    1st time re-knotting a brush w/22mm SHD bulb

    I picked up the Maggard Bronze handle synthetic last year because I loved the look of the handle. The handle is/was great, but I was not a huge fan of the knot. So I figured I’d try re-knotting the handle. I started by cutting the bristles as low as I could. I made a heck of a mess in the...

    Microwave mistake...

    So I read somewhere that if you sent a soap for a 4-8 second ride in the microwave that it could “zap” the EO/FO in the soap that might cause slight irritation. Well I was experiencing some of this slight irritation from a soap, but the performance and lather was too good to throw it out, so I...

    FT Gillette Tech 1962 USA H2 Ball end handle, for Fat Handle Tech

    I’d like to trade my ball end tech for a fat handle tech. I purchased this in July off eBay and have used it less than 6 times. The razor is in great condition, with one small mark on top cap (see last 3 pictures). Let me know if you have a fat handle in similar condition that you’d like to trade.

    Thinking about a RazoRock Gamechanger .68P SB Super Knurl for my next razor

    My current go to is a DE89 head on a WCS Handle, I don’t like the length of the EJ lined handle.
