Re: Gillette Fatboy F-1 Restored (video)

Thanks, Murray. It's interesting that you mentioned the length of the video. I grappled with that as well, but there are just many stages that needed to be showcased to appreciate the work that goes into restoring these razors. Most people prefer no more than 5 minutes, but I really didn't want to c...

Re: Gillette Fatboy F-1 Restored (video)

Thank you, Bill. I didn't keep track of time, mainly because it was done over a few days. However, if I were to have no breaks, start to finish would take about 3-4 hours with my way of doing things. This includes time needed to soak and sanitize pre (with hot water and soap) and post cleaning (with...

Gillette Fatboy F-1 Restored (video)

Let me know what you guys think. Restoring a Vintage Double Edge Safety Razor - 1960 Gillette Adjustable F...

Re: Bay Rum Shaving Soap Release with 20% Off

Ah, ok. Thank you for the feedback. You make a good case for us to reconsider that detail on our packaging. Omar, thanks for the reply. I wasn't very clear in my statement. My problem with FO (fragrance oil) is that almost all forms of it burn my olfactory. My skin isn't sensitive to it, as far as I...

Re: Bay Rum Shaving Soap Release with 20% Off

Thanks for a great question, Murray. We don't like to reveal the blends, ratios, etc. However, they may be essential and/or blends of oils to get the desired scent. Because our soaps are made for sensitive skin first, we aggressively limit any ingredient that may cause irritation. For example, how d...

I forgot just how screwey that method was until I watched that video yet again. Let me be more specific, tried to watch the video again. I have never been able to get through it due to his "cult terminology". For me it's a turn off each and every time.

He passed away in December 2015. Some reason I thought it would be long ago. Just watched one of videos https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B3DlZewauFY and it sure does look strange, definitely would scare the crap out of beginners trying to get into wet shaving. I can't imagine the buffing method is go...
