    Mail Call from Paladin

    My tortoise beehive arrived yesterday. I'll try to get a pic up later today. Two things really impressed me: The feel of this handle is incredible! It really has some heft to it! It feels substantial, it has gravitas! Second, the smell of this knot is great! I can tell that Ken and company...

    Which razors use the blade corner for alignment?

    Having just succeeded in ordering a new Wolfman, my curiosity drove me to start looking into James' work. I finally started looking more closely at his other razor, the BBS-1, and I was struck by the design. I have never seen that alignment scheme used before. Are there any other razors that...

    I'm looking to buy a Wolfman Polished Stand to fit a WRH1 handle. I'm willing to pay up to $100 plus shipping for a new unused mint condition stand.

    Holy cow! I finally managed to order a Wolfman today!

    There I was, diligently working, trying to make my boss proud, when what should happen? I received a text alerting me that Wolfman Razors had just tweeted that he had added stock to his store! I don't think that I've moved that fast in decades! I had my browser opened and was clicking the...

    Let's See your Shavemac Collections!

    I hope no one minds, I borrowed an idea for a thread from a gent at TSN... Here is my Shavemac collection so far: The 3 Shavemacs in the front are straight from Bernd, the balance all have Shavemac 2 Band Silvertip knots. There are 2 Rudy Veys in the fron row, 2 Wolf Whiskers in the back...

    My blade split down the middle

    Something strange happened. I will be traveling home today, so I'm packing. When I took my razor apart I discovered that the Gillette Nacet I had used for 5 shaves had broken in half down the middle. My last shave was not negatively affected, I still got a nice DFS+ with no irritation. I...

    Nacet = WOW!

    Just tried a Gillette Nacet for the first time last night. All I can say is WOW!!! Even though it was the first shave on the blade, and I have every reason that tonight's 2nd shave will be even better, the shave was fantastic! The blade was really sharp, almost scary sharp, but was also so...

    Mail call from Leo Frilot of PerFectWoodworks

    After seeing some posts from member Ronweston of his custom brushes from Leo Frilot of PerFectWoodworks, I had to contact Leo myself. Leo was a pleasure to deal with, and he made me an incredible brush! That's a Shavemac 2 band silvertip knot.

    Any theories on why Polsilver SIs get smoother with use?

    I had my second shave on a Polsilver SI this evening, and sure enough, it was smoother than the first. If this week goes anything like the previous two, this blade will keep getting smoother with every shave. Does anyone have any theories on why this happens? Does this happen with any other...

    Did any of you guys join the fun on the Paladin site today? They released about 50 new brushes. They're all gone now, but I managed to snag a Falstaff in strawberry amber:

    Stirling Orange Chill = WOW!

    Tried my bottle of Stirling Orange Chill for the first time since the weather's turned, and holy moley! This was a really chill blast! The orange scent was great too, I think I experienced at least a little cooling from the scent alone! But the menthol blast was amazing! I'd put it right up...

    First Shave With a Pils 101NE

    My new Pils 101NE arrived in the mail today, so tonight I shaved with it for the first time. I had read here about the heavy weight, especially in the head, but my daily driver is an Above The Tie R1, not exactly light. So the weight was not a problem. I had also read that the correct angle...
