    For just 3 a month you could support lost and lonely Bench Baby's left unused on Honemeister's bench's.

    This is Robeson... his owner didn't want want him because he had a little too much hone wear... He was put in a corner of the bench to sit in his own rust... until con16721 gave him a new home... and now he gets all the love and touch ups he needs.

    con16721 takes him out for a shave every third day and to mix with the shaving soaps and strops.

    sitting in that corner he may not have made it, but now he'll be around for another 80 years.


    gssixgun, you never stop givin' From the picture it looks like most of my collection wouldn't make your website either.

    snap up the offer con, its a generous offer.

    gssixgun, I can't thank you enough for such a generous offer. Of course I would be happy to give a lonely razor some face time! This place is truly amazing. Again, I can't thank you enough.

    By the way I snatched up that Shumate barber hone that I posted on here yesterday for under ten dollars on ebay. woot! I'll post pictures of it once I get it and before I put any kind of blade to it. Thanks again to everyone for their advice!

    Hey CON16721!

    I would recommend trying what I did. Go to the local barber shops and ask them if they have any old barber hones that they aren't using. If they say yes, ask them if they would like to sell them! I got a very nice Swaty for only $15! I also purchased a very nice vintage strop for the same price! Both from the same barber!

    That's a great idea. Next time I go in for a hair cut, I'll talk to the guys about it.

    Thanks to Glen for sending me a fantastic shaver. I got it in the mail yesterday and shaved with it last night.

    First off, wow. That thing is scary sharp. I tried the HHT on it and it simply fell away without making a sound. It was downright impressive. I don't think the first razor that I bought came close to this sharp.

    However, as we all know, the real test is the shave test.

    I can honestly say that last night's shave was the closest, most comfortable shave I have ever had with any razor ever. There was much less pull on my face than my other razor, and the hair was easily lopped off. The crazy part was that it was that close on the first pass! I never knew my face could be that smooth.

    In fairness, I think I may have dulled the edge on my first razor a bit considering I bought a very low quality strop to begin with that was a bit uneven. It was a rookies mistake for sure.

    So again, thank you Glen for your generosity and a great shave!
