    What are some current good (no bleed through) journals/notebooks?

    I just read a very good (as in, comprehensive) comparison between old and new TRP last night: Paper Comparison: NEW 52gsm Tomoe River vs old — Macchiato Man - https://macchiatoman.com/blog/2020/8/20/paper-comparison-new-52gsm-tomoe-river-vs-old

    Groomatorium castile soap--it's like Dr. Bronner meets Chuck Norris

    I can only imagine the shrinkage that will happen when you wash your bits with that, then. I know that the good doctor’s peppermint Castile soap is quite refreshing in the heat of summer... Which reminds me that I’ll almost certainly want to start buying it again when we move to Atlanta later...

    Worth my while to get a strop to paste?

    I am wondering if it's worth my while to buy an inexpensive strop with the specific intent to paste it and use in between honings and when a plain leather strop is no longer enough. Would someone please comment and let me know?

    Anyone happen to know what shipping from EU to USA is running?

    I just ordered a BBW from Ardennes Coticule. Does anyone know how long things are taking to get delivered from EU to USA addresses currently? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Fountain pens and ink aplenty!!!

    If soaking the nib and assembly in water (perhaps overnight) doesn't work, get some "pen flush" from somewhere. Amazon has some by Monteverde, but you can also get some from one of the pen suppliers like Goulet Pens or JetPens.

    Wife doesn’t like 1 of the new scents

    The one scent that my wife always comments positively on, no ifs, ands, or buts, is 4711. While she doesn't mind my Alt-Innsbruck and Ogalalla Bay Rum Limes & Peppercorns, and tolerates my Veg, she's pretty much informed me that the rest of the Pinaud stuff is invited to never darken our...

    Best soft badger brushes under $50, $50-$75, and $75-$100, and which brushes punch harder than their price tag?

    My birthday is coming up too. But, since you're asking about a smaller diameter brush, send me your address and don't ask questions. ;)

    They Don’t Understand

    From the Notebooks of Lazarus Long.... Somewhere, I have a copy of this book. It's so pretty, and the witticisms are fantastic!

    What are you unpacking/ opening today, show pics or video, we love pics

    Alright, friends! This week was a big haul on both the shaving front and the pen front: That's the Lucky Tiger ointment. Ingredients listed are virtually the same as my doctor recommended for the hellacious dandruff and dermatitis that I'm having all over my head, including my eyebrows, my...

    Fountain pens and ink aplenty!!!

    Both, probably... Side note: Unless I'm wrong, this nib above is called a "music" nib. If you look carefully, you can see two slits. IIRC, this allows for better ink flow when a composer is/was creating a score at a piano-forte and writing the notes on a sheet of music that was more or less...

    The Nib Acquisitions for 2021.

    The Parker fountain pen is a nice daily driver. I had my first one (which someone walked off with, along with several others over the early years) more than 20 years ago, so they've been around for a while. As for me, I accidentally tripped and fell into several orders over the past couple of...

    What she doesn’t know won’t hurt me, right?

    I'll admit, that makes me jealous, that you have a washitsu. I'm hoping that when we end up moving this year, that I will have some spot to at least set up a bit of a butsudan. Small apartments in the US are a challenge to adapt.

    Ooo, pretty! I just gor my tracking number, so it's on the way! As a side note, what's that background in your photo? Is it a tatami mat?

    What she doesn’t know won’t hurt me, right?

    Thank you! I'm looking forward to it shipping and even more-so to it's arrival. As a side note, the missus was at the local general boutique and was considering buying me something shaving-related as a treat. When I told her what I had ordered, she told me this, and said that she had seen...
