    Few questions about Domenico Caraceni 1913 discontinued cream

    I have an old tub of DC1913. I’ll have to try the XPEC to see if it is anywhere close to the DC.

    Half price hart

    Thanks for the info! It is always nice to hear first hand experiences vs non first hand experiences, and how sometimes they differ.

    Vintage Chinese Straights?

    Now I am curious, are there any reputable Chinese razors in production? I know Korea/Russia has some, but have never heard about any from China itself.

    First time using a 7/8 Blade

    I love 7/8 blades. Most of my Palmeras are advertised as 7/8, although some call them 15/16...Splitting hairs, I guess. Dorkos are great shavers, too. So, a 7/8 Dorko? That makes a nice morning.

    Smiling Edge Razor

    Size of straight razor.

    I started off with a 5/8 and if I had to do everything over, I would go that route again. I always thought that under the nose was tricky with a large razor. Of course, now that I have a beard and only trim my cheeks and neck, I don't have that problem any more, so now bigger is better...

    How do you store your SRs?

    That box looks great. Aframestoyko has random ones which look nice, but those with the window look great. Anyone have one? Is that a glass or plastic window? I imagine glass, but just confirming. Sure beats scattering razors throughout the house which are hiding on top of cabinets and top...

    WTS: RW Purist, CS FIlarmonica, Dorko 300

    Hello, I'm selling some straight razors off that are out of rotation: 1) Robert Williams Purist - Too short for me, I like longer blades. The bevel on this is uneven, I've tried to capture it in pics. It came to me this way and hasn't affected shaving performance. It basically has a microbevel...

    Show us your Japanese naturals

    The only info I have on this one is that it was sold as a "Takao Natural Whetstone", it was sold as a prefinisher, but it is very hard and it looks pretty.
