    Fill in the blank re: single pass razor

    I shave daily. The only razor I believe can come close to a 1 pass is the Asylum RX. I have done it before, and it produced a shave comparable to a Super Speed for me. I could feel stubble under my chin in a few hours.

    Pearl Flexi v2 brass cnc milled adjustable razor is out!

    I'm assuming they went with either thread lock, or a spring clip. I know, I want to know too,but really don't want to go wrenching on it too much, just for curiosity's sake.:ninja:

    Advise with wood shave bowl, it stinks!

    I'm assuming you liked the laquered look rather than the plain mango wood? If you don't want to strip it, you can do as previously suggested, along with a wash or two in Simple Green. It will strip excess oils from the finish.

    Masonic symbols? Help me here?

    I think someone got creative with some fine blasting sand and tape(or polish wand), and a jewelers' airgun. The outer edge of the matte finish does not have any sort of layered border, i.e., you don't see polish broken by matte bars, with some kind of scrolling at the corners, and given the...

    The 'old' rabbit hole

    It is very user-dependent: I prefer heavier razors, if I have a longer handle. I liked the Slim, it just never saw the frequency my FBs do/did. The end of the FB handle rests on my little finger knuckle, and I hold in the collar area with my thumb and index finger. Obviously, those dimensions...

    Razorock Hawk V3 in stainless steel

    I suspect that it will be for you. I had the AlumiHawk, and found it very efficient, quite a good shaver, just rarely reached for. I'd been hoping to try the SS version for awhile. I found a good deal on the 'bay, with both CC and OC. Excellent! I like them very much. Subtly different...

    Are any razor makers working or looking into a premium injector?

    Supply is a decent shaver, I bought one when they first came out. My problem with them was that the blade stops were about 3mm tall, so I was effectively shaving with 2/3 of the width of the blade. I used a diamond plate to take the stops down to 1mm, and shorten & round the guard, and is now...

    Pearl Flexi v2 brass cnc milled adjustable razor is out!

    To your question- plated brass. The Flexi is quite nice, and you get a fun little care-package of goodies with it. :001_smile

    Pearl Flexi v2 brass cnc milled adjustable razor is out!

    I'm just about done with my week with the Flexi. Finished shave quality is essentially the same as the Rex. No surprise, as it is for all intents and purposes its a copy there of. The shave itself (IMO, YMMV, etc.,) is rather different. The Flexi is about 1 full ounce(5 oz) heavier than the...

    Going back from aggressive to mild?

    I dislike mild razors, though their efficiency may (generally) be increased with a different blade, usually Feather. Like Doug135, my Brit Aristocrat, Kirby, '34 Aristocrat, etc., all gained new life via Feather. This is one of the reasons I thoroughly enjoy adjustables, being able to tune...

    1 day, 2 day, and 3 day stubble. Is there a difference?

    I suspect beard density and coarseness will have some impact on this. I would also suspect that if your beard is more coarse/wiry you would be more sensitive to cutting it when its shorter, as it would be closer to the root. I suspect... ;)

    Organizing multiple razors & brushes

    How exactly are we defining, "multiple"...? :c1: I have a small curio cabinet in the bathroom that holds ~15 razors and 6 brushes. The others are in other locations...

    Medical Professionals PIF Now PIFFIER, see post #30.

    Received the set from Adam, and it is gorgeous! Many, many, thanks! I've been off the forum for some time, and his generosity has motivated me. Let me look through the den, and see what I have to share that would be worthy... ;)

    How do you use an adjustable?

    ^^That's typically about what I do. I may vary the setting based on hair growth, or simply because I want a quick & easy shave or something a bit more aggressive.
