Hoping someone can find a way to get some into Squire's hands. Once we see that, we can start the hunt in earnest, depending on what he says vis a vis the Yellow Sharp Edge and the Iridiums.

I'm very impressed with the engineering and fit/finish. Am I correct that it is all stainless steel? I am wondering about the gold one also, is it gold plated stainless steel?

Agree 100%. I'd recommend both the Schick and the 46-48 Gillette Aristocrat for a mild and extremely capable TTO razor.

I saw where someone says it's a bit aggressive. No doubt this is a beautiful razor. I'd like to see what the guys say that are using the Ikon daily.

Very nice items with what appear to be very reasonable prices. I like seeing the Bic Astor blades and the Polsilver blades.

The rules state that auctions are not allowed. I am thinking that if it isn't already sold, you might be surprised how fast it sells if you establish a price on it.

My younger brother discovered that without a nice full mustache, he looked, well, no comment. But suffice it to say that in his early 30's he shaved it off for the first time ever, and that was the last and only time he had no mustache. Beards, partial, full, whatever, still need shaping and trimmin...

I have found over the years that blade angle and pressure both are different by blade as well as razor. So -- keeping up with the exact same technique has become so important for me. I would agree with Wendell here. Your angle and pressure combined with the new blade might have had a lot to do with...

Kevin, you've made the decision to make the change, and that first step is the most important. You've got all the time in the world to explore and thanks to our fellow participants here on the forums, we've got somebody to listen and to talk with about it all.

I like the variety, and I am a fan of the sensation of rediscovering one of the products that I've been putting aside for a while, then finding it again and being impressed with it all over again. Variety is truly the spice of life.

Re: Acquisition vs zen

Hi all It's really interesting to me that so many people have a huge variety of razors/brushes/soaps/creams/whatever. Personally, I came to wetshaving because my skin was so bad when I was shaving with a cartridge and gel. It works so well for me, that I don't want to muck about with endless variat...

Mark, the only thing I can think of isn't really much of a change from the random drawing (that is probably the best, even if a little mundane!)

Gary, The snack you are describing is a very popular Item on the BBQ and smoking forum I visit. They are called ABT's or "Atomic Buffalo Turds". I mix in some leftover barbecue chicken or pork with the cream cheese mixture and depending on how Atomic you want them some of the pepper's seeds. I love...
