    Beltmaster.com Belts

    I've seen reference to this site in some older threads. Does anyone have any direct (and more current) experience with their belts? They are very reasonably priced. I'm looking at the 1-1/8" dress belts in particular, but comments from experiences with any of their products is welcome. Do...

    The Real Cost Commercials / Do We Have To?

    Yesterday, after a long day of work and baseball practices.... and not exactly feeling so great (flu-like symptoms).... I sit down at 9 pm with a bowl of cereal which was the first chance I had to eat anything since lunch. My stomach was off and I didn't really feel like eating anything, but I...

    Ever Ready 1912 Made in Brooklyn Bright Nickel Replate (Krona Kruiser)

    It's my only heirloom razor. It belonged to my great uncle who I never knew because he passed away before I was born. It's an Ever Ready 1912 Made in Brooklyn, NY, USA and it's one of my best single edge shavers. It was originally plated in gold, but I much prefer a silver color plating so I...

    Hey guys. Today I just received a 1917 (Serial No. D768663) Gillette Flare Knob/Bell End Aristocrat. It has been beautifully replated in rhodium. No cracks and no bent teeth.... but also just the razor (no case). Got it off the bay and I could tell from the pictures that the vendor and...

    10,000 Posts and a New Ball Glove!

    Hey guys. Trust me.... this is shaving related.... and you'll see why. But first, let me say that I am 38 years old and have owned a total of 3 baseball gloves in my entire lifetime.... the most recent one (a Rawlings) lasted me that last 22 years. When I was five years old, I received a...

    Omega 20102 Boar vs. Proraso (Omega) Boar

    I have the most recent version of the Proraso (Omega) Professional Boar. I love it. I love the huge knot (26mm I think) and the high loft. The density, backbone, and softness of tips are just what I love in a boar brush. The loft is high, but the bristles are stiff, giving it great backbone...

    WB Pomades / Layrite Super Hold, Grants Golden Brand, or Imperial Barber Classic

    I ordered a jar of each from Royalshave/Pomades.com. I guess I can wait to get them and see how I like them, but I'm wondering which ones you guys who have tried all of them like the best. I currenly use the IB Classic, so I know what I'm getting into there. I like it a lot, but it dries a...

    Dumb Kohler Toliet Commerical

    This has got to be one of the dumbest wonders of the marketing world I've ever run across. There are so many things wrong with this commerical it isn't funny...... from the boys running into the bathroom while their mother is taking a bath, to the creepy way the mother looks at the boys as they...

    Okay, after over a year and a half of being into this thing of ours and hearing all about "The Veg"..... I more or less figured that if the Veg wants me, it will make it's intentions known someday. That day may have been today. I'm not saying I'm one of the chosen today, but I am about to find...

    Dalvey Shaving Brush

    Has anyone tried this one? http://www.dalvey.com/shop-online/shaving I kind of like the looks of the handle. Especially the underside of the base. Their other shaving gear looks pretty nice as well, but a little on the pricey side. Looks like their brushes come in synthetic, best...

    Injector Blades. Buy loose and reload into dispenser or not?

    Hello guys. Just getting into shaving with SE injector razors. Just Schick G types so far. I've seen references to reloading injector blades into an old metal dispenser rather than buying blades in a crappy plastic dispenser.... but I'm wondering what (if any) issues there are with reloading...
