    My Blade Search Journal

    I’ve got 100 each of the RPL and Voskhod. RPL a little smoother, Voskhod a little sharper. I got two tucks of the RSS, but I don’t get along well with them. I’ll try them again in Slantember and OCtober when I’m using a lot of different razors, see if they do better outside my main rotation. I...

    Don’t force your shaves! (Time constraints)

    I hear you loud and clear. Shaved with my Henkotsu kamisori two nights ago, too late, too sleepy to be taking that sharp pointed devil on. I‘m still sporting a long scratch on the right lower neck. No blood at least.

    B&B's I Cycle, You Cycle, Let's Exchange Stories (aka B.I.C.Y.C.L.E.S.)

    Slightly different Columbia River ride today. 35 miles of sunshine and a steady north wind. At the boat ramp/west end path access. There were lots of riders and other folks on the path today. This parking lot was nearly full.

    Show Us Your BICYCLE(S)!!!!

    So I visited our river today. 35 miler, took just about all I had in the tank. Kelley Point at the confluence of the Willamette and the Columbia Rivers. Looking up the Columbia. Solid north wind. The sailors could zip along the Columbia on a broad reach in either direction. It is usually...

    What does “Like” mean to you?

    I’m trying to Like :thumbup: every post in this thread(except my own). As @shave/brush pointed out, it is just about the least I can do.

    Best "non-shaving" items / finds for shaving?

    My ‘scuttle’. That’s a Vollrath 4 oz prep bowl on top and a pewter trinket ‘Jefferson Cup’ from Monticello on the bottom. (And a high quality rubber band off a bunch of asparagus.) I mainly face lather, but it keeps my brush warm between passes and makes/holds a little lather when needed.

    Dovo Poll

    I like those Sunday Shaver scales (and the toe pin), but heftier and shorter make more sense to me. I use a Dovo Barbarossa detail razor sometimes when I really want SHORT. I might own fewer modern 5/8 razors if I had been able to predict my practical preferences when I started with SRs.

    What straight did you use today? Now with PICTURES

    ‘Saturday’ 5/8+ out of a Wacker seven day set. I’m thinking 7 is too many of the same razor, even one as excellent as this Wacker. Love the horn scales.

    Classification of Old Spice

    Sniff some Williams Mug for ‘barbershop’. Or sniff some Barbasol Brisk AS for my specific barbershop.

    What does “Like” mean to you?

    For me it might be: ”I want you to know I saw your post” (on a quiet thread, or among forum buddies) ”Thanks for posting the photo” (I truly like photos) ”I agree” (takes less space and time than ‘+1’) ”I respectfully disagree, but thanks for expressing your incorrect view clearly or...

    What Aftershave did you use today?

    Pinaud Clubman. Wasn’t impressed day 1. The more I use it the better I like it.
