Gem Micromatic Razor?

Young'un replied to Max Z's discussion Not enlightened enough...
"Personal recommendation is to start with authors that will help you become a better learner. In my short experience, half of being enlightened is the ability to pull information from a subject that is not simply what was written, i.e. understanding…"

Mongoose replied to Christopher Chmiel's discussion I want to grow a beard
"While it does depend on the skin type, I did read something which made a lot of sense: Beard oils are for the skin. They are too thin to do much for the beard (the individual shafts of hair funnel the oil down to the skin, which absorbs it). These…"
