Re: What bath soap are you using right now?

I found them at Dollar Tree. Three bars in a pack for a dollar. Bought in bulk online, and they shipped it to the store where I picked them up for no extra charge.

Re: Where to buy straight razor pins?

Chris, my preference is to not have any washers between the razor blade and the scales. I think the surface area would be too limited, which would result in loosening of the blade within the scales in a much shorter period of time. I believe the larger surface that is pressed against the blade on bo...

Re: Friday's shave

Today's Friday shave was courtesy of a brand new Schick Proline blade in the General V2, Mike's Natural Lime soap, and a return to my ever-capable Silk Smoke synthetic brush, following a couple of weeks with the Manchurian Rooney.

Re: Where to buy straight razor pins?

Thanks Bill. Very good information and I learned a lot from the video. He makes it look easy. I've always been a bit intimidated by this part of straight razors. Hopefully not so much now that I've seen this video and read how well your project turned out for you.

Re: Where to buy straight razor pins?

Awesome! :D Very creative, and one welding rod probably contains enough material for a hundred pins, if not more, as you say. This brings up another question - what tool do you use to cut the pins, and how do you smooth off the ends of the pins before you put the washers in place and peen them?

Re: Shaving soap or cream of the day

Lately I've been using Mike's Natural soaps, alternating between Vetiver and Lime. These are good soaps. No suds, just the creamy and bountiful lather that's protective and slick.

Now I see you are a vendor. SMF has a separate forum for posting about your products - Shopping.

If you disparage other vendors and their products you might ruffle some feathers.

Re: Worcestershire sauce low/no sodium substitute

Chris and Brian (thanks for the information posted here), my interest is triggered by taste. A few days ago I made a simple recipe for marinated chicken that includes about 1/3 cup (but specifically says don't add additional salt), but we didn't appreciate how incredibly salty the Worcestershire see...

I would like to get that if shipping cost is free!
It's a genuine bargain, worth paying shipping. However, I realize you may be living in an area of the planet where shipping can be expensive.

Re: Fountain Pens

I've had my share of red too. I think the context might change the impact/nuances of the use of red ink. Coming from an authority figure directed to a subordinate - yes, intimidating and usually disappointing. However, when there is a special or personal ongoing exchange of non-threatening remarks, ...

Re: General razor - newly redesigned model

Honestly, the difference in width is something that appears to be negligible in practice. When I first started out with the Cobra, I had that thought, but it took no time at all for my subconscious to adapt immediately to the differences, and I have never experienced any problems in this regard. If ...
