    No Shave November

    No shave November is a bit of a burden...I have not yet had the opportunity to use a slant razor I won during this year's auction (thanks again to Jake for the great donation!), nor have I had the opportunity to use a 'Psycho' razor that I purchased from Robert G. (Thanks again Robert!). For...

    Eversharp Schick Injector advertisement

    I enjoy listening to Vintage Radio programs. I just heard an ad for an Eversharp Schick Injector, razor and 20 blades for $1.75! The jingle was 'push pull click click.

    Choice of blade

    I have been wet shaving for around 2 years. As expected, there was a bit of a learning curve to achieve an irritation free shave, as well as a fair amount of experimentation to decide upon a blade choice. Now, looking back, I wonder if the blades really played such a significant role in the...

    Slow and sear

    Does anyone use the "slow and sear" sold by the Adrenaline BBQ company? It's advertised as a way to turn a kettle grill into a smoker, and as a way to sear meats. Thanks!

    I'm really starting to like the colder weather...the tap water for the cold water splashes after shaving is quite invigorating!

    My new shave bowl

    I purchased a mini wash tub to be used as a shave bowl. I went to metal because my past 2 ceramic bowls have broke, one due to TSA and/or the airlines, and the other due to me being aggressive making lather, according to SWMBO.

    Cartridge razor ad

    I heard a radio ad for one of the newest in the line of cartridge razors..."it cuts virtually every hair." An awesome selling point? I think not.

    Shaving cream at Downtown Disney

    They carry several types, with black oak being the most different scent. $18 per jar was too steep for me.

    Is it really cheating?

    I'm going to Disney World with the family tomorrow, and have decided to go sans DE razor, and bring the old multi blade cart along. My main fear is that the airlines could damage it. So, hopefully I do not have to turn in my man card for the week!

    Parker 24C

    I will soon be the proud owner of a Parker 24C. This will be my first use of an open comb razor. What type of learning curve should I expect going from a closed comb to an open comb? Thanks guys.

    I made my 34C more aggressive

    I made my 34C more aggressive. I added 1 shim a few weeks ago; it did not seem to make much difference. I added a second shim yesterday. I did not need to hardly do any touch up work on my neck. Has anyone ever added 3 shims?

    Gillette Slim Adjustable

    I have a K-1 Gillette Slim Adjustable. There is a piece of metal in the notched portion, just above the numbers, that can move almost to the top of the notch when the silo doors are open. Is this normal? Thank you in advance.

    Mother's Day festivities

    My sister and I surprised Mom by attending church with her, and then I grilled chicken breasts and asparagus (from my garden) wrapped in bacon, with Cowboy Caviar and tortilla chips to munch on while I was grilling.
