    I'm a proud owner of polished Blackbird for couple of year. May be my most beloved razor in my collection. Friend loan me his Nodashi. I'm amazed. Different feel but amazing shaver. May be better than Blackbird. Now I'm confused. How it's possible. Somebody experienced the same?

    The Eagle is flying

    Out of curiosity I bough a vintage Chinese razor called a Flying Eagle with the original case. Wow! What a surprise shave. Very smooth and effective. In R41 territory if not better. One of the best shaves I have, and it is only the first one. The price is radicilous, about $10. I feel it's a steal.

    Review of Pereira shavery soap

    Pereira orange and cinnamon soap with activated carbon. It looks similar to SV Dolomiti. Very hard puck in deep grey colour. When you start to leather it it became brighter but the light grey colour remains. Very easy to leather and the leather is very slick and protective. Very good glide and...

    I'm in Love

    After a week with my new Gibbs Adjustable I' in love. I have a wast collection of both vintage and modern razors, from cheap to expensive. For me Gibbs combines the efficiency of theBlackbird with a smoothness of the Rockwell. What a little gem.

    First shave with Gibbs Adjustable N17

    Friend who visited Austria bring me a gift. A Benediktiner Seifenmanufaktur shave soap. I don't know much about it because their site is in German. What a performer. Ten swirls with the brush and you got sick, dense and very cushioned leather. What a surprise.

    A question about MMOC shaving

    I recently got a MMOC with Personna coated blade. First shave was wonderful, smooth and comfortable. Since the first shave I can't recreate that sensation. The shave is harsh and uncomfortable. I change to a new blade but the result is the same. No doubt the shave is good and I got BBS but the...

    Review of new slant from Manlystuff.ie

    Got three shaves with this razor and this what I think about it. First it is a beautiful razor. Mate black color. Heavy, from what I understand it's a Zamak head on brass handle. It looks like Merkur 37C but shaves much more aggressive but remains smooth. Very efficient razor indeed. Not a bad...
