Re: SE expert an SMF treasure

I remember Dave and his forum. I recall PMing him some suggestions on his use of Early Modern English and getting a good-natured response from him. :D

churchilllafemme/John

I just bought 50 Personna 74 blades from John. The package was sent out immediately and I just got them.

I've bought from John, a trusted seller, before and I won't hesitate to do it again in the future.

Re: Has anyone tried the Gillette 3?

Hm, I've got a Feather Neo with twin-blade cartridges and I think it's a very good razor for it's type. I don't use it more because I prefer the feel of a single blade.

Thanks for another great review, Bill!

All things considered, I think I'll pass on this soap. :)

Re: A Guessing Game

It seems people used to loosen the razor head slightly for a more aggressive shave. Maybe this made that a bit more practicable before the advent of truly adjustable razors.

Re: Do I need a boar brush?

Like Wendell, I really like the Semogue 1305 and its particular grade of boar. I have quite a few badger brushes (my favorite badgers are also Semogues) and a handful of synthetics. All work well for me, and all are unique unto themselves. I tried a horsehair brush, but I didn't like it. Mine pulled...

brothers/Gary:

I bought some Personna Med Prep blades from Gary for a very good price. They were mailed promptly and I have have them in my possession. All went smoothly and it was a pleasure to do business with Gary.

Welcome to SMF, Z-2!

I like the Treet carbon blades, also, though I mainly shave with DE razors.

Re: Schick Injector Type L Variations

Wendell, that Type M Adjustable was a really good razor. I don't know if it was available when I started shaving, around 1967, but it would have been a better choice for me than the Type L. (I have an M Adjustable now, but I didn't know about it until I came to this forum.)

Greetings Chris! I dearly miss the short-lived but truly wonderful Portra 25. (Insert heavy sigh here.) Buzz Buzz, I never even knew there was a Portra 25! I have never really fancied color negative film. I have long been a shooter of color positive/transparency/slide film. What I have always liked...

Re: Schick Injector Type L Variations

Paul, my Type L looks like the shiny smooth one on the left.

I also have what I assume is a special edition Type L that has an all-metal handle. I believe it was called the Paul Revere, or such.

Re: Weber DLC and Wolfman

As I recall, both the DLC and ARC finishes were supposed to be more scratch-resistant than the stainless steel used in the manufacture of these razors.
