    shaving not on a regular basis

    For a while my job required me to shave daily, and I was getting good at getting a good close shave with my gold dollar. Now I don't shave everyday due to time constraints and other factors. So now I shave maybe twice a week. That makes for a rough shave due to the longer hair. Once I get that...

    I am getting spoiled

    I had been looking, for quite a while, for a pen that drew a nice clean dark line. I settled on a gel pen and that was ok, but still not quite what I was looking for. Then I got a pilot metro and I have found what I have been looking for all long. I am enjoying the heck out of it too. I seem to...

    some good practice?

    two fold question. 1. Looking to start using a fountain pen, but what would be a good starter. Any kind just inexpensive. Was talking with a very nice gentleman at pen paradise at the galleria, Dallas, and showed me a good starter, but out of my reach at the moment. 2. What would be a good way...

    training days

    Well I got hold of some got2b glued gel. I have tried it and, well maybe I did it wrong :blushing:, but my mustache still wants to go it's own way. How long will it take to train it? Would wax work better? As soon as can I plan on getting some firehouse or fisticuffs wax. Would appreciate a...

    why use a DE vs modern?

    Y'all have a lot of info on here. If someone could direct me to a thread perhaps about why you would want to use a DE razor as opposed to say a modern gillet mach 4 or some such razor? If it is simply financial, cheaper refills, I would try it but may have to pass. If it shaves better then you...
