    Arko August 2021

    Happy Day 2 of Arko August! It's nice to see all types of razors, DE, SE, Straight, AC, Injectors. Did a shave with the same DE Kamisori as yesterday, but I used a Treet Black Beauty. Finished with Duru Limon. Nice stuff.

    What would you tell your past newbie self about wet shaving?

    Stock up on Personna 74s, any and all cased Gillette razors , Old Spice soap and aftershave, but stock in Apple, Google, and sell your car and use it to buy Bitcoin. Oh yeah, don't marry your ex.

    Acid etching Inquiry

    Acid etching or electro etching can be done easily at home, however the hard part is actually getting the tiny letters neatly outlined in protective coating. The metal where you want the etching has to be bare, and all the surrounding metal has to be protected against the acid or electro...

    That's the standard twist up container you can get at Maggards or West Coast Shaving, with the label put on with clear packing tape. Fits an Arko stick very well.

    Arko August 2021

    Arko August! Had an interesting shave with a new razor, a kami that takes half DE blades. Came with four Derby Professional blades. My Arko stick has 68 shaves on it. What also made the shave interesting is that I snoozed my alarm for 15 minutes, too. Nothing like rushing to work while trying...

    Arko August 2021

    I humbly request to be downgraded from Arko Sharko Whole Hog to Arko Gung-ho. You know how it is on B&B, you read some threads and all of a sudden, you have to pull out a razor you haven't used in years. In my case, it's a Weck Sextoblade, and Shark doesn't make a hair shaper blade that would...

    Kirko sees my actions as honorable and proper. Why deny yourself the excellence of Arko just because of a calendar name?

    Where is the Tallow?!

    On a certain auction site, Tabac refills can be had for 15.50 BIN, free shipping. The seller has 7 left as of this posting, and confirmed to me it's the old formula, with tallow. I was going to stock up but didn't. I honestly feel like if I did, I would just want to hoard them and not use them...

    Opinions on Arko Scent?

    https://www.badgerandblade.com/forum/threads/cult-of-arko.285560/ https://www.badgerandblade.com/forum/threads/lets-name-the-arko-guy.383994/ And know that Kirko smiles upon the masses of shavers, adorned with billowy clouds of lather, the wonderful aroma of shaving soap wafting to the...

    Lupo stainless?

    I did a side by side test of the 72 and 95, and actually found that for me, the 72 was a slightly longer lasting shave.

    Oh well. The old reformulation game.

    Where is the Tallow?!

    So sad. Hope the new version is as good as the old version. Last year I bought a stick refill, and earlier this year I bought a puck in the milk glass jar. I have no idea of they are the old or new versions, the boxes are long gone. But I'm not going to chase all over creation for "old formula"...

    Lupo stainless?

    I would suggest the 72. Great smooth shaves, efficient, all around a great razor. The 72 is my favorite model of the Lupo, and I've tried them all except the Dual Comb.

    Weird shave experience

    I get that feeling when using Treet Black Beauty blades. Carbon steel, feels a bit tuggy during the shave, but zero aftershave burn.

    no forum for mugs so it goes here... :)

    Awesome gift! How cool would it be to have it filled with the same soap he used all those years ago!
