    My New Pocket Pen

    For most of my life I have carried either a ballpoint or a rollerball pen. The Parker Jotter is one of my favorites, but when rollerballs became a thing I wound up with a Cross Townsend. After losing several Townsends over the years I put a Cross Century II ballpoint in my pocket and carried...

    The 2020 Gillette Heritage II Edition

    It has the same nice case and blades. There is still no logo on the top cap, surprisingly! There is a small Gillette logo on the base plate, which is nice. This is a solid bar razor similar to the Tech. Upgrade kits for existing Heritage owners are available at your nearest antique...

    Bending warped Bakelite

    I managed to actually find a case for my Schick type F, but like so many of them it is a bit warped. It works fine to display the razor, but the case lid is bowed in to the point that it won't close over the razor. Could this be heated with a hair dryer and gently pushed back? Has anyone...

    Schick Adjustable

    I just received my new Schick Adjustable and I am confused as to whether it is an M2 or a M3 version. My searches seem to turn up conflicting information. I think it is an M3, but can anyone verify that? This type seems to an in between type.

    Gillette Rubie Platinum Plus

    I have done some research and some say these are junk blades and others rate them fine. I have just finished my third shave with one and this blade seems as good as the Polsilver. I am considering buying a hundred of these blades. Anyone have recent experience with these blades to share...
