    Mike's Lime and Noble Otter Barbaar

    New to Straight Razors, need some help with getting close shave

    No problem. It happened to me when I purchased my first straight 6 years ago. I thought to myself if this is straight razor shaving it’s horrible. I did send it off to a well known honer and when I got it back I couldn’t believe the difference. You basically need to experience a truly shave...

    Bob’s Razors

    I just got off the phone with Bob. He is fine and doing very well. His web hosting service mistakenly closed his website. It should be up and running shortly according to Bob and the web hosting service. Whew!
