Re: Amazing NBA finals game

In games such as these, I just sit back and enjoy every minute. I have no stake in the outcome, but the competition is ferocious. I admire the excellent performance of the Raptors after losing early.

Re: Brush of the day

Gary, I notice the SilkSmoke gets more use for you than the Synbad restore/reknot you did a few months back. Do you mind giving a little info on whether you prefer the Silksmoke and why? I am enjoying my Synbad but do like the look of the Silksmoke knot. See my response in Shaving Brushes. http://f...

They're racing this weekend at Charlotte. I believe it's called the Coca-Cola 600.

Re: Starting over with an open blade

Tim, one truth I've learned about buying straight razors is that one man's edge may be called shave ready and properly done, but the next man disagrees. A razor probably has one blade but hundreds or thousands of edges as long as it is useful. Few are perfect, thus the safety razor with disposable b...

Re: Zoysia

It sounds as though I shouldn't be expecting very good results this time If it doesn't do well in hot dry climates. My planting was bad timing. We've had record rains in the past week or so since I planted it. Torrential soaking rains are never helpful with seeds. I've been curious about St. Augusti...

Re: First razor for young son?

It would be cool if Bill (wrm2012) would stop in and give us an update now that 2 1/2 years have passed since the original inquiry.

Re: First razor for young son?

I hope he took our advice and found a Krona! If so, I'm sure he's still using it and will continue to do so for years to come. 8)

Re: FS: Sebum Gold Soap/Serum Set - Final Reduction

Considering the packaging consists of glass, wood, and cork, even after the soap is gone, it'll be too valuable to just discard!

Re: On the subject of fidelity

A couple of years ago my searching days ended. My fidelity is for comfort and security. Changes I make these days are for sport, and they always bring enjoyment. Changing razors means the General rests a few days each month so I can sharpen and enjoy the straight razors. Twelve brands of soaps and c...
