    TOBS Container croap, how many shaves?

    You +1 I Load just a bit on a wetted brush and face lather. I usually lather in my scuttle, but almost always face lather TOBS. It doesn't take much to get a very nice lather going.

    Hunting at the Whitetail Waldorf, Kentucky

    No...its only sort of hunting. We decided to hunt the feild below the barn loft. It was mostly cigars, bourbon and a good talk with family. We did see deer, but no shooters. We would normally be shivering in separate stands wishing we were in the loft smoking Undercrowns and sipping a Four...

    Unusual SOTD

    So I am staying with at my Aunt and Uncle's home for a few days to do some hunting. I left my kit behind as I hadn't planned on shaving for the deer.

    Do you clean the wax off new blades?

    "Where is the razor manufactured? The blades are manufactured in Russia, the handle is made in the USA and the capguard is made in Germany." This is from the product description on Amazon.

    Veteran's Day PIF

    Wow I'm in, great PIF! I have never had the pleasure of using a slant razor and would love the opportunity. What an amazing story of your father's service in WWII and a lander on D-Day no less...I can't live up to that, but I'll share my story anyway. I am currently serving on Active Duty with...

    Gillette to release NEW DE razor for the holidays

    The Gillette branding appears on the underside of the head an nearly every razor previously produced by Gillette. I'm sure the razor was contracted by Gillette and produced by someone else...its not exactly an uncommon practice.

    Fatip alternative or replate?

    For the price of a replate you could by another Piccolo and RazoRock SLOC with money left over. As an added bonus you'd still have the one with plate loss.
