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 haven't, but it seems pretty sophisticated.

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

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

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?
