    Re-Deployment PIF

    Assuming you will ship to FPO I am in. For me the best thing about being in the military is how much you can appreciate everything you have back home because of the deployments. Not having all the things you take for granted every day makes you appreciate it more once you finally get it back...

    Repurposed metal travel case w/ pics

    So I have always wanted to have a travel or storage kit that stood out, but the issue is you can't really buy something pre-made that someone else doesn't already have, so I made my own. I found the metal box at an antique mall, and I cut out the foam with my hobby knife, I think it looks pretty...

    Irritation in the same place

    Ok I have been easing myself into all aspects of wet shaving, and have recently decided I'm going to stop using cartridge all together, as I finally got my gillette se. The shaves are super smooth but I notice I am getting irritation on my neck in the same place every time, I have mapped my face...

    My first straight arrived today.

    Got my first cut yesterday as a matter of fact, just a small one on the cheek. Had just gotten my razor back from being honed by Jon. Guess we know it was sharp right? I'm not likely to be leaving my skin loose in the near future.

    Looking for 1st straight razor

    Well there are several options if you want a straight razor. The three most popular options as I've seen so far are these; Larry at has a sight unseen razor that is a good deal for beginners, I have not dealt with WD but hear nothing but good things. The sight unseen won't be the...

    Found my grandpa's old razors

    There is a Art Of Shaving in Kansas City. It might have something for cleaning them up, if not at least they have the other thinks you will need if you plan on straight shaving.

    first straight just showed up.

    I literally just got my razor back from using this exact offer. Great experience, razor came back absolutely shave ready and Jon was a pleasure to deal with. Would highly recommend.

    Straight Razors Goods in PR

    Wow. Wish I had that kind of luck, I can barely even find a straight in an antique store where I'm at. Let alone a fili.

    First straight shave

    I am also new to straight shaving and I had head about switching hands before my first shave. In my opinion it's less awkward and even more so since I'm not used to doing it any other way. Also what is the purpose of rubbing the alum on after the shave but before the a/s?

    Do I need to lap my hones?

    New to straight shaving, also new to honing. I sent one razor off to be honed, and am having another shipped to me that is also shave ready from a hobbyist here. The second while shave ready is going to be for all purposes my test dummy for learning how to hone. But before I get there I want to...
