    Tallow + Steel

    I was so much hoping for a scent profile similar to that of Kyoto and Yakushima for over a year. The latest offering was "very citrus heavy" and did not feature the green, woodsy notes of the previous Japanese series. Apparently, it was next to impossible to get all the EO's (imported from...

    Tallow + Steel

    Tallow and Steel is releasing another Japanese scent roughly around mid-September, the exact date to be announced by Ryan.

    Blackland Razors Ti Blackbird

    Just echoing what has been repeated on numerous occasions here and elsewhere, customer service at Blackland is truly exemplary.

    Blackland Razors Ti Blackbird

    David, I ordered mine on Saturday, probably one of the earliest confirmed orders immediately after release! I heard nothing but highly positive reviews and feedback about this one. Needless to say, I'm very excited about trying it out once on my hand.

    Blackland Razors Ti Blackbird

    I have been chasing this razor for a few months now. Apparently, there is problem on the manufacturer's end that Shane has alluded to in this thread. I check my email more often on Thursdays when Blackland sends email notifications but of no avails so far. Hopefully the release date would not...

    *Fatip Slant*

    Jim, how is the efficiency of fattip OC slant for heavy 3-4 worth of stubble growth? I shave exclusively with Merkur 37C slant for three years and after trying the Lupo .72 I realized that the former was not as efficient as I liked to be. It looks efficient to me, I'd like to know your take...

    Thank you for the update Shane, obviously delays are expected in production and delivery due to Covid. I'm sure patience will pay off!!

    Blackland Razors Ti Blackbird

    Blackbird Ti was supposed to be back in stock in March, I don't follow artisans on social media as often as I should, does anybody know of an approximate re-release date? It looks like a new release by Blackland is overshadowing all the excitement over the Ti Bird.

    Comparison of DE Razors in My Den From ~$75 to ~$125 (USD)

    Jim, As the saying goes, wet shaving is a hobby for us. I'm sure the affordable and easily-available Fattip open-combe slant a photo of which you had posted a few days ago might very well be an effective razor for my particular needs. To your point, posts and reviews serve as "enablers"...

    Comparison of DE Razors in My Den From ~$75 to ~$125 (USD)

    I have a burning desire to do the same comparison if / when the Blackbird Ti is released. It is interesting to see by what margin the Blackbird may outperform Lupo. My Lupo .72 solid bar has not disappointed me and I think my experience with it is pretty consistent with the majority of...

    Lupo stainless?

    Loved reading your perspective on Lupo versus more luxurious, expensive razors. I've shaved with my Lupo 72 twice and feel quite happy with it. I'm also waiting to get a Blackbird Ti which reportedly belongs to a higher league. I am so curious to see and feel the difference between the two...

    Blackland Razors Ti Blackbird

    I hope that Shane releases these 'tamed beasts' this Saturday. I have extensively been searching for a highly efficient and forgiving razor for a quite some time. I think this is the one for me. I'm just waiting for that newsletter email from Blackland for the Ti Birds!

    Same here, wonderful customer service and communication with Blackland That, and Vector in Ti ;))

    Blackland Razors Ti Blackbird

    Thanks David, I'll be following the thread to see what you have to say after more shaves with the Ti. It's a done deal for me already, but I'm also having an eye on the Vector!
