    What’s up with Charcoal Goods?

    I admit I am confused. I have read on this forum the accolades of Charcoal Goods razors. I have also read how they were moving and the possibility they may not reopen. Now I see they are offering the “everyday” razor. I also see where they have level 2 razor on their web site for sale. So…...

    Proraso – Tubes & Tub - almost free

    I am not a fan if Proraso, it just does not work for me. I have a slightly used tube of blue and of white. Also included is a nearly full tube of red. Ideally, I would like to get about $10.00 bucks to over shipping. However, if you can only afford $5.00, that will do. And, if you are...

    Black Friday Sale?

    I recall last year Above the Tie had a Black Friday sale and I purchased an ATT SE1. Do many of the other online retailers have Black Friday sales? I am specifically interested in Blackland, Timeless, and Colonial.

    Timeless Questions

    First, assuming the same base plate and blade gap, does the scalloped cap shave differently than the smooth cap? Second, what is the general opinion of the dual-comb? It seems like a great idea to me, but then I wonder why more brands don’t offer it.

    Discounts Galore

    Well, maybe “galore” is a little over the top, but I did get two emails offers with very nice discounts. First, Blackland is giving an 18% discount on their products, yes including the Vector, in celebration of Shane’s birthday. I believe it ends tomorrow. The Vectors are not in stock, but...

    FHS Blades – Question and Comment

    First the question – Why are people only getting 1 to 2 shaves per blade from the FHS blade when all the other Feather blades provide many more shaves per blade?

    Technique for injector and AC razor

    As a recent convert from DE to SE shaving, I have been using the Gem style razors. I understand that the shaving angle is very steep with the Gem style razor (head of the shaver almost touching the skin). I want to branch out to other SE razors. Does one use the same technique (“ride the...
