    A Great Shave with a $10 Tech

    Last week on BST the seller had several razors for sale, one of which was a target razor for me. I made an offer on the target razor and tossed 2 Techs in the offer to make it a better deal for the seller and reduce the price of my target razor. The Techs were $10.00 user grade razors. The 3...

    Toss it or Restore it

    Recently with the help of B&B members, I started polishing a few of my modern matte razors with excellent results so I thought that I would give an old razor that seemed lost a shot. I found a Goodwill online that looked hopeless but I wanted a good test. The photos show before and after with a...

    The Quick Hook, Instant Gratification, or Patient?

    When you acquire a new razor how many shaves before it stays or goes? Too often I think that we do not give a new tool enough time. I often see razors on BST for sale and the comment like new "only used 2-3 times". I think that we may abandon a new razor too soon in part because we have several...

    Windsor SE1 from Satin to Polished

    Above the Tie closed out their Windsor SE1 Satin stock for half price in December. I was fortunate to grab one before they were gone at a great discount. Once received I swapped out the stock handle (which is a nice handle) for the Razorock Titanium to reduce the overall weight of the razor and...

    Colonial General from Matte to Polished

    Take a look. This took about an hour. I used several polishing compounds and a Dremel on slow with a wool polishing wheel and then finished up with an all-cotton wheel and MAAS (No sandpaper). The interior blade surfaces were not touched. Not bad for the first polish. A little more time between...

    Colonial General V1

    Received my CG v1 in the mail today from B&B member. Sanitized it, loaded a Proline and went to work. Absolutely no work required. This is a heavy razor but easy to use and easy to adjust to the proper angle and pressure. Great shave, closer and smoother than the Vector at less than half the...

    Schick Injector vs. Vector

    Schick Injector vs. Vector Seems unfair for a $25-$35 razor to take on a $200 favorite. I have owned a Vector and agree that it is a great razor. The Vector is efficient and easy to use; however, I was never satisfied with the handle (too narrow for me) and Blackland does not offer...
