Re: Cyril Salter solid shaving soap (tallow)

In honor of the 40th shave on this 70g puck, I've shredded and pressed it into a push-up tube. The wooden bowl wasn't working out well for me. The puck was loose and sliding around. The tube is going to be very practical. I rough-guess it has about 40 to 50 shaves left. For your viewing pleasure, I ...

Re: Package incoming from Pakistan

The seller refused to ship to HI. That's the problem as I understand it. This was something simple like an inexpensive little dress or something a 2 year old would wear. That's what moms and grandmothers do, they shop on the internet and buy this and that for the kids. :D

Re: Package incoming from Pakistan

I may have a lead. It seems my daughter who lives in Hawaii bought something, but the seller doesn't ship to HI for some unknown reason. So she had it sent to me 3700 miles away. OK. :D We're going to visit them in a few weeks, and we can bring it with us on the plane. How about that! P.S.: two days...

Re: Occam's Razor

The Occam's that I have is the most recent design. The center of the handle has been removed, making it lighter of course. Also, they changed the guard to make it smaller. I don't know what that means but it is described in the text on Classic's page just beneath where the videos are located. Mine i...

Re: Schick Proline P-30 (Artist Club size) blades

Gene, just now I took a look at Colonial Razors' website and evidently they are not currently listing any available razors. In my case I have an aluminum General head in the light gray finish.

Package incoming from Pakistan

Fedex has notified me that 2 days from now I am to take delivery of a package that was picked up today in Pakistan. I have the tracking number. To the best of my knowledge I've not ordered anything! What are your thoughts?

Re: Shaving soap or cream of the day

For this morning's shave, and the next couple of weeks or so, I've come back to the Cyril Salter's tallow hard shaving soap. I'm looking forward to using it again every day for a while.

Re: Safety Razor of the Day

To start the new year off, I loaded the General with my very last remaining blade (Kai Mild) and enjoyed yet another never-boring but always taken for granted near-perfect shave. (This blade will last me a full month.) Meanwhile I've ordered 3 Schick Proline P-30 Artist Club blades from TryABlade. T...

Re: Occam's Razor

Just following up on the OP --- Occam's razor (or Ockham's razor) is a principle from philosophy. Suppose there exist two explanations for an occurrence. In this case the one that requires the least speculation is usually better. Another way of saying it is that the more assumptions you have to make...
