    Small change - nice results!

    Well, I had the same shave routine every morning for years and years. Even when I used carts I shaved the same way. 1st pass WTG, 2nd pass ATG and 3rd pass XTG. So on a whim I changed it up a few weeks ago(tough to buck change) on the 2nd pass. So now 1st pass WTG, 2nd pass XTG and 3rd pass ATG...

    Rust on my Fatboy?

    How can a nickel plated brass razor have rust? Can someone tell if this is rust or something else? I have cleaned then polished it with Blue Magic but to no avail. Thanks for any help. Sent from my Moto Z (2) using Tapatalk

    Shaving Revolution blades

    Has anyone tried these blades? Saw them on Amazon recently. Seems well packaged. Where are they manufactured if anybody knows? I had mistakenly put this question in DE Saftey Razors. Sent from my Moto Z (2) using Tapatalk

    HydroLFE Kingfish

    Anybody have any experience with this shave soap? How's the scent, lather & slickness- good/not good? Saw it online and know nothing about it - just peaked my couriosity.

    Schick Karona

    Used a Schick Karona with plastic handle this morning and got a nice, comfortable shave. Did Schick make the Karona with an all metal handle? Sent from my Moto Z (2) using Tapatalk

    First shave with a Nacet....

    I had received a tuck of Nacets in a sampler a ways back and thought nothing of them. I became intrigued by the comments here of their sharpness so I tried one this morning. Well I found the comments to be true, they are damn sharp! Now for me I find them to be like a PolSilver, GSB or Astra but...

    Gillette 7 O'Clock Super Platinum

    I've heard both sides of the good and bad of these blades. I get smooth comfortable shaves with 7 O'Clock Green SS blades but I would imagine the Super Platinums are much sharper.

    Ever-Ready Brush Revamp

    Just starting a first time revamp of an Ever-Ready 200T I got off EBay. I cleaned it with soap four times as I wanted to use it but it had a nasty smell to it. Left it out on our deck for days and washed it a couple more times again but just couldn't get that rank smell out of it. Ditched that...

    Nivea Deep Post Shave Lotion

    Is this a new product from Nivea? I just saw an add for it and don't know anything about it. I like Nivea Post Shave Balm and have been routinely using it for years. So, anybody have experience with the Nivea Deep lotion - like/don't like?? Let me know your honest opinion. Sent from my Moto Z...

    Black Ops Razors

    I would imagine this question has been asked but here goes - Looks like Classic Shaving is the only one that carries these razors and all are out of stock. Does anyone have experience with BOR, good/bad/indifferent? I like the fact that they are a veteran owned and operated company and wanted...

    NOS Gillette Thin Blade Red Tuck

    Has anyone used this blade resulting in good shaves? I have an unopened tuck of these blades I got with a vintage Gillette and I'm thinking of trying them. Or just keep them as a cool collectors item, I don't know.

    Gillette Goal Super Platinum blades??

    Are these blades any good? I never saw anyone discuss these blades here on B&B, I got them in a sampler pack. Thanks for any insight you can pass on.

    Vintage razors - where do you find them??

    I'm just curious to see where we all find the vintage razors we enjoy so much. I have purchased six so far and all online- Ebay and Etsy. I haven't been to our local flee markets or yard sales yet. Where did you find yours?

    J4 Slim - awesome 1st shave......

    I just aquired a J4 Slim and used it for the first time this morning. Had a wonderful smooth shave using a Derby Premium blade. No tugging, nicks or irritation. It has a nice weight and feel to it - very happy addition to the stable.

    Elkaline Platinum coated blades

    Just saw these on Amazon - 50 blades for $10.99. Say they are made here in the USA from Swedish stainless steel. Anybody have any experience with these blades and are they truly made in the US? Good, OK or junk whats your opinion?

    Sputnik Teflon first time...

    Used a fresh Sputnik Teflon Coated blade for the first time today and was surprised with a smooth, comfortable shave. No nicks, tugging or irritation at all. Got them in a blade sampler and didn't know anything about them. Its only the first shave with a fresh blade so I would imagine time will...

    Sputnik Teflon Coated Blades

    Well, a great way to check out different blades is with a blade sampler. I had a blade sampler from a while ago and this morning needed a fresh blade and at the bottom was a five blade Sputnik pack. I tried one for the first time not knowing anything about them and didn't think too much of them...

    Nivea Sensitive Post Shave Balm

    Is this product any good?? I ask because Nivea just doesn't manufacture the original Replenishing Post Shave Balm anymore as I've been trying to find a supplier for some time now. Been using the original product with great satisfaction for years and now unfortunately I only have a quarter of a...
