Re: SOTD MAY 24 - MAY 30, 2021

The multi-day growth this morning was heavier than usual due to a less than remarkable SR test shave a couple of days ago, in the interest of making the best of my available stones. I knew today's shave would be great, and it was just that. This was the 6th very close and smooth shave with the littl...

Krampert's Finest - out of business

It seems that yet another resource for soaps and fragrances has decided to close his doors. I wish Brian well, and salute him for 10 years of providing his fellow wet-shaving enthusiasts with some excellent high quality shaving products.

Re: What Did You Hone Today?

This morning I spent some productive time honing the final four of my 29 straight razors. 1. King Hollow Ground pretty old but only about a quarter hollow; 2. King with a bit of a French tip appears to be full hollow, not quite as old as the other; 3. Boker Damascus Magnetic Steel - obviously not li...

Member blade reviews

Would it be possible to create a new "sticky" generic all-inclusive category for any and all of the other equally qualified members whose more modern-day blade reviews might be encouraged? The Squire-dominated thread would remain as a valued research tool while its name and nature discourages the po...

The gent referred to the largest factor, not withstanding the others that have been mentioned. If he had represented it as being the only factor there might have been some discussion as to the comparative degree of importance of factors

Re: Shaving schedule

Over the past few weeks of resting my face 48 hours between shaves I've noticed my facial skin has become more comfortable and generally overall healthier in feel and appearance. This has turned out to be one of the best lifestyle decisions i've ever made. Not to mention I literally doubled my lifet...

Re: What's The Origin of the Face Shaving Map?

Mapping my face and really knowing the grain (and shaving accordingly!) is, IME, the largest factor in achieving close, irritation-free shaves. More important than soaps, creams, balms, lotions, brushes, etc.. Obviously, YMMV, as things like allergies or other individual conditions factor in. Tinma...
