    I am a wet shaver aficionado since 5 years or so.
    My collection includes:
    Feather AS-D1
    Feather AS-D2
    Mongoose SE Stainless Steel
    Ikon Slant
    Get Supply
    Blackland Sabre lvl 1 & 2
    One Blade Hybrid
    Timeless DE SB .68 Stainless
    Feather AC straight
    Karve DE "B" & "C" plates -just received today
    I think my RAD is satisfied for the time being. I want to experiment with my new acquisitions which include "OneBlade", Blackland, Get Supply, and Timeless. I believe I will be busy for quite some time. I am very taken with the Blackland Sabre.
    I also use the Gilette Guard from time to time when I need a quick shave or for travel.

    Welcome from Alabama....the Heart of Dixie. Glad to have you aboard and a lot of enablers lurk in the shadows. Oh yeah...RAD is never satisfied!

    I was introduced here by a member from whom I bought something on EBay: “bigwaverazor”.

    Welcome to the forum.

    I work in Easton as well and believe that I sold a razor to you a few years ago and delivered it to the Cigar place in Forks near Martin Guitar?

    I think it was either a Feather Stainless or an old Ikon razor similar to the Gillette Old Type when Greg was still machining them himself. It was a number of years ago and the details are fuzzy.

    Probably correct. I have both the Feather As_D1 and AS-D2 and I have a couple of Ikon razors as well. I think the Feather was one of my first premium razors. The AS-D! is currently up on Ebay.

    Welcome to TSD Arthur! Glad you brought your experience with you. From the list I'm guessing you are into Modern razors.
    There's a place here where folks work on their technique - The 30 Day Rule / Focus Group. I recognize many of the razor names, but have only had a test run on a Blackland Blackbird. I lean toward Vintage Gillettes but a razor is a razor. The guys in the 30 Day Crew may be collectively proficient in the use of some or all on you list. Feel free to drop in and ask questions, or hang out for a month to improve your shaves. Besides shaving we talk about family, work, hobbies, BBQ, and the occasional shenanigans.

    There are a couple members that enjoy a stick. Do you carry pipes & pipe tobacco? That's my choice. We have discussions about both.

    Hope you find something to interest you here!

    We carry a limited amount of pipe tobacco. Mostly we are premium cigars and a cigar bar and restaurant. A few pipes as well.
