I like red acrylic brush, esp. transparent ones. I am surprised that there aren't more of them. Or maybe I just haven't liked the ones I've seen. Is it hard to do red well?
I just ordered this Yaqi for my birthday.
I previously repurposed my Semogue 830 with a badger knot
I made a comment on the Timeless Aluminum razor thread that I find these 3 razors to be similar in efficiency. @Calm_Shaver couldn't imagine that anything could better his Rocca. I get it - it's great. But he asked if I might compare the 3 razors mentioned. Now, I have.
For background, I...
I am looking for a stand for my Asylum RX. I’ve looked at a lot of pictures, but rarely see them pictured in any stand.
What are you guys using?
I did find this one pictured below, but couldn't find where the stand comes from.
I have a Weber Polished Head razor for trade, with the bulldog or wave handle.
I am looking for a Blackland Vector or a folding Feather DX in wood handles or an Asylum RX.
I have only recently discovered the artist club type SE razors and really enjoy the shaves. I already have the stainless...
Tomorrow, I will receive an MR-SE head from @86-foxtrot. While searching for more information on the MR-SE, I found this video. I've never seen an ear-to-ear stroke before. This guy does 2 of them at the 12:15 mark. I don't plan to adopt his technique, but give him credit for speeding up his...
Specifically a razor head from the MR-SE version of this razor.
I have DE razors and straight razors to trade if you have an interest, including English and French Gillettes. If you want a straight razor, I will be sure they are shave ready when shipped.
Or a straight up purchase.
I’ve got a Maddard 2-band in 26 mm due in today. I’ve also got an old Semogue 830 handle that I’ve always admired.
I tore out the metal cup and drilled it out to 26mm. Its beautiful, like a crystal glass. But I sure miss the red color.
Could I paint the inside with Testers enamel, then...
I bought this 13/16ths razor recently. I don’t know if it was ever used. The edge had some rough spots, that honed out well. It has one of the thinnest bevels I've seen, in my limited experience.
What surprised me most was the black horn scales. I had to use a loupe to convince myself it...
I need to pay forward for some members who helped me get started with straights after some time with DEs. In light of the Gold Dollar Mod Competition currently underway, I’d like to offer up this razor. The competition thread is here: 2018 Gold Dollar Mod Competition
It it a standard Gold...
I am quite excited to receive my first thuri today and expect it will be that magic rock that solves all my honing shortcomings. :001_tongu
The heavily used side is quite wavy and gouged from chisles. It’s also darker, but that might be oil. I honed the flatter side as below. It’s a pretty...
I just emptied a tin to use for some new samples. This came from a D R Harris shave stick, sliced and pressed. Nice cedar and sandalwood scent.
If you'd like to try it, let me know. Preference given to someone that has not gotted to try a D R Harris soap.
I've recruited a work buddy into the hobby, so I would have someone to visit with on wet shaving. Seriously, I've got no one to talk to about it.
Well, he's hooked. I started him on my Muhel R89 Twist. He likes the shave, but the thickness of the head bothers him under the nose. It never...
I am just looking for a .95 base. OC is preferred.
I have several things for trade and we can make up differences in cash.
I have a beautiful #88 2-pc raised flat bottom (RFB) razor, not pictured.
I have three 7 o'clock bakelites pictured -- 2 in cases & 1 with metal handle.
I have a...
I'm trying to find out which Gillette this belongs to. It appears to be a version of a Tuckaway -- classic tuckaway bottom, but fully knurled instead of diamond knurled. It is claimed to be part of a New DeLuxe razor. I can't find one on Mr-Razor's site.
I've read a couple of posts likening Le 3e Homme de Caron to the scent of Nuavia Blu. I'd love a EDT that smells like Blu.
So, is this really the same scent? If not, does it go well with Blu?
I'm going to France this summer and thought this might be a great souvenir. Any suggestions of...
I am looking for a Gillette Goodwill razor from England.
I can trade (as below) or buy outright. Or, I'd appreciate any help in finding one.
I've been modestly collecting English razors over the past year. It started with the RFBs (#77/88, #44s, fang tab decolette), then flat bottom news...
