    Reliable and trusted online vintage shops

    Ditto, in fact I only go to pen stores to buy pens as I have had a few bad nibs from online spree so I rather pay premium but try it before you buy it. Also, gives you a nice feel for the pen and nib amongst options. Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk

    Shaving brush - how do you know its time to change?

    Wondered if folks here have a trick to know when a badger brush has passed its peak and its time for replacement? Are there any telltale signs? Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk

    *Fatip Slant*

    Has anyone bought more than one focs because this razor is so great? I'm on verge to get another one but then I wonder if fatip will bring something else in the near future which might beat this razor. Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk

    Doubling up on razors.

    Just wondering what razors you have bought in multiples and your reasoning behind as I often see many folks buying the same razor twice or more to keep in stock. Just wondering what drives your decision-making! Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk

    *Fatip Slant*

    I shaved with it yesterday for the first time and it felt good. It's quite intuitive for a razor to just glide on your skin and give you a smooth and close shave. I will need to use it more to get to know the razor more but next on my list is sbs razor that i have been waiting to try. Sent...

    Pils and Pils-style razors

    I have just bought SBS aluminium (6) this week along with a fatip slant open comb. Going to try the sbs this week as been using fatip slant which certainly is very efficient and smooth razor. Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk

    Fatip slant open comb - need advice.

    Thanks for your feedback. You're so right about the optical illusion especially when top cap and base plate both are curled. So I have done a second check now with ruler and what not. The bottom pin is ever so lightly off centre by 0.5mm which I think is fine. Slotted the blade in and it...

    Fatip slant open comb - need advice.

    So just got my fatip slant OC in the post and it looks different to my mk1 piccolo. I have not shaved with this yet but been checking the blade alignment and razor itself. The plating quality is still lacking and hasn't improved much since my first piccolo in 2014 as you can see in the first...

    Buying vintage Gillette razors

    Exactly my thoughts which is why I haven't really bought one of the old ones just keeping to the new ones. I think its personal thing more than anything else. Lines you can cross and lines you can't. Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk
