    Haward Razor - A new manufacturer from China, and the results are excellent!

    I ordered a 10-piece razor sample and they came in, finally had a chance to try it out. Produced an excellent result, the best I've seen come from China since Rimei and Boyou (the former being too expensive and the latter off the market). No tugging, no pulling, no razor burn. Three passes and...

    Feather AS-D2 Clone - Surprisingly it works well, with a few improvements

    Picked this up on Aliexpress about two weeks ago and it arrived the other day. First impressions: Very well made. They even copied the silver matte finish correctly, on both the handle and the head, and the weight is heavier than an original (110g vs 90g). Another improvement is the blade...

    I keep finding NOS blades at the flea market, here's two more.

    Interesting, they both share the same UPC number and the front packages are similar except the black/red border has been shifted on the front. One has hollow arrows (Argentina) on the blades while the others are solid (Mexico). Both dated 1991. I haven't opened them.

    Found these curious NOS blades at the flea market..

    Posted on reddit but figured I'd share here too. Not sure what these really are, best guess is Personna USA's. I do know they were made prior to 1989 because that's when the label was discontinued. The price was a steal, each box a dozen packs for $5. They don't slide out of the dispenser, the...

    Flea Market Find: Open Comb 30's Gold Aristocrat

    Probably one of my best finds yet, only $40. It's very weighted, condition is near-mint, looks like a keeper. Reminds me of a 40's super speed on steroids. Prices are high on ebay, I'm tempted to sell it but, I'll see how it shaves first. It came with the box, too.

    Review - Pacific DE Butterfly Razor @ Big Lots for $1.50

    I picked up one of these last week and finally had a chance to use it. First of all: The selling points on the package themselves are not true, at all. The handle itself is very light, it's not "quality stainless steel" because one of the doors fell off after the first shave. The whole thing...

    VTG Gillette Platinum Plus From the 70's - Best Blade Ever!

    I had no idea what I was missing out on. They make every other blade pale in comparison, sharper and smoother than anything else on the current market, by a long shot. They were so good, I didn't hear a lot of feedback and before I knew it, it was a bbs with minimal effort. I was sold a nice...

    First pass always a bit scratchy, am I crazy?

    It seems like every blade I use, there's always a bit of noise and scratchiness during the first pass and it kind of bugs me. There's no tugging, it's mostly just noise and it happens with every blade. Am I being irrational or is this normal?

    Very excited that I'll have something to give him for Christmas, this will probably never happen again in my lifetime. I was at the flea market it was just a random super speed, $5, that I originally passed on because it looked pretty bad but then did a double-take and figured what the hey. It...

    700 Blades for $40* I saw that link last night and figured what the hey, too good to be true right? I bought both orders. I spoke to the company who fulfilled the order, "Super Safety Razors". They denied any knowledge, any responsibility of and claim the title says 50 instead of 350:

    The Best Way To Use Williams!

    Williams shaving soap is really nice. It has a good scent, it's cheap, it dates back about 200 years, but it's also very hard and requires a 10-minute soak in hot water for an easy lather. So here's what I did: Grind it up with a cheese grater, smoosh it into a bowl best as possible, then add...
