Re: Straight shave howto video, Moss Scuttle Howto & acronym

About the Moss (and similar) scuttles: Does it ever become necessary to take extraordinary measures to clean out the inside of the hot water chamber? (i.e. between the inner and outer bowls) Mold, soap scum, drain flies, Serratia marcescens ... ? I'm not sure it's necessary, but I fill my scuttle's...

Re: FS: NOS Personna 74 DE Razor Blades

So all the blades in that photo are 74's? Right. Supposedly someone at Personna confirmed that. I have tried them, and to me they are identical to the labeled ones, which is the same experience a couple other shavers have had. Blades with arrows like the ones in this image are NOT the same and are ...

Please archive: NOS Personna 74 DE Razor Blades - Last Reduction

Further reducing my stores, I am offering a few of the famed Personna 74 double edge razor blades, not manufactured or offered retail any longer and extremely difficult to find. Although not labeled as such, the shape of the arrows on them (with the barbs of the arrow separated out from the shaft) c...

Pink Cadillac

Yesterday was our weekly errand day, and when my wife and I arrived at the local county library branch, we saw this classic. Perfect for cruising on a warm day.

New Arrivals from Bob's Razor Works

A Gillette Old Type OC razor, as well as an additional handle to use with other razor heads, both from Cooncat Bob's Razor Works and both in what appears to be amboyna burl, arrived. The wood is beautiful. They'll go into my rotation right away. https://i.imgur.com/CGrW4x9.jpg https://i.imgur.com/cS...

Sold: Dirty Bird Scuttle

OK, I've realized that I don't need two scuttles after all. This is a beautiful Dirty Bird scuttle in Blue Rim on Spice, in mint condition. It comes with a hard black rubber stopper that I cut to fit and which cost me $5 at the hardware store; it helps to keep the reservoir water perfectly warm. The...

Re: Vintage Wilkinson 'Light Brigade' DE Razor Blades

But health issues mean that I only have 8-10 more years of wet shaving, so I need to decrease my stock somewhat. A sad message embedded there - sorry to read this. I hate that our members are going through anything.I think I bought a few LB's from you a year or so ago - they are nice blades, no dou...
