    Same here, I always find the selections interesting. The razor story was particularly interesting. I got so fed up with ridiculous razor prices I went back to shaving the way my great grandfather did, with straight and double edge razors. A fascinating hobby, better shaves, and much more affordable.

    Interesting article on shaving. I’ve been wet shaving with my brush and mug since my teens and recently got a shock while replenishing my supply of Williams soap pucks. They are no longer available, locally and the other much higher priced soap in its own one time use container is on the way out too. I wonder what new even higher priced soap will be stocked? If any is at all.

  3. I’ve been buying my Williams Shaving Soap from Amazon for the last two or three years since it vanished from local drugstores. But thanks for the tip, Jon — I’m about out and will try T.J.Maxx or Marshalls.
