    I forgot the name of a bar soap

    and I cannot remember it nor does the merchant have it any more. Perhaps one of my black brethren could help me. I bought it from Walgreens in the section devoted to black men shaving needs. It was a bar soap, yellow, and a good size. Maybe 4" long by 3" wide. I think it was meant to be used as...

    R41 (pre-2011) vs R41 (2011 and later.

    Now, that's interesting about the head on the Merkur 1904 (41C). I think I might have had that razor a long time ago but, as you say, the handle is far too short for my hands and I seem to remember it being kinda light. This was before I realized what a great head it had. The 2009 R41 Muhle OC...

    R41 (pre-2011) vs R41 (2011 and later.

    I just ordered a Fatip and it's in the mail. I am really looking forward to it. I might have to take a look at the Pilot Mariner that you mention. Now quit it !!! I had this RAD whipped until today !

    R41 (pre-2011) vs R41 (2011 and later.

    OP here, and I call it the 2010 because that was the last year it was produced. This has turned into an interesting discussion and I think that I got my answer. I am looking for another 2009 and it sounds like a Fatip might be it. I have about a 5 razor rotation now and I always look forward to...

    R41 (pre-2011) vs R41 (2011 and later.

    I think that I have the dates correct. Pre 2011 is full open comb, 2011 and later is the 1/2 open comb, 1/2 bar model. I have read about different versions of the 2011+ but that does not interest me. In my fumbling hands, the R41, I think pre 2011 is the one I have, a full open comb, is the...

    I ask your help to test my theory

    This is so odd that I just noticed today. My usual routine was to open the DE part way, rinse it off and set it down awaiting the next shave. Following that procedure I would get 2-3 shaves per blade. I use the Gillette Bleue Extra. Well just this past week, I had forgotten to open it up and...

    How many times do you use the same blade in your DE razor?

    Handwriting improvement.goal, not the game!

    Desert, your sample is perfectly readable and light years better than my scrawl. When I take the time I can do a passable job. I just have one quibble with your sample in that I call it printing rather than writing but then again, anyone who criticizes it is plain crazy. It has its' own style...

    I have a new pre-shave product

    that I would like to share. I don't post much since I have settled into my routine and have taken an injection to control the AD. Anyhow, the new product is a shave gel that I use as a pre-shave and it works absolute wonders...

    Favourite Pen Manufacturer

    I voted other because there are too many that I like. But what I always keep an eye out for at good prices is Bexley. They have never failed to impress me and there is always at least one in my pocket. I also own one Nakaya and it might be the most beautiful but it can be rotated out.

    Pilot Numbering System, Anyone Know

    They are a mystery but this site is very handy when looking at Pilot. http://kmpn.blogspot.com/2011/06/pilot-custom.html It's such a great reference that I think it ought to be Wikied somewhere.

    Disappointing pen?

    I just got my 1st Edison, a 2013 Morgan LE, and I have not inked it as of yet. I was a bit disappointed in the weight because I had thought it would be a bit heavier plus I was expecting it to be a bit more garish. It's a little bland. However, those complaints will all disappear if it performs...
