    Just saying hi

    I've been absent from this forum for a few years and thought I would drop a note since I'm picking up the hobby again. Is there still a WTB section?

    A Sad Day - Corroded Bartmann 6/8"

    I wanted to share with everyone the results of not protecting your straight razors properly when in storage. I live in a very humid country and as soon as I saw my razors start corroding I immediately went and bought a dry box. I never needed such a thing in Canada but it's absolutely...

    Cigars in Philippines

    Hello everyone. It's been while since I've logged onto B&B and posted anything. I'm now in Philippines on business and had the opportunity to go shopping recently. I came across some locally made cigars and was tempted to buy some. Here's a pic of what I bought. They aren't stored in a...

    My birthday cigar

    Since today is a special day I thought I would smoke my Partagas Series D No. 4. I was told this was a No.1 cigar of the year. Can anyone confirm this? I am not sure if I should enjoy it now or wait until after my dinner. What do you guys think? Anyhow I'm also having it with a very smooth...

    Need some advice storing Cohiba Robustos in hot, humid Malaysia

    Hello cigar aficionados. Some of you may know that I left freezing cold Canada to start a new life in hot, humid Malaysia. A day before leaving for Malaysia I came across the opportunity to acquire a box of Cohiba Robutos at a really good price. I've always been curious about quality cigars...

    Presenting "El Diablo" a custom straight razor

    This is the first custom razor I've ordered and I must say I'm as happy as a kid in a candy store. When I first approached Brian (MileMarker60) I told him I wanted a French tip and a monkey tail in the shape of a dragon's tail. This is the end result. I originally wanted red dyed horn but his...

    Tutorial: Peening with nickel silver 'spike' pins

    I thought this might be helpful for newbies wanting to peen their own razor or anyone that comes across these spike style pins. They look like little nails and come with nickel silver collars. I find it much easier and quicker to peen with these then to use standard rods and washers. It's a...

    THIS IS OPEN TO ANYONE LIVING IN CANADA. I've got a modest shave ready straight razor in the bst that I've decided to give away. As the subject states this PIF is only open the Canadians or people living in Canada. The last two PIFs I had were won by Americans so I am keeping it home this...

    Some eye candy!

    Here are a couple of rollups which hold my collection of straights. The top one holds 15 and bottom one holds 12. I can't decide if I want to use my rollups or my Hobby Lobby pencil case binder to hold my regular rotation of straights. I hope you enjoy the pics.

    I am PIF'g my Tonsorial Gem Straight Razor

    I have this straight razor listed in the bst but there doesn't seem to much interest in this shave ready straight so I am going to give it away! There's a catch though - the winner must make a minimum donation to B&B of $10. http://badgerandblade.com/vb/showthread.php?p=3033601#post3033601...

    Joseph Rodgers restored with Paua Abalone scales

    This blade took me about 4-5 hours of buffing! It had lots of rust all over the blade as well as pitting. Fortunately the stamp on the tang was very deep so I was able to remove 99% of the pitting. Sorry I forgot to take the before photo but trust me it looked bad. :lol: I chose to rescale...

    Postal rates at Canada Post

    I recently sold a Superspeed to another member through the bst and estimated the shipping fee to be $3. Unfortunately when I went to the post office it turned out to be $11-$12 for parcel! I refunded the money as the shipping cost would have been too cost prohibitive. The reason as I learned...

    I am having trouble finding the doming set on Rockler's website. Was it Rockler that had the multi piece doming tap set? Apparently they offer free shipping as a cutter promotion and so I bought this would be a great opportunity to purchase a doming set to make domed washers for my restores...
