I was asked by a fellow wet shaver how the Supply 2.0 compares to a vintage schick injector. In all honesty it had been a while since I had used the vintage Schick injector and I recall using the blade that it came in the case with. Not sure using the old blades gave the razor a fair shake so I decided to put a new blade into the vintage Schick this morning and see what its all about.

It has been a LONG time since my last post. Thats what having twins, and changing jobs will do. I miss writing my blog posts, but I have been enjoying making Youtube videos and growing my channel.
Now I cannot say how often I will be writing full posts, but I do plan on adding a section for coupon codes, links to my affiliate sites(companies I support), and possibly big sales and other things to do with the wet shaving world. I’ve recently joined up with a few places and am a part of their affiliate programs. What this means is that if you want to buy something from one of these companies and use my link I get a percentage of the sales. No, its not a pyramid scheme and the prices are the same as using their regular website links. It is just a way of the companies getting some advertising and we the affiliate getting some incentive(%of sale). So it helps support both my channel/blog as well as the company. I just want to let you all know that. That being said I am not going to shill and only use these companies in all my pots etc. Its just something to help my channel/blog out as well as sometimes I will hopefully be able to get you all discount codes from these companies. Right now I am affiliated with Truefitt and Hill, West Coast Shaving, SUPPLY, shareasale.com, and Rockwell Razors. I hope this can help out my subs as much as it can help me grow my channel and bring in new products to review.
As of right now I do have a coupon code for SUPPLY which gets you %15 off your entire purchase on their site. This offer is a limited time.
Also right now West Coast Shaving is having a 25% off sale on all West Coast Shaving branded shaving supplies. Also use code : SITELAUNCH for free domestic shipping in the USA

We are blessed in this community to have many great artisans who make soaps, brushes, balms, leather goods and everything to do with shaving. One guy that I have been a big fan of since I started wet shaving is Dillon Fretz of Fretzwerk Bespoke Razor Restoration. And now I that I have one of my razors restores I can see what all the fuss is about.
With impending pandemonium set to ensue in the coming days I have had to ask myself one question when it comes to shaving…. WHAT SHOULD I USE? With roughly 10-14 shaves left before the arrival of identical twin boys I know I need to really appreciate my few remaining shaves where I can take my time and enjoy the entire experience. If you only had a few shaves left what would be your criteria??
Over the past year or more Wet Shavers around the world have stepped up numerous times to help out fellow wet shavers and their families. And I have always found it to be simply inspiring to see our community come together. Sadly a major forest fire hit Fort McMurray Alberta and the entire town has nearly been destroyed. What our Canadian Wet Shavers did next truly has me so proud to be both a member of the wet shaving community, but also Canadian and a member of the Canadian Wet Shavers Facebook group. Read More
I love shaving brushes. Badger, boar, synthetic, you name it I like it. I love the unique handles, and I love the classic handles as well. Until recently my Holy Black brush was arguably the most unique handle that I own and by far got the most questions about it. However my newest brush is soooo BADA$$ that I don’t know if its even possible for the badassery to increase!!
Fine Accoutrements has been a massive player in the artisan shaving world since they burst onto the scene not too long ago. Initially, Fine was an aftershave maker and fans fell in love with the offerings. In the past year Fine has released, shaving bowls, brushes, a lightweight slant and now Fine American Blend shaving soap…….Now can this American Blend cut it North of the border here in Canada???
In my previous post I had mentioned a couple of Mail Calls that I was expecting. Well lets just say our postal system in Canada is less than consistent and combining that with customs makes for a crap shoot to say the least……..Does shipping irritate anyone else? Read More
