The single pass ineffectual shave is the antithesis of what SMF stands for. The single pass perfect shave is our holy grail. Discuss. Chris Damn! You made me end a sentence with a preposition again! Almost attained with a feather AC. that thing is no joke. edit: I didn't shave for 4 or 5 weeks or s...

Re: Does anybody prefer a quick one-pass shave?

A lot of the time I like to just put a bit of musgo on my face with hand and do one pass to have a decent but not BBS shave. It is good if you like the 'little stubble' look. This is how my brother shaves. If you are leaving visible stubble beind, what's the point of shaving? Randy To shorten the h...

The Missus likes the Quercus a lot (on her), and thinks that I'll like it a lot, too (on me). I gather that's one of Penhaligon's unisex frangrances, yes? Yes, it is a unisex fragrance. It is manly enough to wear but girly enough to make you think that the girl smells good even if she doesn't so th...

Re: Quercus is my favorite cologne

...I got complements when I went out for the first time in 8 months last weekend. If you can ask Penhaligons for a sample if you are interested. You haven't been out in 8 months? Order the Large size of the Quercus, quick man! :wink: -joedy ps. Wait until you wear LP #9.... you'll have to peel the ...

Thanks. I just started HRT today to boost my TEST levels until I can afford/get an MRI. It is a gel that is rubbed on upper chest/arms/shoulders. I would prefer giving myself a shot once a week (and probably will start to if I have to continue this my whole life) but I'm definitely a begger in this ...

that would be perfect for you. just so you know, they make them in pink, gold and i believe silver, too. I think I have the gold and pink or want the pink. anyways, the head angle is good for a beginner so you won't have any trouble with it. You will also not have to adapt to the 'smaller razors' th...

Quercus is my favorite cologne

I absolutely love it and recommend it to anyone younger or anyone who wants a more 'modern' scent. It starts off citrus and mellows down very well. Girls dig it too, I got complements when I went out for the first time in 8 months last weekend. If you can ask Penhaligons for a sample if you are inte...

I would say that drunk is close to out of control of yourself/actions/mouth/bodily fluids. I drank 1/3 a bottle of makers mark on ice and had a good fade going on but wasn't drunk. Legally? Maybe. There are probably 10 degrees to getting blasted buzzed, faded, swerved, drunk, blasted, annihilated, a...

Thanks to everyone for help. I got some more results back today that are better but still bad.

You can get them super cheap at cotton blossom crafts. They also sell Taylor Creams and tons of other stuff that you need. They have always given me a+ customer service.

The feather blade is for some serious shaving.
