    A buffet of bunnies! Now how to cook them?

    Greetings, Gents! I could use a few recipes from those of you who partake in small-game hunting regularly. You see, this summer has produced an unprecedented explosion in my local rabbit population, which I have all-too-eagerly embraced as a food source. They've fattened all year on soybeans and...

    An intersection of obsessions. Advice appreciated!

    Gents, I can no longer deny it: I am obsessed with all iterations of tobacco. E-cigs, Cigars, Pipes... I can no longer call myself a dabbler. This leaves me with a conundrum- where the heck am I going to put all this stuff?! M'love is a vehement anti-tobacco crusader, but she tolerates my...

    A couple odd scents to match

    Greetings, fellow olfactory afficianados. I have a question that has been buzzing around my head, and I figured I would put it out there for the more learned students of the nose to ponder. My dilemma is thus: I very rarely get compliments from my significant other on colognes, but she cannot...

    Carving a couple Pipes. Maybe.

    Greetings, fellow disciples of the leaf! Another thread jarred loose a question that has been knocking around my skull for a while, and I would like your input on it before I proceed. As the title implies, I've gotten the crazy idea to carve a couple pipes, upon request from my brother. Not just...

    A Chinese Mystery

    Howdy all! I'm not well-traveled in these parts, but a recent gift has led me here in search of answers. To make a long story short, my younger brother recently returned from a 1-week tour of Xi'an, China with his musical ensemble. Ever-thoughtful, he brought back souvenirs for all. For me, he...

    I think she's trying to kill me

    Howdy all! Lately, I've been training in preparation for my local fire department's hiring process, the first step of which is the CPAT (physical testing). Now, strength has never been an issue for me; I lift weights every day, alternating between heavy-set legs and upper body, with a lot of...

    1000th-Post PIF: Wanderin' Man

    Howdy all! Wow, I didn't ever think I'd get to this point. Figured SWMBO would finally put her foot down and say "No more of that crazy shaving site! You can barely move in the bathroom!":lol:. I would like to thank all of the wonderful individuals I have met here who have given me so much help...

    Old-Type questions

    Howdy all! In perusing my closest local antique store lately, I came upon a couple gems: A cased H-2 travel tech (which I believe dates it from 1937? Please correct me if I'm wrong) and what I believe to be a 1906 single-ring Old-Type. I won't say what I paid, but suffice it to say that I walked...

    The straw that broke the camel's back. Oh when shall it arrive?

    Hello all. I normally try to be positive (or at least be funny in my sarcasm), but I am quickly reaching the end of my rope. I would not normally vent on-line, but the overall positivity of this forum makes me think that any comments I receive may be positive suggestions, or at least not...

    Smoked Cocktails, anyone?

    Howdy all. I wasn't quite sure whether I should put this in the Speakeasy or the Brown Leaf forum. Last night, my fiancé dragged me out to a high-end craft bar for drinks with her best friend, the occasion being her friend's birthday. Now, I am normally a solitary drinker, and when I do go to a...

    Gimme your worst

    Ok gents, I have a rather interesting question for you: can you recommend a bad leather cologne? Let me first clarify: I've seen a lot around here about cheaper leather fragrances being described as having a "burnt rubber" or "asphalt" note to them. That's what I'm looking for!:001_huh: I...

    A Family of Mama Bears- A review

    Howdy all! Recently I received a very generous PIF from GUYGARR of several Mama Bears' samples, and I'd like to give a few impressions of my experiences with them. First off, I have never used any soaps from this maker before, and I always approach a new soap (especially an artisanal one) with a...

    Sing For Your Supper Double-Header PIF!

    Howdy All! Well, the time has come to give back a little of the tremendous amount of good will I have found around here, and what better way to do that than with a PIF!:w00t: I've been doing a fair amount under the table, scouting out newbies in need of kit. Well, this time, I'm opening it to...

    Well, now I've gone and done it.

    Howdy all. As a background and disclaimer, I am normally a shavette/straight user, and have been for most of my wet-shaving career. I used a couple DEs in my early days, but they were cheap TTO's and failed to thrill me. I recently won a PIF from Groat under the condition that I planned on...

    A revelation and sincere thanks

    Howdy all. I'm not exactly new, but I had an experience yesterday that renewed my sense of awe and wonder. I recently received a very generous PIF from another member that I planned on passing on to my father. Part of it was a very nice EJ86, which my father wanted to try to get back into wet...

    Hello Gents. First off, let me start off by saying my experiences here have been easily the most positive communications I have ever had online. Everyone I have met here has been tremendously respectful, helpful, and oftentimes funny. This site really helped to cheer me up after I got fired a...

    The possible effects of vaporized Yeti Snot

    Howdy! I recently had a very interesting experience with The Snot that y'all may find humorous. I was part of the beta test for their new website and got a puck of Yeti Snot out of it. The next week, I place an order for a single sample of Columbian Necktie. The original puck got to me pretty...

    Japanese Shaving Knife Review (OR "Lather and Blood"

    Good afternoon, all! I'm here to review the Japanese Shaving knife that was so graciously PIFed to me by Mike. There was some speculation in the thread about how awful these may be; I can confirm from experience that they were justified. But, first, let me give you a rundown on my little...

    A curious development

    Howdy gents! Despite my number of posts, I haven't been here long. I've noticed a rather strange phenomenon since I started wet-shaving two years ago: my beard is growing faster!:blink: Not that it's necessarily a bad thing; I love my shaving ritual, and this just lets me do it more often...

Being a goofball, there are sure to be a few jokes thrown in the mix. Here we go! First Impressions: Right...
