    Grelot not closing properly

    Gentlemen, I bought a Grelot (bone handle) around June I think. I had to send it back as the blade was bouncing back half way through when closing it. The sharp edge was not exposed but it was very annoying, and quite dangerous... I received another one, I’m sure it’s not the same as the blade...

    Very first shave with a SR

    After quite a long and painful learning curve with a Feather AC shavette, I finally pushed the button and acquired a straight razor. I hesitated for months, as the honing and stropping process has been constantly putting me off. Can't even remember how many times I had a SR in my shopping...

    Wolfman WR2 1.15 SB vs 1.15 OC

    Hello there, Hope you’re all very well. I‘ve read many posts about the WR2 head and the insignificant difference between the OC and the SB. They appear to be VERY different for me. The more I use the SB, the more I find the OC to be a lot more efficient and easier to shave with. Weird enough...

    DR Harris Sandalwood

    Is Wolfman still a one-man-job razor?

    I noticed that it became quite an easy process to subscribe for a Wolfman razor, the orders seem to be confirmed a couple of months later. Knowing myself how difficult it used to be to buy a Wolfman and taking into account the huge demand out there, I’m wondering if it’s still only James who is...
