    I love the scents and the prices of RazoRock soaps, but I find they're a bit lacking in slickness. If I add a little Arko to the lather--not enough to mask the scent of the RR, just a little--I get a great smelling and performing lather.

    I've spoiled myself with Feather blades so much, I now don't like most other blades.
    I like it when a razor glides over the skin like it doesn't have a blade in it, but clears the whiskers clean.
    Most blades don't do that on my face, they tug and pull brand new.
    So I took out the Wilkinson Sword blade that came with the razor, and put in a Feather.

    Yesterday I learned that an injector blade won't cut the top of my head as bad a de will.

    Ah yes Stephen, I have the same issue, normally I have found that the heavy razors are the problem. But if the razor has a heavy handle to ballance out the head, I don't have near the problems. I have had good luck with Shick Injectors, plastic or bakelite, all aluminium razors and some other light SE's.
    Glad to see I'm not the only one experiencing that. Should add that to a head shavers faq or something for new head shavers.

    That would be good sir! I do like the Schick for shaving my head, it is way easier than my blackbeauty (heavy head light handle, that makes so much sense) thanks

    Mixing Osage Rub and witch hazel w/ aloe is a winner.

    I learned that stropping the microteeth off of a sharp straight
    at the expense of some rounding of the edge,
    is the right thing to do
    especially with a razor with especially hard steel.

    Amazing what that simple little thing does for the art.
    Wonderful Gary!

    I learned that when buying shaving gear from Amazon....tick the gift box, that way they do not put a receipt in the package for the wife to find

    Mixing bits of left over shave sticks and pucks into one mug always makes for a good shaving soap.
