3988145D-5778-40B4-967F-58A920B2B7C6.jpeg Good morning to all on this sunny Pearl Harbor Day 2019. I’m referencing WWII because today I shaved with my father’s Gillette Slim. My dad was a WWII Navy vet, who passed in 2013 at age 99. I’ve had this razor since I went through his things after his deat...

AC64947F-CFB4-40D1-906F-CD4C5F154CFB.jpeg I’m liking this razor more and more every time I shave with it. I do use some of my razors for just face shaves (i.e. Rex Ambassador), but my top criterion is versatility. If a razor has a sweet spot that delivers both head and face utility, that ticks all ...

BE1587CE-C4FD-4824-8B1E-FD438531591B.jpeg The Jones Shake Sharp is deceptive-looking. It looks like a 1912 Gem razor, but uses DE blades. When I first examined the blade exposure, I was prepared for an aggressive, technical shave. However, the shave was highly efficient and surprisingly smooth. The...

Re: New Run of SS LUPO

Actually, Gary, the SS Lupo has no such specifications. It’s just a very efficient and smooth razor for a great price. I finally was able to snag one this last Monday. I purchased the razor, and two hours later it was again out of stock! If you’re interested in an actual review ‘Ruds Shaves’ just fi...
