    Big Shave Southwest Review:

    The EJ 3ONE6 will be selling for $116 or somewhere in that neighborhood, which is about in the middle of the price range for stainless steel razors. The event was a lot of fun and was my 4th Big Shave event.

    Advice on Yaki Barberpole Wanted

    I have the barber pole with the 2 band badger knot. I like it a lot. It's a great value, has soft tips (not scritchy at all) and good backbone for a badger.
