    Razor and Blade Combos

    Today's shave I used a Personna Platinum Chrome in my Razorock Jaws with TOBS Eton College cream. It produced the closest shave I have ever had. Yesterday, the same type of blade in my Edwin Jagger DE89 produced the worst shave I ever had. Do you find a difference like that where the same...

    Shaving Disaster

    A little over a month into straight shaving and I was reminded this morning that shaving is an art. It requires your focus and attention. After a couple of weeks of nearly perfect shaves I experienced one full of nicks and weepers and razor burn. It started off well. Lathered up, nicely sharp...
