    1957 Gillette Süper Speed Blue Tip

    Me too Twelvefret, although I was 13 when my dad gave me a worn out electric Philishave with 2 heads and said, "here you better start using this". I think I had it less than 2 months before the motor was burnt out. Dale

    Identify - Gillette or non-Gillette?

    My son was given this razor by his girlfriend and the only mark is a stamped 66 on the inside of the top plate. Does anyone have an idea of maker and what era? Dale

    D-I-Y Shaving Brush Travel Tube

    So here's the dilemma, I'm going to Cuba in May with my bride and although I have a goatee I still want to shave my head and the rest of my face. I've been looking on line for an inexpensive travel tube but the shops either don't ship to Canada or the bloody thing costs an arm and a leg. Just...

    PIF - Tattooed Gillette. (Sorry hard core collectors, I couldn't help myself.)

    Newbomb, To answer your DE question, I picked up a ladies Gillette in blue, her birth year. She is afraid to use it unless I show her how to. Let's just say I'm squeemish with the DE around the "naughty" bits. We'll get there though, once we are living under the same roof. Dale

    PIF - Tattooed Gillette. (Sorry hard core collectors, I couldn't help myself.)

    Does any not use any beard care products?

    I love Bluebeard's Beard Rinse. I'm sure there are other products out there but, I've found what works and will probably stick with it. Bluebeard's has reduced the dandruff and itch to almost non-existent. I only wash my beard a couple times a week in the winter to reduce drying out and just...

    Shame on you

    Okay, so is no one addressing the SJW virtue signalling ad? Or maybe discussing things as such are taboo and against the rules here on B&B? Dale

    Change in seasons and change in beard length

    I started shaving my head about 15 years ago, if I remember correctly. It was more to avoid the "old man" ring of hair. I have considered growing it back but my girlfriend prefers my head shaved and to tell you the truth, it actually feels odd when I go even a week without shaving my head. Oh...

    Newbie: beard care, a little frustrated

    I use Bluebeard Beard Rinse with the "citrus" aroma. I like it and it keeps the facial dandruff in check. For some reason it also curtails the itchiness when growing my new beard at the beginning of the fall/winter season.
