    Are Artisan Products Better Than Drugstore Ones?

    Where I live, drug stores have canned products and shave butters. I can order Palmolive Cream online for $8, or a stick of Arko for $5 (gets cheaper the more you get). Williams Mug Soap and Van Der Hagen Deluxe are available from a national chain with free ship to store, but I can't just drive...

    Blade Tracker Spreadsheet

    Google Docs link - Add to your Google account from the "File" menu, or copy and paste to your favorite spreadsheet software. I thought I'd share this spreadsheet that I came up with to track my blade rotation. When I started out a few months ago, I went crazy with all sorts of different brands...

    Cien 2 blade razor

    In the USA, yes. I shaved with it today and got a very nice shave. At $.20 per cart, I only need them to last 1/10th as long as a Gillette Fusion and I'll be a happy camper. If I end up in Lidl again, I'll probably stock up if they have more. I'll only be using these while traveling, but my...

    Newbie pif!

    Nice PIF! I've always wanted to try a slant (well not always, I had never heard of them until a few months ago). Not in because I'm CONUS.

    Cien 2 blade razor

    I bought the Cien 2-blade pack at Lidl today on an impulse. It came with 25 carts which looked like they would work with my Atra handle. It turns out they do, so that's nice. They even "flex"more than the Personna Twin Pivot Plus, because they don't have the solid piece of plastic designed to...

    Participation Report #3 I finished up the pre-2016 Derby Extras. The first shave with them was pretty good. I tried it in both of my favorite razors (Timeless .68 and R89), and both gave me good shaves. The second shave of each blade, though... I wasn't able to get a close shave out of them...

    PIF - Starter Kit

    Well, I just realized that my poem does not qualify due to lack of rhyming. Instead of entering with another poem, I will hang my head in shame, learn to follow instructions, and withdraw my entry. Good luck to the winner!
