I just got my first whetstones and lapped the 8k and 10k stones. These are the only stones I'd figure I needed since the razor is shaving but tuggy. The problem is that my 8k and 10k stones feel more rough than even the 400 or the 1k stone. Am I missing something here? Wrong lapping technique...
Is the Green Polishing Compound sold at Harbor Freight the same as chromium oxide? Can I apply this to a strop and use it the same as chromium oxide?

Does anyone know if there are any barber supply stores anywhere around Albany NY? I’d like to try more barbershop aftershaves but want to avoid shipping that’s more than the product or buying 10 years worth to offset shipping.
Thanks in advance
Walgreens has 20% off all normally priced stock. They also provide free shipping to the store. This is a good time to buy Williams, VDH soap, Florida Water, SE blades, and probably other things.
I’ve read that some people add glycerine to their aftershaves and sometimes shave soap. Where can I get glycerine locally and what’s the best deal?
I’d imagine they sell it at Walmart etc, but where in the store would it be?
My wife had this mug made for me at Walgreens for an anniversary gift. It’s from a box of Arko we received several weeks ago that showed up destroyed. We took the best pic we could of the box and I think it turned out great. (Best part, because I love a deal I think it was only $5)
I was thinking of ordering a test tube rack to put my safety razors in. On ali express there are options in size, 10ml, 25ml, 50ml.
Has anyone ever done this? If so what size works? I know 50 ml is too large. I’d like to go 10ml for hopefully a nice fit and cheaper price but thought I should...
Ive read many forums that refer to a brushes knot. Not to leave the brush in soap because it’ll hurt the knot etc. What is the knot?
Also other terms like backbone and anything else. What does it all mean?

i bought this Gem Jr and when I first got it it looked pristine. I soaked it for 10 min or so in 70% alcohol to sanitize it. Once I started using it it started getting really bad blemishes from just the water.
Any advice? Did I ruin the razor with the alcohol? I’m really hoping not because...
My friend is going to try DE shaving and wants a high quality soap. He said he likes orange/citrusy smells. Any recommendations? Preferably something on West Coast Shaving so he can get the free shipping over $35 for Father’s Day. Thank you.
