    Help me with my RA

    @Doc226 - I think you're right about honing a frown into it. I thought I noticed that myself, but wasnt sure. But if you are seeing it as well, that's got to be what it is. I don't have full size hones, they are about 4 inches by 1.5 inches, so i'm having to do x's, so I think the middle is...

    Help me with my RA

    Hello fello bladers, I've got a big problem. I have a lovely African Wood Ralf Aust, and the bevel is off. I tried to bevel it without tap on the spine, and that seemed to be making it worse or not helping at all. So I put some tape on it and it seems to be a little better but that created...

    WTB rough SRs

    Hey guys, I've recently purchased a JNAT (Nakayama Kiita Iromano Koppa) and want to learn its secrets, along with learn to hone on a set of nortons that I have. Does anyone have some SRs that need restoration work or new bevel set on them that they are willing to part with? Not looking to...

    Where to buy JNATs?

    Hello all knowing B&B members. I've gotten into honing recently, and have a set of Norton whets. I'm covered up to 8k. But am wanting to really put something special on the back end for finishing. Something that I can get lost in, and JNATs seem to have just that allure for me. I wasn't...

    jmcdaniel0 - You the man! thanks so much for getting me started. PM sent. Let me know if there is anything I can help you with in return. Bk124tt - Thanks! I've come across that site, and for the most part I like what I see. But I've never glanced at the "deal of the day". I'll make sure to...

    Cigar beginner

    Cigar beginner here, I've got zero experience under my belt, and I dare not open the can of worms here by asking for tips or suggestions. BUT, I would like to ask.... How in the world do you guys keep up with brands and whether they are crap? There are so many and with that being said, how am...

    Any beardsman?

    Hello all, I've been a member on B&B for a little while now, and out of all the great side topics discussed here, I've yet to come across any beard related activity. Is there none? Granted this is a shaving type forum site, there are other off topic areas discussed, which is why I am posting...

    No mention November?

    if you look back at your 2 week picture, it's definitely different. That will be a glorious man mane if you let it ride. I'm still working on mine, im happy with it, but wish it were more like yours Catalinbread

    No mention November?

    The day is coming brothers of the beard! I've never grown mine, so I'm taking this opportunity to take the 6 month journey to see what it can look like. But I know there are many of you that are much more loyal to the blade, than I. So...has anyone gone so far as to pick out their first shave...

    NICE! Think you'll keep it after November/December? How long do you think you'll keep it, if so?

    No mention November?

    Quink - oh man, I know the struggle, lol. I too am fighting shaving. I use SRs and i enjoy them so much. If you go a little further back in the post, I posted a couple pictures of a W&B that I had restored and it came back a couple weeks ago, or so. Right when all of this started, so now I have...

    Quink - the way that is growing, you could really have a mane. You should rock it, at least until it warms up again.

    No mention November?

    Catalinbread - whoa man, that's a hell of a grow in 2 weeks. I know nothing beats shaving, but if you've never actually tried growing that out, like 3 months or so, you would have a sinister level beard. If you took some basic multivitamins and used daily beard oil, you could have glorious soft...
