    Above the Tie SE Slant

    If it doesn't actually torque the blade, but rather just cants it, I have no interest whatsoever. I spent years refining my 'slide' technique with all my razors. This technique allows me to use a slicing motion no matter what razor I am using. So-called slants that only put the blade at an angle...

    Grape Scented Shave Soap???

    Why in the world would anybody want to have a shave soap that smelled like grapes? I mean, most "grape-scented" stuff actually smells like grape candy and not at all like real grapes, anyway. And it's not a good scent for a shave soap. It just isn't. Back in the day I got excited to try a...

    Shave Roulette

    This is awesome. I took about a three-shave break from Roulette and chose my own stuff...I have an old container of vintage Williams that is almost gone and I want to shave through it and get the container out of my way. Maybe I'll let the spin determine my razors and brush, though.
