Re: SE razor problems

The blade stops are still there although barely. I think the spring holding the cap down is weak and let the blade slip. At any rate, the Feather Weight is on the shelf and will stay there.

Re: Question for you old farts and retirees?

Yes, I am retired from my former employment but within the last year or so, I've become the head pastor for my church. So I shave everyday cuz I think the position I have been blessed with requires it. Besides, I like a good shave. Great way to start the day I think.

Re: Chicom Gillette Sword

I like the Treet Silver blades which are also carbon steel. I get 2 really fine shaves out of them and then they quit working for me. But those 2 shaves are really nice.

Re: 6 Treet Blade Reviews

I also like the Platinum Super Stainless, but not quite as much as the Dura-Sharps. Are they no longer making these?

I don't know if these have been discontinued or not. I do know they are readily available online right now though.

Think I'm going to get some cuz they are really good for me.

6 Treet Blade Reviews

I decided that I needed to investigate Treet blades after stumbling across their website. Treet makes a lot of different blades and I was intrigued. My findings are not scientific but a result of my use of these blades. It's a YMMV thing as is all things shaving. So I ordered the a few and had a go ...
