    The Journal of a Backwards Professor

    "The downside would be less time spent shaving." with apologies to @Chan Eil Whiskers I actually look forward to shaving as a hobby, my goal with a full ATG 1st pass is not to decrease my time spent shaving. I have some pesky whiskers that lay flat and 2nd and 3rd ATG passes have always...

    What to Expect When You’re Expecting? RazoRock Hawk V2 Edition

    I usually get my orders from IB in around 10 days, but my last order was during their move and it took over 10 days before it even made it to the US side of the border. When I contacted them I was told Canadian Post was to blame.........

    What to Expect When You’re Expecting? RazoRock Hawk V2 Edition

    I got my Fatip Piccolo SE last April, but never tried an ATG 1st pass until recently. I have had trouble with my jawline and neck also, but the ATG 1st pass has helped a lot. I have also started shaving along my jawline and chin from the back of my jaw to my chin with very good results. I use...

    What to Expect When You’re Expecting? RazoRock Hawk V2 Edition

    The Fatip razors are magical, and very capable of one-pass ATG shaves. I have just started shaving ATG on my 1st pass after reading about Steep Angle Shaving with almost irritation free results. (SASA) I also just ordered an ATT SE1 and am looking forward to trying it out!

    AC Razors, do they really sing?

    I think my reasoning is that my favorite SR is a Geneva Full Hollow that sings to me like no other razor I have, and I have only used an AC blade in a Feather Professional AC SS. It gave me my first WOW!!! I want to see if an SE razor can give me a more comfortable and close shave than with my...

    Colonial Razors

    I have been thinking of trying an SE for some time now, and the AC format appeals to me the most at this time. Right now I am leaning toward an ATT SE1, as I can pick up a cap and head for $123 at Maggards, (they are in stock), and I have plenty of handles. They seem to get good reviews as well...

    AC Razors, do they really sing?

    I have been wanting to try a SE razor, and one of the closest shaves I had was with a Feather Professional Artist Club SS. As I already have a box of ProGuards I have been considering an ATT SE1, as they advertise "This razor is easy to master because the shave angle is very intuitive. In...
