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?
Amber Shave Soap delivers just the slightest whiff of a refreshing resin, the hint of a cool forest and the promise of unexplored depths. It's the strong silent type, in short.
I finished shaving half an hour ago, and my face is still cold. That should give you a clear indication of how effective Tangerine Creeper really is. I will be thoroughly enjoying the face-freezing while this stuff lasts because this latest edition from The Holy Black is supposed to be the last of the Creepers, according to a YouTube video featuring the two brothers running the show. Then again, they never intended to do a second release of Lavender Creeper either and look what happened, so...
Having read and watched a lot of good on these, I decided to place an order. Unfortunately I could not decide on which size to go with, so I thought to hell with it, I'll order them both.
Unfortunately there is nowhere in the UK that sells these, so I had to place an order off of Captains Choice website. Despite the bank holidays over here in the UK, I received these in 12 days from the US. Scott Brennecke (owner of Captains Choice) threw in three free samples with my order to (shave cream...
