B39A5897-C1D5-45E4-8B9C-F0B007015588.jpeg SOTD 01/18/20 Why does my Rex Ambassador dislike me? My Gibbs #17 Adjustable easily meets my dual criterion (cf face AND head shave proven) even with its short handle. In fact, the handle is shorter and the razor lighter than the Rex which is modeled after ...

I usually fall back on my favorite MWF, but that wonderful Anise scent from the Stirling Glacial Obsidian reminds me of a favorite gum from my childhood, Bl...

I loaded another Polsilver blade and had at it! Wow! What can I say, but that I have some incredible DE razors. The only real differen...

I’d like to acknowledge Dave Saco (ECWS) from my Meetup for the inspiration to pull out my Colonial Silversmith. I keep forgetting what an incredibly great razor design it is!

F5EC5354-51CD-41FE-9447-CAD7DB25F79B.jpeg SOTD 01/12/20 The Occam’s DE is one terrific safety razor. When used with a Feather blade it really can’t be beat! This morning I decided to use one of my preferred shaving soaps, Wholly Kaw King of Oud. The indescribable scent that wafted from the slick, g...

The least aggressive plate is apparently a clone of the Muehle R89. I selected the most aggressive plate which appear...

Not really a fan of this razor. Cranked it up to 9, while protected by a glistening, thick Fat lath...

Not much to say about the process, but I can say that this razor is now part of regular rotation. I soaped up with the Grooming Dept’s Scentless Donkey Milk soap. I love all of Mohammed’s ...

What I really love, and never considered until becoming active on the shaving boards, is the sheer variety of safety razor tools designed for face and noggin scraping. The mildness o...
