Re: SE expert an SMF treasure

I bought a bunch of heads from Razorock/Italian Barber, including the 37 slant. I've only used it once so far. Lately, for slants I've mainly been using and liking the Maggard and the Phoenix Alpha Ecliptic. The Phoenix open comb slant has been a little too aggressive so far with the blades I've tri...

Re: SE expert an SMF treasure

Besides Dave and Themba, we're also missing Phin, an injector razor specialist. All of them shared my love for the thicker blades, so I miss their shared interest in using alternatives to DE blades. My other minority interest is in slant razors, and I don't know if there's anyone here who specialize...

Re: Bay Rum Shaving Soap Release with 20% Off

Now I get it. I would imagine that with FO's, people can develop sensitivity after a certain amount of exposure to similar chemicals.

W-1 Super Speed Sold.

I don't have many Personna injector blades at all, but I now have a lot of Schicks - Plus Platinum old stock, somewhat recent Chinese ones, and American-made ones from the 1990's.

Re: A Guessing Game

The purpose of the prongs is to hold the blade in a way that makes it easy to rinse clean and then close up the razor again.

Possible caution about electric dishwasher boosters

I tried a longer soaking with Oxi-Clean booster and a Schick adjustable injector razor (Type M2), and something happened that might or might not have been caused by that. I had just gotten the razor in the mail, and I didn't check the condition carefully except to notice that it was dirty. After I r...

Re: Has anyone tried the Gillette 3?

Is it a lighter handle than the Mach 3? I'm guessing that it is lighter, like the current Sensor razors made in Asia and not sold in the USA.

Re: SE expert an SMF treasure

Nobody thought back then that there would be a new single edge razor made, let alone several.

Gary, your mention of Dave is ambiguous - is he still alive?

(By the way, another one of my favorites, Themba, has been gone a long time, but I assume he's all right, just not posting anything.)

My attempt to resist R.A.D. Is being tested by eBay listings for these razors.

Re: My New Kind of S.A.D. - Slant Acquisition Disorder

I'm glad someone else is here to explore the 4-dimensional space carved out (created? delimited?) by slant razors. :) (See earlier posts in this thread...) According to a review at The Sharpologist, the Maggard slant head design is based on a Mulcuto, so we're probably using very similar razors ther...

Re: Phoenix Injector Razor for $18 (copy of Schick Type L)

You confirmed my educated guess, based on the quality of the bakelite razors I got from Phoenix. If I didn't have so many Schicks (and a Gillette, Personna, and Pal injector), I would snap it up. I may get one anyway out of curiosity.

Re: My New Kind of S.A.D. - Slant Acquisition Disorder

Forget the "hammer"; I'd recommend the Maggard slant head, even though its dark gray color doesn't match many handles. I'm using it with the dark red bakelite handle from my Alpha Ecliptic slant razor. For that matter, I like my Alpha, too, which is color coordinated red bakelite. (You can get an al...
