    Cheap Watches

    I have a few investment watches in my collection. I also have a lot of low-to-mid tier watches as well. They get just as much or more time than my pricier watches. All watches are meant to be wore, and I wear them all. If an affordable "cheap" watch speaks to you, wear it and own it.

    Recommendation Needed: <40mm Diver, GREAT lume

    I think that I can use my Seiko Save The Ocean Samurai lume as a tanning bed, it is so bright. I have a wide variety of watches, and this one gets a lot of wrist time.

    Have To Find A New Go To Blade. Need Some Recomendations

    I used to hunt for my Goto blade. Along the way I collected many hundreds of a wide variety of blades. For me, there is no such thing as a Goto blade. Just one blade that I tend to use more than the others at any given time. Even if I lock in on Feathers with my EJ 89L for a few years, I...

    Edwin Jagger DE89 still the best!

    I might spend a few weeks on other razors, but I always end up back at my EJ DE89 for the majority of the time.

    Feather a no go?

    I tried my first Feather a few months after I started shaving with a DE. It was no where near as nice as my blade of choice (at the time), the red personna. I kept the pack of feathers and I tried again about half a year after starting. They still were not my cup of tea at that point. I gave...

    Shark Differences

    I love the Super Chrome. The Super Stainless is hit or miss for me, and life is too short to put up with iffy blades.

    Calling any/all Kamado Cermic Grill Owners (NOT BGE owners)

    I am a BGE owner, but I am not here to sway any opinions of brands, just here to welcome any other members of the ceramic grill club. I am loving it.

    Ever Ready 100 restore. Leave the handle hollow?

    Big fan of the heft. I used a few coins, a portion of a packing peanut, and some epoxy to fill mine. It feels perfect to me. More of a "quality" feel now.
