    Brown Leafer Facial Hair Survey

    I don't remember the last time I shaved, but I've been thinking of doing it again for the summer. It's still summer, right?

    True Story: Asked to leave Cigar Lounge. :-(

    One of the lounges I go to recently started enforcing the "no outside cigars" rule in their lounge. They posted signage to that effect so I don't have too big a problem with it. Another lounge I go to has no problem with outside cigars, but that seems to be a rarity these days from what I hear...

    What is it with these tobacco sellers?

    Sorry to hear of your frustration, the part about the Arturo Fuente robbery is true, but a lame excuse. Halfwheel has an article about the 40' shipping container of hundreds of thousands of AF cigars that was stolen in early April.

    I just finished a Cuban cigar

    Floor sweepings, consisting of short filler scrap tobacco, paper, hair, what-have-you. Same sort of thing happens in the coffee industry, except that it's sold to make instant coffee.

    What Is Your Favorite Pastime to Do While Enjoying a Pipe?

    Straight Razor & Beards?

    I found that when I had a full beard that a straight razor was a great way to edge up the beard and get good clean straight lines. My straight is a Whipped Dog Sight Unseen and I love it.

    A primer on new Parker razors, please

    I picked up a Parker 98R three piece Ultra Heavy Weight Long Handle Double Edge Safety Razor just for the handle to use with my Muhle 2011 R41 head since I wanted a larger, heavier handle for that head. I have a couple of Merkur razors with similar looking handles so I liked the style and the...

    Old Spice deodorant chemical burns!

    Well, I was buying Old Spice deodorant, shampoo, and styling gel at Big Lots for cheap, but they've disappeared from their shelves and I guess I'm just not willing to pay full price. Good ride while it lasted, didn't notice any irritation and was hoping to get some more at a good price. There...
