Hey Robert, Across from the Wynn there is the Fashion Show mall. They also have a Art of Shaving shop. They stock a lot of DE stuff, mostly Merkur but they have a lot of nice brushes and Dovo hardware.

razor cleaning

Just another stupid question,
When you guys boil your razors to disinfect them, about how long do you let them soak in the hot stuff before retrieving them out? :?

I also showed her your double spice rack on page 27 that shows off your "collection" and she told me not to get any crazy ideas! I told her that was nothin' and I showed her a picture of Dr. Moss's collection and she left the room :lol:

Maas polish?

I keep reading on these posts that a lot of you are cleaning your razors after boiling them with Maas polish. Where abouts do you get such product? I have some metal polish called blue magic for wheels, bumpers, and the like. Is it the same stuff or should I get the Maas variety? :?

Thanx

I also use T & H luxury PSO and I absolutely love it. The smell is wonderful and the texture is perfect. I had a bottle of Mugso and i've tried samples fom AOS and a company Nordstroms carries called Anthony. Those were all heavier and I did not care for them as much. I read In Leisureguy's book tha...

hey, thanx you guys for all of the good advice, I see most of
you are rinseing after the Alum, so I'll try it.
Hey Michael, I had a question-
I see you use a crystal deoderant stick, I see them on

good?

I also have a Bostonion in a silver box with purple lining, It says pat. 1920 on the handle. How long did they make this razor? Are these razors desireable ...

I have an old Gillette bostonian given to me years ago from my mom, it was her dads who died before I was born. I wanted to ask all the Gillette collectors & enthusiasts out there if the razor is d...
