    Random soap PIF - almost free

    Awesome PIF, @dfoulk!! I'm in, if it's still open (you have amazing "taste" in soaps and have chosen some top shelf ones)!!

    "Timor" blades?

    You are very generous and an excellent source of blades for our Participation PIFs. Please don't send the box yet; I'm in danger of an avalanche with all the blades you've sent for upcoming Participation and Challenge PIFs.

    "Timor" blades?

    Checked my "stash" and I have a tuck of Timor blades that I haven't tried. Once I'm done with these awesome KAI blades, I'll need to give the Timor blade a try.

    UK PIF - Gillette razor, Tabac soap, blades, boar brush, Shulton Old Spice and.... a nice bottle.

    Wonderful and generous PIF!! (Some of my forebears were from the UK, does that count?) Respectfully not it.

    Participation PIF - The Mysterious KAI Blades

    The KcG is the next razor that I'll try the Mysterious KAI Blade#3 in!! So far, I've tried it in the Merkur 20C (very mild razor) and the Gillette Slim (varying between 4 - 6); both combinations performed very nicely. I dropped a Racer Super Stainless into my Merkur 20C for in-participation...

    Participation PIF - The Mysterious KAI Blades

    Great video!! Very engaging and loved hearing about the festivals in Japan!! It must be quite an experience to be close to those huge drums and the roar of the crowd!! I did notice that even on your 3rd pass, you could hear the blade. (I'm going to try one of my remaining blades in my KCG razor...

    Participation PIF - The Mysterious KAI Blades

    Mysterious KAI Blade#2 (6) TL;DR - Got brave, turned up the Slim, excellent shave, some irritation Equipment: Gillette Slim (on 5) with MEM Olive Results: Turned up the Slim a notch and definitely felt more blade. The MEM Olive has great slip and protection and I was feeling a bit brave. (I...

    Switching Hands?

    I'm also a switcher - right hand for my right side, left hand for my left, but always need to clean up a bit more on my right side more due to the swirling direction that my beard grows in on that side.

    Participation PIF - The Mysterious KAI Blades

    I'm thinking the same thing. I'm a bit envious of guys who get 11, 12, 20 shaves from the same blade the I get 4 to 6 shaves from. My beard really wears down the edge of most blades.

    I hear it's rough going until the dogs hit the tundra, then it's smooth sledding!!

    Participation PIF - The Mysterious KAI Blades

    No, you're not the last; I have several who have not reported receiving their blades yet. No one from Asia or Canada has reported in yet, and I'm waiting to hear from a couple of recipients from CONUS.
