will you be buying a replacement?! Already on to the next tub and new bottle of Booster Polar Ice A/S to celebrate. I've had the old tub for over three years (four?) and it was sitting around 1/3 before I added water to loosen it up and then in a determined effort for the last three months used it ...

I also have been using this razor every day for over a year now. Ahh, fidelity. Or, I just don't have the time anymore to futz around with anything else.

Does that fellow Gordon post anymore? :wink:

Re: Best Place to Buy Feather Blades?

I used a Feather blade for the first time this morning and am already sold on them. Certainly superior to the Derbys or Merkurs I have used for years. Where do people get the best deal on the 100-blade boxes? I know you are an experienced wet shaver, but wait on the Feather blades. Use them for a c...

Stephen Fry offers his thoughts . Of course there will be deranged people who will rejoice in their weird conviction of his eternal and infernal roasting. If hell has Christopher in it, then I’d like to reserve my place there now. Hear, hear! Have to agree 100%. If heaven is full of "Christians" th...

Why am I not surprised it isn't available in their shaving soap. What I wouldn't do for a rose AOL soap, it doesn't bear thinking about.

I use Book Depository. Books arrive in Canada tax-free and due to an advantageous currency exchange they are nearly always cheaper than Amazon.ca.

Squire, I have an uncanny ability to make stainless metal rust and make wood rot. I think my water has something to do with it.

Bath/Shower Brush

I've come to the conclusion that wooden, natural bristle bath brushes are not compatible with water. They crack within weeks and begin shedding bristles not long after. Can anyone recommend something...synthetic *shudders* that I might get a little more mileage out of?

Wendell, I have the Sony touch, last years model. It sports a touch screen and buttons. I can't stand dirt or fingerprints on the screen as they are too noticeable (it also has the pearl screen). Fingerprints on the iPad doesn't bother me as the bright lcd overpowers them (if that makes sense). The ...

The Pearl e-Ink is much clearer and easier to read than the original e-ink -- and that was unbelievably impressive to begin with anyway. Swipe and touch means that my wife will no longer get annoyed at the constant clicking sound that the D-navigator button on my original used to make as the button...

I've always wondered when preference would swing back to softer brushes instead of the elusive, heavily "doctored" stiff black shafts with milky-white bleached tips. I've been using a BK4 for a few months now. Hey Richard, your comment makes me curious. Are you saying that Rooney Heritage and other...
