  First SE Shave - The Real SOTD?!
Posted by: Arun - Yesterday 14:28 - Replies (6)

Just finished my first SE Shave using a 1912 Eveready with a Gem blade and Jaboman Mountain. Best shave ever!

No sight of blood or any burn! BBS!

It is like an evangelical moment. I read lots of posts here. I started in June,so I thought it was too early to get into SE shaves but with a mongoose on the way I just felt I had to. And reading Paul (pjgh), NorfolkDick,antdad and others made me take the plunge.

Thanks guys.

I have a gold coloured Gillette aristocrat adjustable razor that is in mint condition. Its still in its original box. I am selling it, as urgently need to raise some money for a emergency vet for my sick horse. If anyones interested in buying it, please let me know, and make a sensible offer. It comes with original case and box. This is only for sale as I need the money.

  What's your favourite straight razor and soap/cream combo?
Posted by: Nishy - 23-10-2014 17:45 - Replies (5)

As the title suggests what is your favourite? For me it's my filarmonica sub cero or japanese FONE razor with icoloniali cream. Smooth razors and the cream ticks all the boxes, beautiful scent and doesn't over lather allowing for the right contact.

What's yours?

  Schick NZ ad's

I don't know if anyone has seen these but I thought they were quite clever and worth sharing. Schick in New Zealand obviously trying to win back business with their Gone Feral campaign.

  Acquisitions w/c Monday 20th - Sunday 26th October '14 incl.

Allow me step in and open this thread today.

On Saturday, following another few (intense) months of trying tens of pieces:

[Image: DSC_0211_zpsb123f370.jpg]
Patek Philippe Calatrava 5196J, just because simplicity is timeless.

My second Patek, couple of weeks short of the first six months after acquiring my first one (5712/1A). Never thought I'd do a second one so soon.

Plus, last Friday, picked up my custom Pilot strap (IWC OEM alligator w/ OEM deployant buckle) for the Archimede Pilot 45 Handwound I have. Truly excellent work from Jason (jns-strap.com, I paid S$350).

...and this one for my sis, fresh from my trip back from Perth this past Thursday.

And here in Singapore, this past Saturday:

Last but not least, a Col. Conk brush together with an American Crew pre-shave oil. Both at a very nice and quite full with all kinds of wet shaving stuff, shop in Perth, WA.

Carry on!
