"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. :)
I would love…"
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…"
"Nukes arent really an attractive option for most nations. It's like having a tank in your driveway. It seems like a good idea, but its expensive to maintain just sitting there, it leaks all over, it's ugly, every cop in town drives…"
"I responded to what interested me, and I'm not sure I can even find your original post.
In any case, what I thought of his foreign policy proposals is that he'll be a tough negotiator, but I think it's too late about that…"
"Stop fussing and count your blessings. You have a lot of them. Employment with a good work/life balance, excellent pension plan, a wife who's supportive, and a child in elementary school. Your home location vis a vis work isn't…"
"I stated Nukes weren't part of the speech already. However in every follow up, he states that nuclear weapons would be on the table when it comes to them defending themselves. His speech says, basically, pay up or defend yourselves.…"
"Oh I see. In that instance I agree. Shane just had me riled up and I over stepped. I apologize for insinuating you meant something different, when you were just interpreting what I posted.
If you don't have an opinion then…"
"If it's the foreign policy speech, I just checked. There are 3 mentions of nukes: Iran mustn't get them; PDRK mustn't; and our arsenal must have "modernization and renewal," whatever that means. No mention of wanting our…"
"Actually, I didn't. I said, "I'd guess that by phrasing the question that way, you only want to hear from people who really hate Trump." Here is the way you phrased the question: "Anyone, other than Shane, have any thoughts…"
