The scales on the Greaves are actually wood. I think they could clean up, but I don't really like the way they fit. There is too much space between the tip of the blade and the wedge. . . it looks goofy. Since I don't think they are original (and someone PLEASE correct me if I am wrong!) I think...
I didn't want to start a new thread for this, but where do most of you find washers for pins? I'm having a hard time finding any locally, and I'd rather not mail order those unless it is a last resort.
Welcome to B&B! Let's see if I can answer a question or two for you.
I bought a Vulfix 660 super badger brush from Lee's Razors when I first started wet shaving. I paid about $45-50 shipped (I think), and it is the only brush I have ever owned (3 years or so of wet shaving). I love it. I think...
Welcome to B&B!
Definitely don't worry about the sides of the blade sticking out. Your lather might be a little dry, but if it is working well for you it is worth the extra hassle it takes to rinse it off.
As for when to change blades . . . Feathers last forever for me. Then again, I only...

Before you resort to products, double check your techniques. Anytime I get irritation it is because I rushed or kept pressing for BBS. Make sure you are using NO pressure, only the weight of the razor. That applies to DE's and straights. Definitely check out the Wiki that Vlad...

First, welcome to B&B! I can't say much for that Merkur (don't have one), but you are going to LOVE that brush. That is the first brush I bought when I started wet shaving three years ago, and it is the only one I have ever owned. It is a great little performer.
Anyway, your irritation likely...
Welcome to B&B, Sebastian! Great to have you! Have you looked around the straight razor subforums on here? There are some cool restoration projects posted and a lot of guys talking about honing and what-not.
Oh, I could REALLY go for mohito right now! :w00t:
Randy! Over here!
I'm not buying it. :angry:
Thanks, Matt. :glare:
You know. . . that is a GOOD point!
Gotcha. Thanks, Blake.
I may need you to get the office chick's phone number for me . . . . I mean...you have a...
