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 Matthew Perry's discussion Where to start a collection? in the group Fountain Pens
"Having tried out a few hundred fountain pens, I was left unimpressed by MontBlanc. They are simply not writing tools, but rather fashion accessories that look better in your shirt pocket than in your hand. "

Saxon replied to Matthew Perry's discussion Where to start a collection? in the group Fountain Pens
"You can't go wrong with a Cross pen. I would also recommend a rather odd one out, the Lamy Persona. Lamy isn't your typical high-end pen maker, rather the opposite in fact, but they made this one exquisite gem which I would recommend very…"

Saxon replied to Izzy's discussion What board game are you playing right now? in the group Analog Gaming Society!
"Live play at KGS seems to be better for developing, but I rarely have time for live play, so it's more turn based. I've been stuck in the 10-12 kyu range for some years now, though, so that might be telling."

Saxon replied to Marvin's discussion What would be considered physically weak? in the group Exercise
"There are several different schools of training, and definitions of "strong", but I am pretty old school and think you should focus on basic, functional strength. Could you survive a week of old-fashioned farm work? Then you are…"

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…"
