Re: Manchurian White badger by Elite Razor

Tim, no clumping or slimy feel with this one. Just soft. Very comfortable.

Re: Refinishing burl wood brush handle

Tim, knowing what we currently know, I'd certainly ask the maker of the handle to consider a finish that doesn't disappear after only a few weeks of use in wet soapy conditions as mine did. I presume a woodworker making and selling expensive handles has wood-turning and airbrushing equipment and exp...

Re: Manchurian White badger by Elite Razor

The Rooney Manchurian continues to amaze and impress every day. Among my badger brushes this one is equally gifted in comparison with the old favorites such as the Sabini Rooney Finest, the 1970's era Plisson HMW, the Made-Rite TGN Finest from about 10 years ago, and the Thater Silvertip.

Re: Schick Proline P-30 (Artist Club size) blades

The Schick P series blades (in my experience) are sharpest during the first 10 shaves, then they gradually become less "sharp" and more "smooth". All of the whiskers are getting cut, but I can afford to apply just the smallest bit of pressure to get the job done. Still at the top of the game, and th...

Re: Photos on SMF

I can do that! (That first sentence in your response is exactly what was happening.) Much obliged!

PS: I was able to delete the troublesome test photo that used to reside somewhere above here. (I went to the Attachments tab and clicked the Delete File button. Hmmm . . .)

Re: Photos on SMF

I'm curious about the fact that some other guys' posts in the Shutterbug Shaver forum contain 10 or more photos, but when I try to attach more than 1 photo (resized to less than 800 in both directions and following the instructions in the Attachments tab) it doesn't work no matter how many times I t...
