    Razorock Game Changer .84 + Jaws

    Hello gentlemen, I haven't posted much lately. I hope you won't hold the fact that I'm extremely busy against me. I haven't used my Razorock Gamechanger/jaws in over a year. It's great but there's another one that's been monopolizing my shaving time so this one goes. The handle is an older...

    FS Karve E Plate SB

    Hello gentlemen, I have a new, never used E plate (safety bar) for the Karve razor. I don’t see myself ever using it so I’m offering it here. It’s developpes a bit of a darker patina due to sitting on the shelf in my bathroom. I’ll gladly provide pics to anyone interested. 20$ US (conus) or 25$...

    First shave with a Karve Open-comb plate

    A bit of context: The Karve razor is my favorite razor by far. I've owned tens of vintages and sold them all when I bought the Karve. It's perfect for me. I use it 90% of the time. I also use a Game Changer .84 and a Wunderbar. Both are great, just not Karve-great. I own safety bar (SB) plates...

It has developed a light blackish patina from sitting on the bathroom shelf but it is brand new. In the...

    Finished two soaps this week...

    So, I only always have 3 soaps in rotation. That way, I get some diversity and still finish soaps eventually. Plus, I don't want to start hoarding a bunch of soaps either so for me it works. Tonight I finished the Razorock Tuscan Oud, which gave me 41 shaves (125ml or 4.2oz). 2 days ago I...

    Who else stocked up on Henri & Victoria with their Black Friday sale?

    With the code from their mailing list, all of their old design products (they're revamping their packaging) were 75% off. I got 4 soaps and three splashes for 58$ canadian including taxes and shipping... Soaps: - Absinthe (I'm almost through my first jar of this and it's amazing) - Nautilus -...

    Well it's done: purged my vintage collection.

    I've been so amazed by the results I get with the Karve that I mentioned in a few threads that I was going to get rid of my vintage DEs collection. Well, it's done, the last of the ones I was selling sold today. The only ones I kept are: -a gold adjustable aristocrat: it looks like new (it's...

    Razorock Mamba & Baby Smooth (alu) for sale

    Hi, I have both of these for sale. The mamba's been used twice and is like new. The aluminium BBS has been used 5 times and is also in like new condition. They're great and appreciated by many around here but they don't work well enough for my beard. Here's a chance to get these a bit...

    The main impact harder water has on my shaving

    So we moved to a new house this week. Lots of work and all but it's all good in the end. We were in a house with a well and a water softener and now have municipal water, which means it's quite harder now than what I was used to. All my soaps lather just fine and are as slick as used to be...

    Had my first straight razor shave yesterday night.

    About a year ago I gave my brother a safety razor, a puck, a bowl and a brush. 5 months later he caught the straight bug so I bought him a nice vintage one from the BST here and he's been shaving with it ever since (bought stones and everything). So of course, on xmas 2016, he reciprocated by...

    British Gold Rocket cleaned up really nicely!

    So, I finally got this thing (I bought it for my brother, who found it online, and then gave it to me for xmas...no surprise but very cool nonetheless. Here are the post-cleanup pics, pretty cool. There's some plate loss on the safety bar and edge of the doors but, to me, it only shows it was...

    Help with a final identification?

    Hi guys, found this for 10$ from a local man. From the blurry pics I was thinking either Golden Rocket or Aristocrat Jr (british-made though). Now, I'm pretty sure that it's a Rocket but your final input is welcome as you're all much more knowledgeable than I am. -Gold plated -Diamond...

    British Ball-end tech took me by surprise

    I have a bunch of very nice vintage razors and I bought 2 british techs in a flea market while on vacation this summer, along with an Old set. I tried the old and one of the techs (with a braided-like handle). Both were very nice and ended-up in my rotation. The second tech was a simple ball-end...

    OLD type find while on vacation

    So, while visiting the in-laws a week ago, I hit a flea-market nearby and grabbed 3 razors, 2 british techs (one flat-bottom) and this OLD set: As you can see, it cleaned up real nice, although I haven't touched the blade bank yet. No bent tooth, a very slight handle crack but not...

    The lowly Canadian Tech

    I got one in a lot of 3 razors I bought a while ago. Having been preferring aggressive/efficient razors for a good while now, I was reluctant to try it but had to give it a go eventually. I've shaved 3 times with it so far (not consecutively though) and, while it is mild, I really appreciate it...

    So I bought two broken razors on ebay (and how I fixed 'em)

    And now I have two great working razors...:thumbup1: Bought these, a LH Super adjustable and a Flare Tip for 16$ (US) + shipping, which, with all said came to 40$ canadian...not too bad if I can manage to bring them back to life. The SA (K3, 1973) had a simple case of dropped-knob. 5 minutes...

    After shave PIF

    I always figured my first official forum PIF would be a "canada only" affair. However, I had an idea today and thought it'd be more fun this way: I'll be pif'ing 2 brand new bottles of after shave, which according to my research, aren't available in the U.S. 1st is a bottle of Aqua Velva...
