    Kent Infinity Silvertex?

    What do you think about this brush? I have a Semogue 1470 and a Simpson Special in best. I really like the Semogue, but I would like to skip the soaking step. The handle on the Kent is very good looking, and if the fibers are as soft as on the Semogue I think I might get one. Any help is...

    Take a break.

    ... and listen to Schubert's "Ellens dritter gesang" more commonly known as "Ave Maria". This beautiful masterpiece is quite commonly performed and you will probably have heard it before. Do you have a piece of classical music that you like to listen to? If so, what? Sorry if there already...

    Best cheap hone for touch-ups

    Basically the title says it all. I'm a student on a budget so I was looking for an "inexpensive" solution. I have been looking at coticules, CNATs and Yellow lakes. I know there are Thuringian, Arkies and many other hones out there, but they seem very expensive. I would like to keep this under...

    Petersburg Products International

    I have heard it said somewhere on this forum that PPI has a production run of a few blades at one time, and after a while they will retool and then start producing another bunch of blades. I have also have it heard that PPI has restarted production of a few "discontinued" blades and if my first...

    DOVO vs. Ralf Aust vs. Revisor

    Looking for my next razor. The only one i have is one of Larry's sight unseen razor. It's a 5/8 half hollow Pribyl bros. magnetic razor. I was first looking at the Dovos availible from norwegian dealers, as i was at first unwilling to deal with costums. But then Ralf Aust seems to get a lot of...

    Dovo Mother of pearl question.

    I was thinking of picking up a DOVO MOP mainly because i think it might be the most beautiful modern production razor (in my price class). Do i have to worry about the gold wash coming off, or the gold wash on the spine coming off after honing? Thanks in advance.

    Taking the plunge.

    I have ordered a sight unseen razor and a poor man strop kit from Larry at whipped dog. This should set me up for the beginning right?
