    The Daily Double

    Had to go back and re-rinse the Wunderbar after looking at the photo. Ach. Brito Mogno is a bit clingy, but worth it!

    What shave stick did you use today?

    Royal Lime looks great! I did just order 4 pucks of Col Conk Lime to be floated my way down that big South American river. Careful melt in the microwave, menthol crystals instantly dissolved - bliss in a pre-shave stick. I would use it for full shaves, but as a pre-shave I get to use it nearly...

    What straight did you use today? Now with PICTURES

    Dovo Carre - still just diamond/balsa progression to finish factory edge. HHT and I agree it is wicked sharp. Time to back off to just 200k/0.1u maintenance stropping. Tony Miller 3" linen/roughout hoursehide strop - 20/30 RazoRock Wunderbar - Rapira PL (7), Ti handle. Used to subdue the right...

    Farmer Tan's Foray Into SR Shaving

    I read (and saw the photos) of the job @Herrenberg did on that razor. Impressive! If you stick with this SR thing and want to make a 200k/.1u balsa strop (or a whole 50/100/200k progression), I can send you some diamond paste(s). I use 2x3x12" pieces of balsa and avoid the whole 'glue to a...

    $100 to spend, which DE to get

    Yep, Karve. C or D I would think based on your R5/6 preference. If I shaved with my Karve everyday the OC C plate would do it. I tend to pick the OC D plate and grab the Karve when I have a couple days or more of stubble. I also like my Lupo DC, which for me has a nice differential between the...

    What shave stick did you use today?

    I think Col Conk Lime is pretty popular here in the US. I want another puck to make my next stick, but every time I check an online seller (to include a puck with an order) it is out of stock. I may have to abandon the shaving specialists and get it from Amazon.

    Lather - post up your favorite brush with a head of lather

    Vintage knot dubl duck boar brush (170mm overall, 62mm loft), RazoRock lime puck, Captain's Choice copper bowl. The brush can really slap some lather around!

    The Daily Double

    Double with my new-to-me beat up/giant dubl duck boar brush, servicing a Fromm redHead and a Made in England 1912 Ever-Ready with RazoRock lime lather: The Fromm is hyper sharp. Of course, a Gem PTFE practically defines hyper sharp. The brush is 170mm long (5 1/2"), with 62mm of loft. Finally a...

    Micromatic Monday

    I'm guilty of downgrading the flat top brethren: G-bar, Featherweights, and Contours. The truth is gradually creeping up on me - the more I use them, the better I learn them, and the more I appreciate them.

    Barbasol Lovers Thread

    Barbasol Sensitive from the tube, transferred to a film canister. If I filled the canister, I could get a couple weeks of travel shaves. When I take minimal kit on the road, it looks like this: Schick E, usually a Personna blade, and a RazoRock leather razor case holds everything, even an...
