    Frye Boots Anyone?

    I recently bought the Frye Harness 8R in chocolate and i love the leather. However, they put a very thick wax coat on it to give it a "vintage" look that the salesman said would come off. Any recomendations as to how I could facilitate the removal of heavy wax.

    Boots

    Sorry for the thread necromancy. I just bought the Frye Harness 8R in Chocolate.

I don't like how the wax looks but love the...

    Let's talk about shaving the head....

    So I have recently started shaving my head with a M3, I tried the headblade but I guess the spacing was too tight since it didnt really work well. This may be a silly question but what do you guys wash your head with? I have been using a nivea face wash, since it seems I should use something...

    Need some help.

    I am going to do some restoring on these blades, however what will happen to the etching? Will it become less visible (will I remove the blacker part of the etching) is there anyway to restore the etching? At the moment I have 220, 320 and 400 grit sandpaper and was going to buy 600 800 and...

    Need some help.

    I was looking around at some fo the antique places when I went home and found two straight razors that the guy was selling for $12 total. I don't know if they are a good brand or anything since I have been using strictly DE's for a while now. The scales are broken and I almost didn't buy them...

    choosing a blade

    Send me a PM and I will send you some of the sample pack I have left over that I am not using. I finally settled on Red Personna and Feathers. Not sure what I have but I will ship a variety to you. Sending Red Personnas, Merkurs, Derby, Dorco and Crystal your way.

    If you only had one razor, one blade, one cream or soap, AS, etc.

    Razor - Gillette Red Tip or Ranger Tech Blader - Red Pack Personna Cream - T&H Grafton Brush - Shavemac 441 AS - Nivea replenishing balm (or the discontinued American Crew stuff that I can't find)

    What is the Oldest Razor in Your Collection?

    Another Gillette Adjustable Id request please

    That my friend is a Gillette Slim Adjustable a very nice razor. Just remeber to loosen the doors before adjusting and the higher the number the more aggresive it is.

    Make-up brushes?

    MAC is really good make up. MY wife is a cosmotologist and has taken a couple of make up classes and she almost exclusively buys MAC. It's a little expensive but you pay for what you get. take her to your local Nordstrom mor MAC Pro store (not nearly as common but have a much greater variety.)

    What's the deal with T&H 1805?

    You find them up from time to time. A chance to recoup some of your money. Protip: not sure if you want to keep the cream in a tub yet dispense it with a tongue depressor or equivalent if you are worried about contamination.
