I’ve recently acquired 2 English made Techs. While one has Gillette embossed on top of the head, it has no other markings. The other has nothing indicating Gillette. In fact it only states Made in England on the base plate, as well as having a letter on the right and a number on the left (on the triangle portion of the underside of the base plate). Also note how that’s backwards from the US which would have the Letter on the left and number on the right.
Does anyone know of a way I can...
I bought a Parker 29L Pink and Lavender for my wife and my daughter.
Both my wife and my daughter think this razor is perfect for their legs, armpits and bikini line.
They like the weight and that it has a good grip.
It's as mild as Feather Popular, but they think it's more efficient, maybe because it's heavier?
I had to test razor too and compare it to my Popular.
I loaded the razor with an Astra SP blade and started shaving.
The first impression is that it is mild, really mild, milder...
Having started my DE shaving adventures about three weeks ago, I got to the point where I was getting consistently clean, irritation free shaves, and felt bold enough to try something new and different.
My original setup consisted of Arko soap, Astra SP blades, and two Baili razors - BD176 3-piece and BD179 TTO. Both are very mild shavers, BD176 especially so, but both are perfectly capable of providing BBS quality shave even for a novice like myself.
So, I decided that I needed a higher...
Proraso Nutriente e Rigenerante (Nourishing & Rejuvenating) is a shaving cream from Proraso's yellow line. It's intended for all beard types and contains both cocoa and shea butters which give it some moisturizing qualities. At present, it is only available as a shaving foam in an aerosol can and it is sold only in the European market. Proraso Nourishing & Rejuvenating is scented with a mild vanilla fragrance.
Just received my Rigarazor from Sergej. It is a classic 9/8 replica of an old Sheffield wedge with dark horn scales and brass bullseye washers. It arrived yesterday packaged in a beautiful display/travel box. Tried it out last night and was very pleased with the thin bevel and keen shaving edge. It feels great in my hand and was very easy to strop. The tungsten steel seems very similar to the fine Sheffield carbon steel of old and understand from others that it will keep a fine edge. The...
Immaculate condition. Display box corners still sharp! Everything in original packaging, including extra razors. Elastic bands still where they sat almost 70 years ago! Not even a fingerprint on this piece, a must- see.
I've had this pen for a couple weeks now, and done a good amount of writing with it. Some journal entries, a letter, general fast notes. Been writing with it using Iroshizuku Syo-ro.
Comes in a really nice storage box with a short standard cartridge and a converter. Good solid feel and weight to it in the hand when closed. The cap is a screw cap, but only takes one full rotation to cap/uncap, so you don't feel like it's taking forever to get the pen open. The bulk of the weight is in the...

God's gift to the wet shaving community.
Astra Superior Platinum is one of the sharpest blade out there yet it's so smooth, it doesn't skip or tug.
Because it's so forgiving and compatible with a wide range of razors, this is probably the best beginner blade out there. Hands down.
Did I also tell you this is also one of the cheapest blades out there if bought in 100 piece carton?
