    Power tools.

    I have a few nice power tools: drills, impact wrench, reciprocating saw, hammer drill, grinder, sander. Most of my tools are Rockwell, Milwaukee, Skil, or DeWalt. Occasionally I've had a special project where I had to rent some tools. A noteworthy rental was a Makita 15 lb demolition hammer...

    What razor/blade did you use today

    Blackland Dart / Timor (1) Absolutely fantastic shave. But still not sure why these blades are so expensive.

    Kai PINK: blade longevity?

    How many shaves do you get from Feather Pro/Super/Schick Prolines/etc? The pink technology/treatment is supposed to "increase the blade hardness by 70% compared to conventional products." What conventional products are they comparing to? I'm sure other brands do something similar.

    never-stop-learning's Quest for Knowledge

    Interesting. I tried to replicate the drag out of curiosity. I never noticed this drag issue using Officiana Artigiana Milano Stay Traditional and slightly riding the cap or bar. I can only replicate it if I use a completely neutral angle AND/OR use a thick dense lather. I would categorize...

    2013 R41 vs. iKon Tech - Such a Tough Choice!

    I don't own the open comb version, but based solely on the website photos, those are completely different razors. The most significant difference is that the Tek doesn't have a usable safety bar (in my experience it doesn't touch your face, its too far back/underneath the blade edge). The open...

    2013 R41 vs. iKon Tech - Such a Tough Choice!

    "SC Tech" is the Ikon ShaveCraft Tek. It does not resemble the Gillette Tech razor in any way.

    Drag? Can you please explain. I'm genuinely curious but have no idea what you're talking about. Thanks.

    Kai PINK: blade longevity?

    Do the Kai Pink blades really have better longevity compared to the other Feather AC format blades? I have Feather AC Pro, super, and Schick Proline, and they are only lasting me 3-4 shaves. I'm interested in something with better longevity. Can anyone give me some numbers? Thanks.

    How long do things last for you?

    I have 2 cargo pants that I bought 20 years ago. One I spilled paint on so I only wear them for dirty jobs. The other I wear on the weekends and sometimes after I get off work. Except for the paint, they are in good condition and don't really show any noticeable signs of wear. I had some Reef...
