    Cold water splash to close the pores.

    How cold does the water have to be to close the pores after a shave? I live in Florida and the water isn't that cold coming out of the tap. Its summer now and its running about 78F, 25C. Its warm enough when I do water changes for the tropical fish tank I just run it straight out of the cold...

    DE razor geometry. A system for measuring aggressive razors.

    I have been trying to wrap my head around DE razor geometry regarding aggressive and mild razors. I realize that there is a lot of emphasis on using blade gap to rate the aggressiveness or mildness of razors. Some razors even state their blade gap in the razors name. The razor lives in a three...

    Need a new brush. How about one with a cork handle.

    Mantic59 has a review of this new brush from Pacific shaving Limited edition. The handle is cork it floats. They say cork is very water proof and anti- microbial. I like the handle. This is a synthetic brush. They wanted to make a brush that was sustainable. Asking $39.99 I'm mulling over if I...

    Wild looking razor. What is it?

    I was looking at vintage razors on Etsy and stumbled across this wild looking razor. The site said it was an unusual 1920s Gillette old type ball end. I don't think its all Gillette. The plate says perfect patent pending. What is this razor used for?

    Good Buy

    I recently purchased a Gillette new LC razor. I showed it to my wife, and she asked if it was used. I'm thinking she was going to criticize the razor. I said it was used and it was vintage from the 1930s. She looked at further and said, “Hey this is nice they don’t make things like this any more...

    La Supérieure Dulci Tobacco Shave Cream By Wholly Kaw. I'm tempted.

    Wholly Kaw a well liked shave soap maker is debuting a shaving cream. Sharpoligist has a write up about it. I think a good point is made the producer of the UK shaving creams are all by one producer which pretty much uses the same formula with a tweak here and there for different companies...

    Shaving soap sample SAD

    I have discovered that it is also possible to get too much shaving soap samples. Of course, I bought the samples with the intention of finding a soap with a good scent and good performance and later buy a full container. Then I wait until I use some existing soap up. Then I pursue the shaving...

    Newbie product assessment.

    This is my take on the products I’ve used so far. I started shaving with a DE about a month ago. Preshave: I have only used the American shaving company preshave oil so far. I know some think this isn’t really necessary, but I think it helps a little bit. It has argan and Jojoba oil which I...
