    I have total DE Razor analysis paralysis

    get the piccolo and you'll find out for yourself :a17: my favorite mid-level totally smooth blades are the Gillette Rubie or the Bolzanos. you may see some bad reviews of bolzanos on B&B but for some reason they seem to work great in my Fatips (and i've seen others post the same opinion)...

    I have total DE Razor analysis paralysis

    My reasons for why the regular nickel open comb Fatip Piccolo is a great razor to learn with.- It has a certain handmade character that makes it feel like a vintage razor even though it's brand new. It'll teach you how to load a blade. And what I think is the most important, and this is for...

    I have total DE Razor analysis paralysis

    Get a Fatip Piccolo, less than 20 bucks, nickel plated over brass, will last forever, and if you can learn to shave with that you'll be able to shave with anything

    Vote: How many razors do you own?

    17 in the DE/SE cool category + 4 different cartridge handles that don't ever get used anymore. i started old-timey shaving about 2 years ago with an inherited 66 Gillette Slim. I got pretty good with that for about 3 months then i started getting drawn to Fatips, bought 3 different Piccolos...

    Is this Gillette Slim in Excellent Condition or Just Very Good?

    cleaning a vintage razor isn't refurbishing.... it's a necessary part of this hobby. I see that you're a new member here, are these your first vintage razors? No matter how fantastic the condition is when you get an old razor, NOS, mint, excellent, very good, whatever you wanna call it...the...

    Is this Gillette Slim in Excellent Condition or Just Very Good?

    while i may agree the price was a just a bit high compared to other slims on ebay, i still do think it's in really great condition. did you try cleaning it at all first? if it's just a little tarnished in one spot on the edge (which i can't even see in the pics), that probably would've cleaned...

    Old street scene. What year?

    Me too, I probably learned more than I ever needed to know about Jasper Ave. also LOL . I love these "what the heck is this?" question kinda' threads. I always had an odd talent for those memory/match & "find the difference" type puzzles... and I'm pretty good/fast at googling.

    Your favorite athlete of all time

    Wayne Gretzky, a skinny pipsqueak that dominated a sport of giant goons. For as amazing as he was at scoring his own goals (all-time record holder) he was even double and triple better at setting up & assisting his teammates for goals. He had so many assists that even if he had never scored...

    Old street scene. What year?

    on the 2nd building, lower right corner, between sidewalk and window is a sign for Old Chum Tobacco, you may want to research what years that was available. I saw an old chum tobacco tin thru googling with a date of 1923.

    Shaving gear shop in NYC

    It's a small narrow store but has a mind boggling huuuuuuuuuuge selection of shaving gear. It's closed on Sundays, so keep that in mind when planning. You can easily spend over an hour or 2 just looking and sniffing stuff

    We killed the golden goose (aka DE shaving is a hipster fad)

    ooohhh wait, hold on a minute, ....so maybe you meant that DE shaving/wet shaving was about to jump the shark (go downhill) but then the gillette heritage swooped in, saved it, and started a fad. So it was the nail in the coffin to the shark-jumping and not the nail in the coffin to...
