    Not as bad as I was expecting...

    Welcome welcome welcome. I got my start last year when the generous members of this section of the forum lent me some straights to try. I now have 5 of my own and I love using them. I still have plenty of room to improve. Just like wet shaving, knitting, golfing or any other activity, you need...

    Do I need a scuttle?

    Yes! And no. I have 2 of them and I love them. My PAA one is great warmed up in the winter. I also have a antique style, new production one. I love having them both, I probably won't get rid of either of them. But I don't use them very often. I've learned to face lather a lot better then when I...

    No longer

    Welcome to B&B and the new great obsession. It's amazing how it really changes your perspective on grooming when you get a good shave. Also if you have any questions ask away!

    Earpro case.

    Randy, a great idea! I'm looking for some sort of zip case if possible, make sure they don't get damaged in transport. But a bag/sleeve is definitely an option.

    Earpro case.

    Hello everyone! My first post in the portion of the B&B community. I have been a shooter since I was young. I started with a family member, continued with the scouts, and now that I am an adult what to eventually start a collection of my own. I currently do not own anything, though I'm hoping...

    Synthetic Brushes?

    I've been using a Satin Tip "The Purest" black bristle. I believe the blades grimm offer them through that big discount sale site. I think mine was $20. I use it a lot and if it gets beat up that's fine. Less prep work and maintenance then a real hair brush, dries fast, great for travel.

    New to Honing, Having Problems Laping

    Cy, it isn't for the immediate future. But eventually I know I will need/want to. I do have a balsa strop with paste. But I also did pickup a straight that has no bevel. So I want to learn how to do the process for my razors, and in general for knives and other such stuff. Can never have too...

    New to Honing, Having Problems Laping

    Hello Gents! I've been slowly assembling the tools required to hone my own straights from the comfort of my own living room. I understand the safe bet is to lap the stones when you get them to ensure that they are flat the first time you use them. I am using a granite tile and wet/dry paper...

    Days off?

    I'm every other day. Unless I need to time a shave with a social function or something like that. Though I do often times take off the weekend if I'm not planning on going out, then I'll shave Sunday afternoon.
