    My Parker Variant .02¢ Worth Review

    After it returned to me from North Shore Razors, I removed the paint that was near the top of the handle. This exposed the brass, giving it that nice "firehouse" color combination of red, black, & brass. Scott Ferguson did a really nice job. He was prompt with the work, and was very helpful...

    My Parker Variant .02¢ Worth Review

    I agree with you davidepeden, the razor performs exceptionally well, but the finish sucks. I eventually had mine painted. Once it returned to me, I made a few more modifications, and am happy with it.

    Opinions - Pinaud Clubman Special Reserve Cologne

    You fine sir, nailed that eluding scent that I could not place my finger on! Aramis! The same cologne worn by my drill instructor circa 1981, and by me later on. I just landed my hands on a bottle, and couldn't figure out why I was so familiar with it! I plan to post a review later, once I've...

I'll try and write an entertaining review once I've given it a go. I may have to try the Citrus Musk in the early fall, as the leaves begin to turn, and those damn...

    Fine Platinum, I love you, but...

    I Have To Confess It's not you, it's me. So what's that have to do with shaving you ask? I'm referring to my love of Fine Accoutrement's Platinum Aftershave. It was early fall, September 22nd to be exact, when I began this whirlwind love affair. After conducting my usual overkill of internet...

    The Parker Variant is Available!

    You do realize there is no 11? The dial setting is from 1 to 5. Going around again IS possible, but subject to fines including jail time. I know it was silly, but I actually read the instructions that came with it.
