    Total Newb....pondering the switch from electric to DE

    While I never liked an electric, as I had tried them a few times. I was a major user of Gillette cartridge systems and thought those were the best thing ever, and would purchase the latest multi-blade system. My first jump to DE was with an all aluminum Standard Razor in black. They had...

    Where are the Bakelite Razor Users?

    I have the PAA OC Slant, and I like the shave when I am one day out. But I am a terrible shaver and usually go a week. I tend to clog it up pretty quick. So, it just looks good in my drawer. I agree with the others though, no pressure, let it do it's thing and you will get a good shave out of it.

    The LEAF Razor, Reviewed...

    How is the snapping of blades? This was the part that kind of turned me off on the prospect of this razor.

    Viking Blades emperor chrome

    50 is not a bad price point for a razor like this. I think I do need to get an adustable into my lineup of razors. I always seem to go back to my first razor, even after sampling and buying more razors.

    Best Film Processing Services

    This is something I need to move forward on. I have followed the Darkroom on facebook for years, as local development was drying up. But about the same time I had kids and stopped actively shooting as much, and sticking with digital. I am glad there are still options out there. We just went to...

    Muddy's Meanderings

    I can't remember, it was from a trip to Hawaii I took in either 06 or 08. I was really getting a shot of the turtle and liked the tangs swimming along with him.

    Muddy's Meanderings

    Nope, they were shipped from Hong Kong via the bay. I had three to give away. I am glad you got a useable edge so quick.

    Trip to AoS with a $75 gift card

    I haven't been back to an AoS since the time I asked about the performance of a lather bowl. Instead of extolling how great it is, they tried to push their soap on me. I mean, there I was, willing to spend extra on a bowl, if it had some great performance. But they seemed to just want to push...
