Whole wheat bagels

This week my almost 14 yr. old grandson was out of school for spring break. He spent the day with me and I was inspired to show him how to make my famous blue ribbon winning whole wheat bagels. He did all the work and I was just narrating as we followed the recipe. The result was outstanding. He had...

Define your SOTD

A dash of hot tap water on the soap, load the dry brush 4 seconds, build lather on the face. One lather pass against the grain, splash hot water on the face without rinsing, smooth and touch up - finished! The right soap, right brush, right razor and blade. Perfection!

AAF - is it any good?

Evidently there is a newcomer to US pro football. Do we have any aficionados? What's it all about? I could google it but that's not always as informative as talking to a real person.

Today's race is Martinsville VA. This year Toyota has frequently been in contention.

Re: The Science of Sharp Blog

Lately I've been psyching up to give it another shot. I'm thinking I should devote a day or two to some quality time with two or three straight razors. The Imp Wedge for sure, and another one or two from the stash.

Re: Safety Razor of the Day

Schick P blade showed up today for #22 and left behind a very smooth shaved face. I see it going another 9 or 10. Hopefully.

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...

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 . . .)
