    "Micro Touch One" DE Seen At Local Megamart

    My wife and I were shopping at the local "Wally World" this evening when we came across this: I "took one for the team" and bought one to see if it is the same razor that is available online/mailorder (see THIS thread). My initial impression is yes, it appears to be the same: the razor is...

    Caswell Massey Turns From The Dark Side?

    While major shaving names like DR Harris, Art of Shaving and Trumper’s appear to have recently reformulated some of their shaving creams and soaps into what some say may be inferior products (compared to what they were), Caswell Massey’s recent reformulation and launch of their new...

    Have You Shaved Someone Else?

    Hello gents-- I'm starting to work on a video about how to shave someone else. Not like a barber mind you, this would be more like shaving someone who couldn't shave themself due to age or disability. I want to make it a pleasant experience but probably not a BBS shave kind of thing (though...

    Pre-Stage Fright?

    Gents-- As you may know I will be speaking about shaving at events in Chicago (along with Lynn Abrams from SRP and Geo from Shavenation) and Milwaukee next week.

    Help ID This Razor?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p34IdliA5P0 Based on some comments I've already gotten could this be a Sabi razor? If so, I'm amazed it would be sold under a Gillette name (even in a 3rd world country).
