    Blade Sampler PIF

    Hey Everyone, Thank you very much for participating! The winners are JBO667 and YKMV. I would highly recommend taking notes on each blade so you remember what works best for you! I did a 1 through 10 scale for each shave on each blade and based it on sharpness, shave quality, and notes. Good...

    Beginner strop question

    I got started with the poor man's strop, I also added in the extra strop. I destroyed the first one learning and am still using the second one to this day. I really want a new strop but it's not a priority. The poor man's strop works perfectly.

    Blade Sampler PIF

    I liked the Feathers the best. I found that I could get about 4 great quality shaves with the 5th being ok if I forgot to change the blade. Also I felt that they were the sharpest. They average was probably around 3. I actually had a giant spreadsheet with notes on every blade but my hard drive...

    Spyderco and Bevel Setting

    It seems like the general consensus is the Chosera 1k, I don't mind the price difference. Just one more question: what is the procedure with using it, I assuming lapping and soaking but is there anything else I should know? Also I have not been able to find a lot of places online that sell it...

    Spyderco and Bevel Setting

    I currently have the M, F, & UF Spyderco hones and was wondering what a good stone would be to set a bevel on a brand new razor. I have tried using the medium Spyderco hone but it is taking forever! Does anyone have any single stone recommendations? I was thinking that just getting a Norton...

    Untappd App

    I love the app. I use it more for personal use than for the social aspect (I do have a few friends how use it but we usually drink together). I like the updated ranking system, it allows for .5 increments. The similar recommendations feature is great for other beers you might like. The only...
