I just received a Kikuboshi 1302 Straight Razor.
There's not much information on the internet and all I know is the knife is from Japan and are made after 1941.
Anyone here knows anything about this razor?
I only have one SE razor, an old Hydra-Magic.
I have been thinking of getting a Parker SE, but now I saw this one:
It certainly looks...
This morning I thought it might be a good idea to try a Derby Extra blade.
I have not used Derby Extra in a few years and I remember that they were anything but sharp.
I whipped a nice lather with Palmolive Sensitive Cream,
I loaded my Gillette Flair Tip with a Derby Extra and started...
A friend of mine gave me this razor.
A Ning Feng single edge.
It was hard to take good pics on how to load it, but as you can see it takes two DE blades.
I have not tried it yet, but I am quite curious on how it will perform.
It's not what I would call a robust or sturdy razor and the weight is...
One of the younger guys at my gym asked me a lot of questions on DE razors and now he want to try one.
I sent him links to various venders with tips on mild and smooth razors for him to start with.
I have offered him to borrow some of my razors just to try before he buy.
So tonight I will bring...
When I was quite new to Shavette shaving I ordered a 100 pack of Derby green SE blades, I wanted to start with a nice and mild blade ;)
Problem is, it's hard to get a really close shave with the Derby's, I find it to be a bit too mild.
The advantage with the Derby SE blade is that it is...
About ten years ago I tried a small sampler of Burberry London, I liked the smell but when I tried it it was summer and the smell just didn't fit in
Last week I ordered a bottle and now when the Christmas is coming the smell is just fantastic.
This scent is 100% Christmas! 🎄🎅
And (IMO) it's one...
I just received my first single edge razor, a 1950's Eversharp Injector.
I also received a 5-pack of Diplomat Super Stainless Injector Blades in its original box.
Now I need some help to find out where to buy injector blades for my new razor.
There are a lot of injector blades from...
A year ago, or so, I bought a bottle of Derby Woda Kolonska and I'm quite happy with the scent.
Problem is, the wife hates it...
Anyway, for you who don't know about this Polish Cologne, here's a video review of Derby and two other Polish classics, enjoy:
Lately I have been shaving with Lord Super Chrome blades in different razors.
I must say it's an extremely good blade, for me 😉
Today I used a new Super Chrome in my Fatip Grande OC and had the shave of the year.
For those of you who have never tried a Lord Super Chrome, try one!!!
Good evening all!
I know most of us love the different types of Gillette Super Speeds, and other vintage Gillette razors.
On eBay, and Swedish eBay (Tradera), you can find lots of Flare Tip Super Speeds but not so many Blue Tip's and Red Tip's.
Did Gillette not make as many of them...
As you know I bought five razors for 5 Euros and one of them was a Schick Krona, or was it?
According to this thread my "Krona" might be an ordinary Schick DE: The when is it a Schick Krona and when is it not DE timeline -...
I went to a local fleamarket today and found a small plastic bag with razors and a couple of brushes.
I paid €5 for the bag.
The razors are Schick Krona, Gillette Flare tip, Gillette Blue tip, Gillette Tech and a 1940 (?) Gillette bakelite Tech.
Not bad, €1 per razor.
Now I have some...
I found an open tuck of Lord Platinum blades in my bathroom cabinet this morning.
I know that this tuck must have been there for at least a year, maybe even a year and a half, hidden behind all other stuff in the cabinet.
Usually I have between 30-40 blades in the bathroom and bring some new...
I have a few vintage straight razors from Heljestrand, Jernbolaget and Giant (Sheffield).
They are all carbon steel and they are easy to strop before the shave, but I don't use my straights so often.
I also have two shavettes, a Dovo Stainless and a Parker SRX, wich I use more often...
Earlier this week I received my Russian Meridian razor, and it looks like a Schick Krona copy.
I started to clean it up and I will disinfect it later tonight.
If everything goes well I will shave with it tonight or tomorrow 😊
Good evening ladies and gentlemen!
I was browsing through old posts from 2015-2016 and read that Bluebirds from Derby was discontinued?
Now I see on RBC's website they have Bluebirds, have they started making the same blades again, or is it new blades from a new factory?
I have an old English Ball End Tech in aluminum, weighing ca 30 grams, with a 71 millimeter long handle, and when I'm looking at mr-razor's site I guess it's from 1950.
Now I bought another English Ball End Tech, but this one is heavier and the handle is 75 millimeter long.
I have no...
