    Timeless Bronze Pass Around Tour

    I received the razor in the mail today. It was one day early and on my birthday! It was late for my birthday shave, but I'll lather up again tomorrow and give that .78 plate a go. Thanks to @juno for this great opportunity.

    The Woes of GFT Eucris

    I have GFT Eucris soap and until recently had the same experience. I start with a relatively dry brush and load for a long time, then add water slowly and lather on the puck. Performance isn't the best, but you'll get amazing smelling lather and lingering scent.

    Back on B&B after several years away. What's new?

    Welcome back! I l, too, have recently returned from an extended break from B&B. The biggest changes I have noticed are the ones previously mentioned. The only thing I have noticed is there are a lot more brushes to choose from. Aside from that, I would echo a lot that has been posted already.

    Wallet suggestion please

    Another vote for Saddleback. I have had one for 5 years and it is still good as new. They're motto is they'll be fighting over it when you're gone, or something to that effect. It's true.

    Still in. Merkur Futur set to 6 Tiger Klar Kabinett CC Venture A near BBS. The last time I used the Tiger blade, the shave was pretty rough. I think it may be because it was in the PAA Alpha Ecliptic razor. It worked like a charm in the Futur. Overall, a good shave. I give it a 9.

    Paper routes

    I had a paper route with my twin brother from age 11 - 15. In addition, I parlayed the route into mowing lawns for some paper customers and worked in my dad's laundry. I would echo a lot of the sentiments already said. I learned a lot of valuable life lessons, the most important of which was to...
