    1965 razors and cabinet

    Awesome collection! That display case is the perfect item to show your stuff off too.

    Why do people bother with The Veg?

    I think it's a "tongue on a 9 volt battery" thing. You just have to experience it for yourself. I have also learned that when anyone says "here, smell this", to run away. I may be chosen, I may not be chosen, I will never find out.

    The greatest soap on Earth: Tabac

    After reading several posts about Tabac's scent I did an experiment with my 3 brothers that are not into traditional shaving. We are all in our early 40's to 50 years old. I told them to close their eyes and give me their opinion of the scent. I got responses such as "classic, manly, spicy...

    Synthetic woes

    I have an Omega "S" and a Satin Tip and I will say that I DO know what you are talking about. I don't use a finger from my free hand though, I just wipe the side of the brush on my face at the beginning of the next pass.
