Je n'ai pas besoin de cette hypothèse.

Hi Chris, I'm curious... What are the assumptions that you have no need of making?

The Trac II came out in 1971 I believe. It was the first double blade razor. The two blade concept was based on a concept they called hysteresis. The idea was the hair that was being cut would be pulled somewhat out by the first blade and then be cut again by the second blade before it had time to f...

Re: MWF -- A newbie's review

Hi Jeff, Sorry it didn't work out for you. My experience was much the same as yours and hence the reason I sold them. I got razor burn. I didn't want to try selling the puck I used so next I'm going to try Superlathering with it and a cream I won't use by itself. Anyway, happy birthday man! Hope it'...

I'm a little Clubman gunshy after buying a bottle of Lilac Vegetal. I didn't realize that vegetal meant rotting vegetables mixed with cat whiz.

Well Gordon, then with you and Squire in agreement, I am in good company! Part of the downside to being a noob is not having all the history of all the water that's gone under the bridge. If this has been discussed at length already, please pardon!

The way I see it is use the learner blades to get technique down, (Derby, Crystal, et al) and once technique is learned use the top shelf blades. I've been thinking about this lately and I think you may be spot on. I'm not sure the traditional advice about jumping right in to a sampler pack is the ...

I suspect it really is NOS. That package looks unopened to me. I think the lack of color appearing on the numerals is probably just a bad photo. For the money he wan't though, I would think he would take better pictures. Not a very good marketer!
