    how do you prepare a hot towel?

    Best shave I ever had in a barber shop was 3 different towels that increased in temperature. Sigh. I still get warm fuzzies thinking about it. Really didn't have to shave for two days after. At home it's a quick soak in the sink and then back to bed where it hangs out on my face until I'm ready...

    FT FB Tech for Gold Tech

    Let me know if this is along the lines of what your looking to trade for. I love this razor, but my British Aluminum Tech gives me a better shave so it goes neglected. Ball end, user grade, no issues.

    True BBS I have only experienced after sitting in a barber's chair and having a SR shave administered by a pro. At home it's DFS with BBS "highlights".

    Opinions on Arko Scent?

    So regarding you're choice between 2 scents, ARKO's resemblance to either notwithstanding, ask yourself... "Do I prefer the scent of urine cake or the scent of urine?" Hmmmm.... thought so.

    Knife Roll

    Looks like a great knife roll to me. Keep in mind that these are your tools and they can make your day much more productive and enjoyable if they're the right ones. I'd throw in a couple basics like a peeler you're always struggling to find or that fish spatula that feels perfect in your hand...

    Tree Coming Down

    We had a large limb break off a few weeks ago and decided to take the whole tree down. Pretty amazing to watch these guys work. This is out of my living room window. He's about 25' up.
