Re: here ya go

and so much of this stuff has free shipping. ever wonder why stuff less than a dollar can be shipped from china? it's cause the u.s. post office has to deliver it for free due to a free trade agreement. so we end up paying for it while domestic products don't get sold

does gold make a difference?

just wanted to get an opinion from you guys. i have had numerous safety races in the last few years. gillettes, merkurs, muhles etc. i had a gold future a while back and really liked the color so i thought i would try a 34g. as it turns out, the 34 hd in gold is the best razor yet!! for some reason ...

Re: I've been thinking about getting a Futur

Re: Brushes and Lather Quality

i think it's all about density. a less dense brush (ie. shavemac, kent, vulfix vs. a chubby) is more efficient at getting a good quick lather. the only product that makes my omega boar a super brush is palmolive shave stick ground down into a bowl. THAT combination rivals anything else i use.

Re: From the ashes? Phoenix Double Open Comb razor
