Re: Cobra Conversion

I'm down to my last pack of 20 Professional Super blades, and I think I'll swap the modified Cobra into my travel kit. It might take a long time to use them, as I don't travel much anymore, and there will be a period of no sharp shaving implements coming up before long (low platelets). At that point...

Re: NEW: Martin de Candre Shaving Soap in Wooden Bowl

I don't get why people care for this soap. Very thin lather and a strange scent.

Re: Cooking with power outage

So we survived, with the loss of a thirty year old linden tree we planted that snapped right though its 10" trunk. Today we drove from Tatamagouche, NS, to Amherst NS and then on to Sackville NB to inspect the properties that are either being being bought or sold to allow my widow-to-be to settle in...

Re: Cooking with power outage

Power on and off the last few hours. I mentioned to the boss that there was a traditional way of coping with power outages, but I was rebuffed in short order! Prepared food will be heated over rocket stove. While we have no power and no wifi, we still have cellular connections. Wish us luck, everyon...

I have a Kelly kettle and a rocket stove for prolonged outages. I'll be keeping my tinder dry today as Dorian goes right over the top of us tonight.

Re: Crumbles!

You gotta do what you gotta do. Looks delicious, by the way. Nice burners you've got there. Chris Disgraceful, aren't they? The problem is I know this oven well by now, and how long things take. I'm going to have to get used to a new oven in the other house, should it be ready in my lifetime, thoug...

Crumbles!

This morning I have done a couple of things whilst dealing with realtors and lawyers (it seems my dearly beloved has bought a property which floods into the basement. The seller, the realtor and the home inspector didn't quite notice.....) Obviously, we need some comfort food. So two things to repor...

Curious Curry

From what I hear, the British are more obsessed with curry than ever, and the lucky blighters have no end of Indian restaurants in which to indulge themselves. I missed that so much on moving to Canada, where my provincial capital has managed to have one, two, or occasionally, three, Indian curry ho...

Looking back, I wonder why the Chinese 12000 aka CK12 was so effective, but getting the result generally wanted took an exhausting number of laps.
That's an interesting definition of 'effective'!

Re: The Science of Sharp Blog

I can't believe the effective grit of a Swaty is 600! They feel as smooth as glass and you get an edge far better than from a 600 grit stone. Perhaps it's not the size of the abrasive that matters here, but the microscopic scratch pattern on the surface (just like a 2k-polished Arkansas or Spyderco ...

Re: A tribute to the 2006 SMF brush

Before anyone starts up conspiracy theories about who Johnnie was and why he isn't here any more - he was one of the founders of SMF, and I believe Vince's cousin. Cheerful, active and enthusiastic, he eventually succumbed to waning interest and for reasons that I don't fully understand he asked me ...

Re: Lardy Cake

Looks good! Yes, but if you didn't do the folding and rolling there wouldn't be the layers and I suspect that's part of the eating enjoyment. At least it would be for me. Having made one, I realise that one style of lardy cake sold in local bakeries in Wilts was made by doing just one roll out and ...
