    Barber end strops: Yea or Nay?

    I'd say it really doesn't matter how the ends are made, as long as it's a good quality, supple piece of leather. I also think a good Kanoyama can't be beaten that easily... For your second strop, you could do helluva lot worse. Go for it! Sent from my CLT-L29 using Tapatalk

    How do you form your shaving biases?

    Also, on the choices... There are a few things I like but have not chosen so far. One is a shavette, for example - a Feather or a Kai. I really like them, but have never tried one. I can't explain it! I have about 150-200 straights in my collection, so getting one more is not going to make any...

    How do you form your shaving biases?

    I suspected this may be the case. You have to try the real thing. You will never find it in a cheap soap though. I was the same as you in the beginning - in hindsight, I had no idea what sandalwood actually smells like. I was convinced I didn't like it, because the only thing I smelled was the...

    What are you unpacking/ opening today, show pics or video, we love pics

    They will get some very special badger knots, as usual. I don't do much else these days - Although questions like this remind me of the horse bristle that's been sitting in the drawer for months [emoji4] Thanks! Thank you! Sent from my CLT-L29 using Tapatalk

    The King 1K is only slower and softer than the Naniwa Professional 1K. Those two stones are otherwise close enough in grit that you can simply re-purpose one and move to the other. Can you "do the damage that cannot be undone"? Sure you can! I have seen it done on a few GDs recently, where...

    Thats it!

    There are a few problems with this statement. First, no stone should dish fast with a straight razor, no matter how soft. Secondly, definitely no stone should need several lappings in the bevel setting stage. If this is truly the case, then you are either using the wrong stone i.e. working with...

    Got some rosewood burl handles made for me. Super stoked about these, I can't wait to get to knotting them Sent from my CLT-L29 using Tapatalk

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/283708199960 If you really want one, that is the one to get. I'd actually recommend a 10x rather than this, as the viewing field is larger. The next step up in image quality beyond this magnifier is a microscope. Sent from my CLT-L29 using Tapatalk

    @hcoop111 Hey there! A friend of mine sent me here.. What razor are you having troubles with? Any pictures? I'm in ACT, if you need some help I'd be happy to look at it. Sent from my CLT-L29 using Tapatalk

    Jnats on ebay

    You have to either invest time, or invest $$$. I chose to invest time in researching and $$$ in trying as many stones as possible. Result: Time spent and dollars spent, many stones on the shelves, mostly all good for something, but definitely not all good for razors, which is totally fine...

    X-Strokes, Circles, Half Strokes???

    Do circles, but at least try to clean up with X-strokes. I understand what you mean about it being hard on the shoulder, so if you can't, then don't bother - it's not critical. You should also try the back-forward strokes (some call this Japanese strokes). It all works fine, just watch the...

    Creed Virgin Island Water

    VIW is a fresh lime with a strong, sweet coconut base and a subtle vanilla/rum throughout. Pretty awesome blend, works really well for both men and women. I'm not a huge fan of the dry down, but opening and heart are well worth it. I wouldn't be without it, although it's my wife who uses it most...

    I'm afraid I cannot say anything good about this soap, so I better not say anything [emoji23] Sent from my CLT-L29 using Tapatalk
