    Favorite Shave Stick??

    Tabac. Really want to try Speick stick though since I love the cream so much, but despite having lived in Germany for two years, I've never seen the stick in the wild.

    Balea Sensitive Shaving Cream Review

    Glad it worked out alright for you! I never did get it to where I liked it on my face, but I do use it every week to shave the back of my neck (both to use it up, and because I think I have no nerve endings in my neck, so it doens't matter what I use because I never feel the difference there...

    Arko drying out skin???

    Arko dries my skin, but that's never much of an issue as I always slather on some Nivea cream all over my face after my aftershave splash regardless of what soap I use.

    Interesting soap...

    Surely I can't be the only one that was hoping that the scent "Fidel" would smell like tobacco..

    Pick only one soap: what would it be and why?

    No worries, I figured that you knew that, but thought I might as well through that out there just in case!

    Yaqi Razors review

    Glad to hear it works for you! As I've heard, it's definitely not for everyone.

    Pick only one soap: what would it be and why?

    While Tabac is my favorite soap, I hope you're not expecting an unscented soap when you buy it, because it most certainly is NOT unscented (in the best possible way though).

    WSJ article about DE shaving

    I wouldn't say "cut", but I would end up with a ton of weepers in my submandibular triangle, which is why I switched from electric to disposables, which helped a lot.

    Yaqi Razors review

    I do know Yaqi does contract out as a OEM for other companies, but you'd have to ask them whether or not they do so for Parker, I don't work for them so I don't know. Huh, I was under the impression that the heads were more or less interchangeable on different handles. I haven't tried to put...

    WSJ article about DE shaving

    Interesting to see how much blood is mentioned in it. I get the occasional weeper, but I never got an actual cut on my face with a DE (though have have gotten my back a few times, but considering that I can't see what I'm doing back there and can barely reach for that matter, it's not that...

    Yaqi Razors review

    Oof, I'm certainly not an absolute authority on these things. The first one, in my opinion, is slightly more aggressive than the EJ 89 or Merkur 33/34C, but not by a ton. And your skin could be totally different than mine, and could perceive it completely differently, so take that with a grain...

    Your Most Efficient Razor?

    My Yuma, especially the way I use it. I don't tighten it down very much, so the blade is much less clamped/bent and the blade gap is much wider. Basically it's just pure blade. The reason I do this is because basically I just use this razor for shaving the back of my neck and back, which I do...
