    Treet Carbon Steel Blade.

    Hey Gents, just tried these out the first time (Maroon/Yellow Package and Black Blade). To be honest I wanted to like them, for the price and just because it looks different and its something other than Stainless... Unfortunately the shave was... rougher that I would like. Had to really ease...

    Royal Blue Ink and Water-Resistance

    I was just looking up a review on a Royal Blue on Youtube and there was something I wanted to point out ... Most ink reviews show a water-resistance test of some kind.
