  Finally! Rain!
Posted by: ShadowsDad - 09-28-2020, 01:00 PM - Forum: The Front Porch - Replies (15)

Badly needed rain at that! It's been months since we had any and that's very unusual for Maine. We're in a severe drought and that too is unusual. The grass has been brown for months, people with marginal wells have no water, forest fire danger is high and Maine is 90% forest (the most in the USA). This time of year the trees lose their leaves and go dormant, but they are weeks early in doing that due to drought stress.
But I woke up this morning to water dripping off of the roof and things outside wet. It's forecast to rain for a good part of the week with up to 2.5" in some areas. We need more than that to get caught up, but any is better than nothing. Slow extended rain is exactly what we need. It soaks in rather than running off into the drainage and out to sea.

Has anyone tried Ogallala Aftershave?  I just ordered a puck of bay-rum shave soap and was curious about the AS.

  HERO brand razor problem
Posted by: cpool222 - 09-20-2020, 09:37 PM - Forum: Other SE brands. - Replies (2)

I recently bought this HERO brand SE razor, but find that when I load the blade, there is a tiny amount of play between the blade and blade stops.  I'm wondering if I could just bend the little brass colored lever forward just a bit to hold the blade tighter?

  Burham Safety Razor
Posted by: Jayaruh - 09-19-2020, 07:44 PM - Forum: Other SE brands. - Replies (9)

I found this Burham Safety Razor on eBay. Made in the USA, it indicates a July 6, 1909, patent date. First pictures are from the auction.

These next pictures are after I opened the package.

Then I got to work welcoming it into my den. I got it cleaned up with some Flitz Polish. That stuff is really good.

Then, I scanned the directions. I really like having original directions. I am looking forward to giving this razor a try.

What's wrong with people?
My minimum £5 offer (that's $6.40) was the only one.
Here's my third Hussy:

I blame the seller. The auction title was simply "Boxed Fashion Razor". It went straight under everyone else's radar.

Greetings all -- I thought I'd create this thread for those who are looking to focus and feature their Schicks during SEptember with a "Schicktember".  There's no need to exclusively focus on Schicks (which includes Eversharp, and let's include the Schick-inspired Pal Injectomatics); but when you do shave with a Schick, feel free to post it here!  My plan is to kick this off tomorrow with the first "Schick", the good Colonel's original Magazine Repeating Razor (the Type A).

  harsh first shave with Gem blades
Posted by: joelkerr - 09-01-2020, 12:42 AM - Forum: Razor Blades - Replies (12)

Hi everyone,

I find that the first (and sometimes second) shave with a new Gem SE blade is always harsh for me. I expect it, so I plan accordingly (never use a new blade before an important event, and plan to not shave for at least 3 days afterwards). After the first or second shave, I can usually get around 20 more outstanding shaves from a blade before it starts to dull a little. I find this impressive, since I have a coarse beard. 

Anyways, I'm curious if there's any way to avoid this initial harshness, that won't affect the longevity of the blade. 

Thanks,
Joel
