Re: Is Hard Water an Issue for You?

The town probably changed the way they processed water. It happened in my town. At one point the water was hard we could smell strong iron. After enough complaints from residents, they later admitted a fault in the processing. My water is still hard, but nowhere near as it was once. That hard water ...

Re: Do You Think Wet Shaving Could Be Trending in 2020?

Now, now... Aye, Gary, madness indeed to base it all on saving money ! Whatever you have spent, you spent it, at least, on products and experiences you wanted to try, rather than just pouring your cash into the gaping maw of Gillette to buy the shaving equivalent of Kraft Dinner. As you may recall, ...

Re: Do You Think Wet Shaving Could Be Trending in 2020?

Couldn't agree more. The process of traditional shaving branched me out to turning as well. The skills gained from traditional methods are priceless. I feel traditional shaving appeals to individuals who value taking ownership and self-reliance. I have learned not only how to lather, but also how to...

Re: Do You Think Wet Shaving Could Be Trending in 2020?

Haha, wet shaving addiction, now that's a whole different issue. Yes, but in my case, I was loving the wet shaving process handed down by my dad and his dad with the cheapest blades, razors, zero brushes, and canned Barbasol and Gillette, and was very happy while spending virtually nothing monthly a...

At age 20, I was working at FedEx as a handler at 3am shift, I worked as a web developer at noontime, and was pursuing a web business as my 3rd job in the evening, all while attending university full-time. I worked hard to pay for my rent, tuition, books, etc. Ramen nuddles was my goto meals mostly ...

Re: Do You Think Wet Shaving Could Be Trending in 2020?

Good points, Murray. Procter & Gamble bought Bevel for an undiclosed amount estimated by many to be around $20M-40M. While Bevel's offering does not include shaving soaps or cream in a tub, their DE introduction to the market as one of their main selling point could be a positive step towards influe...

Do You Think Wet Shaving Could Be Trending in 2020?

Current trend suggests traditional wet shaving is slowly making a comeback. Whether it's economic situations or history just repeating itself, traditional wet shaving may trend sharply in 2020, as more shavers become aware and re-educated on it. Perhaps people are joining shave clubs to save money. ...

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...
