    The Terrorists Have Won!

    It's been 18 years since 9/11. An entire generation has grown up in a post 9/11 world and know no different. I'd make the argument that how we live now IS the norm.

    Boycott a Product ?

    Quite frankly I couldn't tell you what any of the political views are of the companies I buy from so I'm not sure I'd boycott them just because of them. It's a free country where people are allowed to have differing opinions. As soon as I start boycotting things because of differing opinions...

    Navy shaving changes

    Current Air Force member here. Durring basic, all members with extreme cases of ingrown hairs utilized an electric razor at the medical facility (once a week I believe). They also had a waiver they carried around to show that they were not required to shave every day. Shaving waivers are a...

The Krona's that I have been using just don't seem to work...

    Yeah, I think I accidentally added a decade lol The handle is from my Kampfe, this one didn’t come with a handle so I have to mix and match when I use it.

If I wasn't required to shave I might...

LC Blade: Gem PTFE Brush: Simpson KH2 Pure Pre: GD Unscented + Cooling Soap: MdC Fougere Post: Alum, Thayer's, Clubman SR, Stirling Glacial Wasn't a very gentle shave today. I think the combination of a newer PTFE blade and the aggressive Kampfe caused some...

    Micromatic Monday

    I've had a couple of rough shaves with my MMOC and it kind of scared me away for a bit. I switched up my blade (from a PTFE to a Carbon) and fixed my technique and now might go back to it more often. It also helped that I've been using a Kampfe LC, and those things are very aggressive and can be...
