Excellent shave. And the Harris Pink is a tremendously nice change from Arlington and Trumper's Limes in the a/s department. 8)

I have no doubt that some eBay sellers have made a handsome return on their investments. When you see someone regularly posting razors with a starting bid or BIN price of $200, I have no doubt a good bit of that is profit. Sure, you could look at collecting razors as an investment. I'm considering h...

With aftershaves, I'm particular and don't use them every day. My current preferences are: 1. Trumper's Limes for summer/warmer weather. 2. D.R. Harris Arlington for cooler weather. 3. Lucky Tiger aftershave for any time (no alcohol). 4. Kiehl's Blue Astringent for very hot weather. One's I don't us...

I think brush maintenance is quite simple. Rinse thoroughly, shake out the excess water, and allow to dry outside the bathroom in a sunny place. I use my boars more than my badgers, and their heavy-gauge bristles take longer to dry - even more than 24 hours on damp, cloudy days. I avoid using a boa...
