    Edwin Jagger DE89.....

    I have two Gillette Adjustables....a Fatboy, which was rejuvinated/rechromed here by The Captain, and a Slim Adjustable in its original state. I've had them both since college (MANY years go!), and when I went back to wet shaving 15 years ago, I dug them out of moth balls and have used them...

    I've read threads here regarding Proraso's new formula and how guys don't like it as well. I have noticed that the soap looks different....sort of like Swiss cheese, with hundreds of little holes throughout the product, but I hadn't detected any difference in the smell (Sandalwood version...

    Hats Off to Maggard Razors.

    Hope I'm in the right folder to post this, but here goes..... A couple of days ago I logged into B & B to read about brushes, as I was in the market for a synthetic brush to take along on our upcoming month in Florida. I found a discussion of synthetics, and someone advised another poster...

    Question about the quality of briar pipes.

    As an occasional piper, I have always wondered about this question: Are all briars the same? Is it true that a basket pipe or Dr. Grabow drug store pipe started out as just as good a quality briar as a Saviinelli or a Peterson or a Dunhill for that matter? Also, is it true that the reason...
