Hi there! I am a 46 year old man from Norway who has been struck by the realization that there are more boys than men out there, even at my age! I was also struck by the realization that my own…Continue

Saxon replied to Douglas Aldrich's discussion Trouble with straight razor in the group Real Shaving
"4k is OK for a kitchen knife, but not sufficient for a face razor. 8k-12k-16k-maybe even 30k would be far better. You should also finish up by stropping it. Do also check your shaving technique. Axe salesmen of old managed to shave with the axes…"

Chuck Knight replied to Saxon's discussion My current dilemma in the group Timepieces
"Sorry, it was a Citizen Campanola.  Told you I wasn't sure of the spelling.  Here is a current photo of one of their round dialed watches, luxury quartz by the way with a perpetual calendar.  It's Citizen's equivalent…"

Jesse James Piatte Jr replied to Saxon's discussion My current dilemma in the group Timepieces
"I agree with Chuck in every way. If the 4 watches are the ones you are set on getting go with the Grande Seiko. Think not expensive but function and look. I would also look at value lines, Oris, Hamilton, Longines, Etrna, Ball. The breitling does…"

Chuck Knight replied to Saxon's discussion My current dilemma in the group Timepieces
"I absolutely love the Grand Seikos, their dials and finish work are second to none.  Absolutely exquisite.  Since I am partial to complications, I would choose the one with the reserve de marche, but that's an issue of personal…"

My current dilemma

On the fourth day of Christmas my true love gave to me...No, actually, I have to choose. And pay most of it myself, but it stems from a generous gift when we married on boxing day.It might be that the two on the right are right outside my price bracket. But what I am looking for is a manly watch, which by my standards (not…See More

Saxon replied to Andrew McDermott's discussion Whetstones Or Sharpening Stones for a Straight Razor in the group Real Shaving
"I would recommend not just one, but several stones of increasing fineness. My suggestion is something in the neighbourhood of 1000-4000-8000-12000-16000-30000 Followed by linen strip and then hide strop. You will eventually also need a lapping…"

Saxon replied to Brian Splash's discussion To hone yourself or send away in the group Real Shaving
"I use 1K, 4K, 8K, 12K, 16K, 30K ... but the point of using a progression is that while you in theory could hone the straightedge to perfection on a 30K, it would take forever and a half life. So you do bigger pieces of work with a rougher stone…"

Saxon replied to Brian Splash's discussion To hone yourself or send away in the group Real Shaving
"I am a neophyte, but I use a whole range of stones, starting with 1000 and ending with 30000, whereupon the various strops take over. Is this a rational decision? Not really. If I was looking for practicality, I would probably not even use a…"

Saxon replied to Saxon's discussion Rebirth and the Bible in the group Gentlemen Apologists
"Thank you for a thoughtful reply, Bryan. I often hear people cite "apocryphal" or other writings that probably should have been in the Bible as grounds for such a belief. I have yet to come around to checking this out, but thought this…"

Saxon replied to Saxon's discussion Rebirth and the Bible in the group Gentlemen Apologists
"Thank you for your reply, Cisco. I do not know, but have only heard by rumour, so I wondered if more knowledgeable gentlemen than I would happen to know. As for the belief in Hell, I do read the odd bit of theology, and notice that there is a…"

Bryan Maloney replied to Saxon's discussion Rebirth and the Bible in the group Gentlemen Apologists
"There is no support for reincarnation in the Bible. The only verse that has been dragged out of context to spuriously "support" such a doctrine is John 8:58, "Jesus said to them, 'Truly, truly, before Abraham's coming, I…"

Benjamin Nelson replied to Marvin's discussion What would be considered physically weak? in the group Exercise
"First and foremost, don't ever worry about how much weight you can put up. It will eventually come if you keep at it. Second, the only way you ate going to be successful in the gym is to go in with a plan. You don't have to have a notebook…"
