Re: Vetiver

Nowadays I'm back in the vetiver mood. I'll use the Cold River Soap Works Morning Ghost soap for a few days. Then a couple of days more with the Asylum vetiver bourbon and soon to be followed with Salter's vetiver cream. The one I'm most looking forward to using is Tim's delightful one-off vetiver s...

Re: Joke of the Day

Items I noticed on a recent cross-country tour: Ad in a Louisville newspaper: “for sale cheap - my son's collection of bebop and rock and roll records. If a 14-year-old's voice answers the phone, hang up and call later”. A sign on a runway at the Great Lakes naval station: “Absolutely no flying perm...

Re: Joke of the Day

An angry wife was complaining about her husband spending all his free time in a bar, so one night he took her along with him. "What'll you have?" he asked. "Oh, I don't know. The same as you I suppose," she replied. So, the husband ordered a couple of Jack Daniel's and threw his down in one shot. Hi...

Re: Gismio Razor?

Makes me wonder where the word Gismio originated. Maybe someone was trying to say gizmo. Other than that, maybe it is a rube goldburg attempt at a self-opening blade chamber that shaves as it is drawn across the skin. I can easily envision a lady using it to shave her legs. Just my guess.

After changing to the Ginger for these several weeks/months now, my scalp has returned to normal now, to my great relief.

Re: Cats, and the Killing Thereof

Even though I seldom use a straight razor nowadays, I heartily agree that a well-soaked beard and a thick dry lather are quite conducive to the best straight razor shaves. Making that lather and applying it are part of the overall straight razor universe. Just as is the perpetual blade maintenance a...

Re: Hypothetically, what would happen if I click on "delete all board cookies"?

Re: Manchurian White badger by Elite Razor

It's been several days since I used the Manchurian. Today's intentionally thin lather was a piece of cake for this big boy. Loaded 4 seconds on the soap and made plenty of the type of lather I was looking for. It gets a lot of water and yields the treat in no time flat.
