated in previous post. I just wanted to add a move line that got past the Censors in the 1940s!:
