    FSOT Karve Razor 3" w/ D Plate FS or Trade for 6s

    For sales is a Karve with the 3" handle and a D plate. Everyone else seems to love it, but I don't think the geometry is for me. Asking $70 which is 20% off and I'll mail it priority and you'll have it in a few days CONUS. Would also trade for a Rockwell 6s and make it dollar for dollar...

    Tribute Scents

    There are a lot of soaps (and splashes) out there that pay tribute to (rip off?) famous edts or aftershaves from years past. I've had some great experiences and some meh experiences, so I appreciate that matching someone else's scent is easier said than done. It's all the more impressive if...

    Strike Gold Kennedy mini review

    I just had a great shave this morning with the Kennedy shave soap from Strike Gold and wanted to share that since there isn't much on here covering their stuff. Apologies in advance, but I'm not really the guy to break down slickness to the decimal and so on. It lathers like a dream -- very...

    Masters Sunday Drink of Choice

    What's everyone drinking for Masters Sunday? In warmer weather, beer and golf go together like peanut butter and chocolate, but today I'm having a Last Word - second only to Manhattans on my all time cocktail list and it's green.
