Multitool Questions...

Not sure if this was ever discussed on the blog but, I am interested in purchasing a multitool. I realize there are a plethora of options available and so I was wondering what other guys thought make a good one? Or more specifically maybe my question should be what should I ask myself when selecting one? Also on that note, I'd like to hear from others who may have bought all the bells and whistles and then found out they could have bought something a lot more practical.  Does anyone find…See More

"You should not use saddle soap or mink oil on good shoes. Ideally, one brush for each color wax you use. I have a different shine cloth for each color, but I use the same horsehair brush on all of my shoes."

Shoe Shine Questions

Not sure if there was a thread started for this or not. I'm new to the shoe shine, doing it the proper way anyway, I used to just use the "instant shines." Now, Im trying to actually hone the skill of a good shine. I have a few questions though. Shine rags: Do I need a different rag for each application? For example, should I have one rag for the shine, one for the saddle soap, one for the mink oil? Should I ever launder a dirty shine rag, or do they just need replacing every so often?

Grilling -- how guilty should I feel?

Hat tip to Joe for sharing this link -- that helps me (and you?) see the error of my ways.I am a man who grills.  It's how I marginalize women.Like the author, I have to ask myself:  Have I become some sort of monster?http://www.slate.com/articles/double_x/doublex/2015/07/grilling_feminism_and_masculinity_a_grand_unified_theory.htmlSee More
