    A bit of harberinging

    Recently, I sold 285 of my 315 straight razors to a buyer in Europe. He was in NY for business and came over to check them out. Most were NOS and I had no intention of ever using them. I wasn't interested in taking photos of each razor to list for sale. He said that he's going to resell a...

    KAI Captain Titan Mild Availability

    This is just a notice that the lady who supplies me with KAI Mild blades is in the process of selling her business to a big chain. If that happens, I will no longer be able to offer them for a good price to forum members.

    Multi-Purpose Boots Under $200?

    I need a pair of boots for when I'm doing yard work and when I'm shoveling snow. $200 is my max. I'd rather not spend a lot on something that I will wear sparingly. What brands should I look at? Thanks.

    I've never used a Sheffield razor. I've never had much interest in them because my other razors are more than sufficient. Nonetheless, if I were to try just one, which would you recommend? Thanks.

    Kamisori Threesome

    They look better in person. I should've polished them but I couldn't wait to take photos. They're a mix of old wrought iron, Swedish steel, and Japanese White steel; they have an ergonomic handle and a wedge grind. Each razor takes a month to make from scratch. :thumbup:

    Amy Winehouse Dead at 27

    Terrible news. I've been a fan of hers since before she was known outside the UK. She had it together back then. Once she got big though, she became a wreck. It's a terrible loss for someone who was truly gifted. My condolences go out to her family, friends, and fellow fans...

    Dry Heat: 925,520

    Humidity: 0. If you've scoffed at the concept of dry heat, you might be rethinking it after this summer. This has been the most uncomfortable NY summer that I can remember. I've never experienced humidity like this in the US. Go outside at your own peril.

    Group Buy: Feather SS / KAI Captain Mild

    PayPal Payments and the IRS

    Now that PayPal reports everything to the IRS, does that mean we should be collecting tax on shipments within our respective state? Will the IRS expect us to pay taxes on these payments? I'm concerned that I'll owe back taxes on sales. I've seen eBay sellers adding tax to their sales now.

    Does anyone not like the Coticule?

    It seems everyone is using a Coticule. I don't remember this many threads on it a year or two ago. Does anyone not like the Coticule?

    Fine Sandpaper for Lapping

    I want to make my 8K and 15K stones especially fine by lapping them with fine sandpaper. The finest grit that I've found is 3000 grit. Is that fine enough? There's a retailer that sells polishing paper in 4000 grit, 6000 grit, and 8000 grit but I don't know how it compares to sandpaper. Has...

    Buffing a Blade with a Gold Wash

    This Robuso blade needs to be buffed but I don't want to lose the gold wash. I believe buffing goes from spine to edge. How do I clean the blade without sacrificing the gold wash?
