    Blade “chatter” - what does this mean?

    Take a lid to a tin can and pit it in a vice about 3/4 of it clamped. Take a toothpick and flick the edge of the blade. Note the sound. Scale it down to blade and whisker size and imagine 50 toothpicks flicking and minute vibration that accompanies it. I have decently sensitive hearing due a...

    They Don’t Understand

    All of my close relatives that I show my razor to didn't get it. Then I let them shave with it. Eash of them now how one. The Tech needs no convincing.

    TWELFTH ANNUAL "One Blade in February" Challenge - 2021 Edition

    Imagine my luck! I found this thread just now and learned I am already qualified. I started February with my favorite blade BiC Chrome Platinum and I am still using it in my back up Gillette Tech (in my avatar). It will easily last the entire month.

    Cold water shaving

    DE shaving is my spa like experience 3x a week. Cold water isn't part of the spa like experience for me in the autumn, winter, spring months. Summer I indulge in a cool water rinse which is refreshing during the hotter season.

    Geofatboy - See how quickly he shaves!!!

    I don't know what WFIF means. Plumber, electrician..makes little difference what he did still quite a change of vocation to a YouTuber who sells shaving supplies. Its been over a year since I have seen his videos seems like a nice guy.

    I'll never forget my first...

    Wilkinson sword plastic razor - YES Wilkinson sword blades - HECK YES Wifes leg shaving cream (happened to be men's gel) - it was the only thing available to get me started.

    Geofatboy - See how quickly he shaves!!!

    GeoFatBoy taught me everything I needed to know to attempt my first DE shave after 30+ years of electric shaving only. Respect for the blade was and is always foremost in my mind. His technique is consistent which is key. He is equally as skilled at SE shaving. He was a plumber before he...

    What razor cured your RAD?

    My RAD was very short lived. I tried a Superspeed, then a Tech...and I was done. I obtained a backup Tech and have been more than happy knowing the search and acquisition is over.
