I'm quite interested in Indian cuisine and find their herbs and spices fascinating. Asafoetida is a resin that Indian people call Hing. It is quite often used when garlic and onions are unavailable in order to flavour dals and various other dishes. It is easy to use too much - less is often...
The Weber Bulldog handle is significantly heavier than the stock EJ handle and works very well imo.
Might be my imagination at work, but I seem to remember reading somewhere that they are still being sold.
You should definitely buy it. It will provide you with at least 40 years of great shaves. When you use that razor in 2040 and think of the pleasure that's it's given you over the last 20 years 80 dollars will seem like nothing.
For about 3 years I've had a Simpsons and a Muhle and they each get used a couple of times a week. Don't think that either has ever lost a hair, so I think that a very long time is your answer. If the handle pops out it can always be glued back in.
A week or two ago I replied to an MWF post, with tongue slightly in cheek, stating that it gets sulky if it's not used regularly - it's actually the truth. I experienced exactly the same issues as the OP with the first puck that I owned. It does happen to other hard soaps, but not quite to the...
My two favourite razors (at the moment) are my Feather AS-D2 and Muhle Rocca. Very different from each other, the Feather being very mild and the Rocca moderately aggressive. They do have one thing in common for me though - a very smooth BBS result. You say that you have sensitive skin, so you...
AS-D2 is a superb razor, but only if you get the angle spot on, and I do mean spot on.
Being a very mild razor the blade exposure is minimal and if you miss the right angle the shave is mediocre at best. Handle at 45° (± 2°) is where it performs beautifully. It takes a bit of getting used to as...
MWF is a soap that likes to be used daily, otherwise it gets sulky. If you're going to rotate it with other soaps make sure that you put a lid over it, so that it can't see what you're doing. It's the reason why the ceramic bowl has a lid.
Over time, my Muhle Rocca has replaced my Weber PH as my favourite stainless steel razor. I wasn't too keen on it at first and very nearly sold it, but now I've learned to use it properly I wouldn't be without it. Very smooth and mighty close shaver - looks fantastic too.
