"I use an open comb Merkur, and I like my results. If I get lazy with it, I'll get a nick or two, but none usually, just a close shave. I've never used another DE before, as I only made the switch a few months back."
"My gillette old feels about as aggressive as my tech, but it doesn't block with lather as quickly. If you apply too much pressure you might get the skin into the grooves and burn your face a bit, but without weight there shouldn't be a…"
"I switched back to DE saftey razors awhile back after finding my grandfather's Gillettesin a box one day.
After using both the 1960's Superspeed and the 1920's open-comb short handled safety razor, I find that the open comb allows for…"
"I switched to a current production open comb 15c Merkur from my mid 1960s vintage Gillette Adjustable a month ago and I found I got superior shaves with next to no nicks and I have not had any trouble with razor burn since the switch over."
"We live pretty remotely surrounded by several hundred acres of woodland, during the summer we may have some neighbors around the lake but otherwise we are the only full time residents so I feel pretty comfortable in boxers and a t-shirt whether…"
"I'm one of those "shorts year round" kind of guys, don't even think I own a pair of pants, I just have a thing about anything on my legs. Hiking, hunting, shoveling snow, I even wore tuxedo shorts for my wedding. :)

My wife picked me up a 1920s vintage Gillette as an anniversary gift this week, I've been using a Murkur for the past 14 or 15 years, it was my first experience with an open comb razor and I noticed a huge difference, much more so than I expected.First of all, the shave seemed considerably closer and although it didn't draw any blood I had quite a bit of stinging when I applied after shave.

"I have 2 of those polaroid 100 land cameras, they just stopped making the film this year. There was talk of another company picking up the rights to produce the film so many people bought up remaining supplies to tide them over. They are wonderful…"
"I have a little Stihl MS 210 with a 16" bar. Works great however I wish the chains had a couple more teeth. Sharpen the chains on the saw and only by hand. I've had a lot of practice at this as I worked as a landscaper for 8 years and we…"
"Thanks for the comments it is really appreciated. I did mean physically sick, I always go to the doctor but they can't seem to figure out what is wrong (I get bad sinus problems, difficulty breathing, random back pains, chest pains) but…"
It's not even Halloween, and...I'm already seeing a lot of internet "business" posts about retailers not opening on Thanksgiving Day, and a bunch on which store will be open on Thanksgiving Day. That's the US Thanksgiving Day.Anybody else old enough to remember when the retailers open on Thanksgiving were liquor stores and Standard Oil stations? I mean in states without blue laws.See More
