    FS Weber DLC DE safety razor

    This is for sale not trade. I am the original owner. Purchased in 2012. Includes the Weber Classic handle and comes with original box and instruction card. The DLC coating has worn quite a bit where the handle attaches to the baseplate. This is common based on other photos I've seen of this...

    Knife sharpening help

    I cook a lot and I'm tired of taking my knives to the sharpening guy and paying for something I'm sure I can learn to do myself. I've seen some videos on sharpening with various stones and it looks simple enough. I have some Wusthof Classic knives which I think are good. What do the members...

    DR Harris Windsor bath soap

    I've been hoping that they would make it. Unwrapped a fresh bar of something else just before it arrived so I'll have to wait a bit to try it. It is definitely heavily scented with Windsor.

    Knot Change- need advice

    I have brush that had a synth knot that I didn't like and I steamed it out. The TGN Finest I bought fits snugly but the loft is going to be to high. What's the easiest way to bore the hole a little deeper (say 4-5mm) and perhaps widen the opening one mm?

    RazoRock Son of Zeus and San Valentino

    I received my order from Joe today and I have these soaps in hand. The Son of Zeus scent does indeed resemble Terre D'Hermes and it smells fantastic! It also seems stronger than most of the RR soaps I've used. The San Valentino also smells quite nice, with enough lemon to keep it from being too...

    Scuttle friendly soaps

    I have been a dedicated face latherer for as long as I have been wet shaving but I recently purchased a DB1.5 scuttle. So far I've found many of my soaps are drying out when I lather them in there, even with just warm tap water in the scuttle. Does anyone have any tips for soaps that lather well...

    New arrival from Rudy Vey

    I won a Rudy Vey brush in the charity auction and I really liked his work. After trying my first Shavemac brush I knew I was going to get Rudy to make a brush with one of their knots for me. The tiger striped handle is hard to come by but fortunately Rudy still had some of the material. The knot...

    Pelikan nib help

    I recently purchased an older second hand M400. I thought it had a plain medium nib, but it has an oblique medium and I don't care for it. I've thought about a nib change but it seems to be stuck. Does anyone have a suggestion for getting it free? Failing that, could it be sent to someone and...

    Weber DLC Vs. ARC

    Is there anyone here who has both that has a preference for one or the other? I have DLC with the classic handle that is pretty much my daily shaver. I want to try the bulldog handle but I'm thinking about just getting another complete razor with the ARC head.

    Hello and thanks from a newbie

    I've been lurking here for some time. I've been wetshaving for more than 15 years but was always frustrated with the shaves I got from cartridges. In the end I grew a beard and wore it for years. I decided that I like being clean shaved and in my search for something better I found this place...
