    Jordan from my town just won Big Brother!

    ... And a cool $500,000.00! Jordan comes from Matthews, NC which is in the same county as Charlotte. This is also the same town mretzloff (Matthew) comes from. It's quite possible he might know her or went to school with her! It was great seeing someone from my hometown win one of these...

    6th National Shaving Collectibles Extravaganza - Serious Shaving Porn!

    I actually found this by accident over at the bay, but I found the website as well. I can't go to this, but it sure looks like the place to be for some serious collecting as well as draining your wallet. You might have to sell everything you own and live on the streets, but you could...

    Paint for Blue Tip or Red Tip SS?

I'll be cleaning and polishing it up tonight and plan on keeping this for my use. I would like to repaint the tip as close to its original...

    RoyalShave PB2 First Rate Badger Brush - Great Quality! - Low Price!

    I purchased this brush from Royal Shave a while back, and it's been a fairly regular part of my rotation. It certainly doesn't stand up to my Shavemac D01 Silvertip, but for $27.95, I've been amazed at how well it does. It's soft, yet stands up pretty good, and whips up lather with the best of...
