    Show us your razors!

    With so many razors on the market over the last decade it's hard not to get bamboozled with choice. This is my razor block, handmade and crude but it does the job! The Razor Block, sounds like Razorock! You can see that all the holes are occupied except for one! What will fill that down the...

    The Fatip Testina Gentile is a DE89 Killer!

    Hello gents, hope you're all well. As you can see, curiosity got the better of me and I had to order a Fatip Testina Gentile in gold no less. Now, I already own a Piccolo, Grande, (both of which are OC) and a recent addition to the Fatip family, the Lo Storto slant, which I cannot praise highly...

    Fatip Lo Storto OC Slant - Review

    Well gents, I just had to try the Fatip Lo Storto (the crooked) as I always wanted a slant. I had my first shave with it today and what a shave it was. I'd a BSS in three passes, it's as close as a Muhle R41 without the roughness, and as close as a Muhle R94 Rocco without the price! While my...

    Wilkinson Sword Double Edge TTO

    Hi everyone, It's been over 5 years since I've been on here! Unbelievable really, but I haven't returned to cart shaving, I'm still a big DE man and it's only recently I decided to buy some new stuff. I've been using Fatip OC and Muhle R41 since 2012 and mainly Proraso soaps and balms. I'm...

    Wilkinson Sword Soap Puck Review

    Hello gents, it's been a while since I logged in here as I was super-busy. I thought I may as well contribute something worthwhile as I was at it. I was in Tesco buying a few Palmolive soaps sticks (the best a man can really get for €0.65) when this Wilki tub caught my eye. I had seen...

    Maguire's Barbershop Newcastle, England

    I was amazed a few days ago to see Maguire's Barbershop are back and have a great new website. There was some malarkey on 'the bay' last year I remember. This was a 'bay' shop that I always wished had a website outside of the 'bay' and here it is. It's a dream come true. I've been stuck on it...

    Rubie Or Not Rubie!

    I have in my possession two packets of Gillette Rubie blades. They are both made in Russia but the art work is slightly different! It says they are both made by PCT. The top pack was bought from a vendor is the U.S. and the bottom pack from a vendor is Russia. Are these the same blade? Rubie...

    I got these in a sample pack of mainly Rapira blades from a Russian trader in Moscow. Where are Schick blades made?

    Peter Gabriel with Gillette Tech

    I found this pic from the early 70s of Peter Gabriel shaving the wrong part of his body with a Gillette Tech! Peter stop, all you need shave is your face!

    English Leather!

    Popped this at Walmart last month when visiting the U.S. I had no way of sampling it as it was factory sealed. I'm not to gone on it but at $8 it didn't break the bank! The scent is kinda 70s and would probably scare off the modern woman, provoking thoughts of axe murdering psycho at one whiff...

    Family Dollar and Dollar General DE Blades

    During a recent trip to Arizona I came across DE Blades in both Family Dollar and Dollar General. It says they are made in South Korea so is it a fair assumption that they are Dorco blades?

    Anyone for Stetson?

    I picked this up in Walmart for around 5 bucks. It's not bad once it settles and smells rather like an expensive cologne!
