The Finer Things in Life
 
This is a thread to discuss some of our other passions. You name it, cigars, pipes, alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages, food, knives/guns, books, clothing, pens, watches, etcetera. Anything goes as long it's upscale/refined in nature.

My Current Shaver:

I haven't gotten into sharpening it with the stones, I send it out for that, but obviously it has to be stropped prior to use. In a world where everything is faster, faster, faster, it's almost like meditating to slow it down for a couple minutes and perform a quality shave.

Anyone ever use ice substitutes to prevent dilution, such as the Whiskey Stones?

Whisky Stones - Soapstone "Ice Cubes" for Whiskey Lovers

I've always tended to stick to the 2-cube max rule, but I wouldn't be opposed to using these.

I see the "bacon scorpion" post has been removed, in good taste as this is the "finer things in life" thread. :tup:

We know, Frost was trying to keep the thread from getting out of hand too quickly, we are, after all, known for derailing threads with our offbeat sense of humor :p

Any talc users? There are only a few brands most people would consider "refined," such as Clubmans, J&J, Borotalco, Caswell-Massey. Any others you guys use or recommend?
