    Once I tried the new, I've never looked back.... And once I added Old Types, R41 and various other OC all of my OC love was reinforced.
    As a former FMF Corpsman I know how the Marine corps feels about any facial hair, anytime. The older and more crusty SNCOs can spot it 8 miles away and come walking with the knife hand, "hey Marine!". No stubble at all, not even on leave while on base. And believe me, motivation to get your shaves right WILL come from the gas chamber.

    The weight of the handle makes the shave very nice. When I first got it the weight was more concentrated on the ball on the end and my first few shaves I got some subpar shaves. The ball on the end can unscrew though and this leaves the weight much more focused on the head. However I realized the ball end just completes the look and added it back. Now that I am familiar with the razor my shaves are great.

    Too late...Ralph has already left Scotland! But on a good note...he's bringing back all the Macallan he can carry, plus is taking a stop in Ireland for some Kerrygold Dubliner Cheese and Vintage cheddar!! Woohoo....he mentioned something about stoppin by Franks to have a mess of grits and eggs and may even share some of his treats if frank gives him a good shave.....he said the Scots and Irish were too drunk....

    And don't worry Johnnie...he is bring back a harem, so his plans didnt get interrupted.... at first I thought he was talking about a farm....he kept saying "brown chicken brown cow..."

    I will have razor and lathered brush in hand when he arrives. I want to keep on his good side for sure.
    I can cook a batch of grits and eggs with no problem.

    He prefers cheese grits, and his eggs over medium with runny yolks...and really loves buttermilk biscuits...if you have some applebutter or sorghum molasses for his biscuit you will make a friend for life....just dont let him drink too much of the scotch or you will see him do his gopher dance Arley taught him!!

    That's what I figured as well. I do have a couple emails out to him, but don't want to flood his box with same emails over and over. Sooner or later we will start to get answers I am sure. It's just hard waiting around.

    Just don't give him honey! It reminds him of the bee hive incident. The last person that tried to give him honey for his buscuit, well, they had a nice memorial service.

    It has been quite a while since I have been blown away by a DE razor. This one is NICE!!!

    I don't like the feel of the handle in the hand very much but think that this will go away once I use it more
