    2020 Shave Purchase Sabbatical - Those Daring Men with their Jaunty Razors & Jalopies

    Hello fellow drivers: I have to report that I'm out. I was distracted by a shiny Gibbs adjustable that appeared at an extremely low price (for a Gibbs). Best of luck to you. Bob

    PIF: West Coast Shaving-Zingari Man "SOLOIST"

    Zingari Man is one of the few soaps that I'm interested in trying this year. I'm busy trying to work my way through around 30 tubs of soap, but ZM is on my list of things to check out. It's hard to go against Miles Davis, but I think I'll say that Dizzy Gillespie is right up there as well. I...

    18 different British Gillette Aristocrat and Popular sets - a partial historic overview and my collector’s journey (pics galore)

    Agreed. And who knows if it's just the idiosyncrasies of the two razors I happen to own?

    18 different British Gillette Aristocrat and Popular sets - a partial historic overview and my collector’s journey (pics galore)

    Excellent and informative post, Peter. I've owned all 4 generations of Aristocrats because, like you, I figured that I should find my favorite. I've disposed of my 3rd and 4th gen razors and am trying to decide what to keep between my 1st gen, 2nd gen, and #47 Popular set. From an aesthetic...

    Timeless .95 ss tour pass-around!!

    I've had 3 more shaves with the 0.95 since my last report. First one was a shave off with my 2-piece RFB. I can report that the shave off was a virtual tie in both smoothness, efficiency, and joy. If you know the RFB that I'm using, you'll know that the weight differential between it and a...

    Which Gin?

    One of my favorite gins is St. George Terroir. It’s got botanicals of the Bay Area. Not totally traditional - I get a little more pine than straight juniper - but not too far from the norm. It really does give you a sense of place.

    Which Gin?

    The Ungava is actually quite nice. I’ve had it in a g&t but not in a martini. The color dilutes out fairly quickly so you don’t grt the impression you’re downing a glass of Mountain Dew or urine.

    Timeless .95 ss tour pass-around!!

    I just realized that I haven't reported back yet about the Timeless. As background, I'm very familiar with the Timeless 0.68 as I have had an 0.68 SB for about a year and a half. During this time, it's been my most-used razor by far (150x vs. the next - a Schick E injector - at 42x). More...

    HIRAM razor, rebirth of the Cobra Classic

    Thanks for your review, Gus. I've been looking at both of these razors and developing a slight case of FOMO as I'm gearing up for the 2020 sabbatical. I recently picked up a Cobra Classic and I think I'll stick with that and my General for next year.

    Maggards' carried it for a while as well, but it looks as if they've cleared their stock. The only thing left is Warm Woods Shaving Paste.
