    Plastic in badger hair?

    Yank it out with a stout pair of needldnose pliers. If the rest of the knot falls apart, you'll know that it had a definite purpose in keeping it all together.

    Nivea sensitive post shave balm

    I've been using Nivea Post Shave Balm for Sensitive skin for a long time now. I add some 100% hylauoronoc acid and menthol to it & it's great!

    what is the correct order to use alum block/aftershaver/aftershave balm etc after your shave?

    If you require use of an alum block after shaving, you need to re-evaluate your technique, blades, razor or maybe your soap. Nicks, weepers or irritation are not part of a quality shave.

    Bamboo Fly Rod Project

    My Dad's Dad was a High School teacher in Detroit, back when teachers actually knew something, and Detroit Schools were regarded as among the finest in the world.

    Why all the hate for shave foam?

    If your community doesn't recycle and all your cans and plastic go into the landfill, you need to do something about that.

    If you could only own one DE safety razor....

    I'd never consider only one razor, much less only one soap or one brush to use. Talk to any old Soviet & they'll tell you why.

    Watch Battery Replacement

    A friend of mine's mother would sell her car and buy another when the tires needed replacing. Her car dealer was happy to oblige, and even sent out people driving 2-3 different models of new car for her to choose from.

    Vintage spoons to scoop up soap/cream

    Antique Salt Cellars often had a tiny silver salt spoon in them. I found a sterling spoon from the 30's online for cheap. It's small & will level scoop about a pea-sized bit of soap, but can hold more if not level. It works great for ToBS and Cremogena.

    The Hofbrau Haus "shelf"

    I lived in Munich for several years, but because of terrorist activities, didn't visit the Hofbräuhaus for about 2 years. My boss was killed by Baader Meinhof when they blew up his armored limo so I also stayed away from a lot of public places. At the Hofbräuhaus, when you got a table, it was...

    What razor in your collection is your favorite go-to razor?

    My 1918 Old Type with a BiC or Voskhod blade is a favorite, as are A New LC. The Milord and 1947 Super Speed are tied for a smooth and close shave with nearly any blade in my shave lab.
