I have the Ryback 2 and it is a very high quality knife, but for me it is to short. If there would be a 240 mm version, I would buy it in an instant.
My 5k cracked too some time ago, but I got a new one from my vendor. He said the problem was a bad batch. So far no problems at all with the new one.
I love my Microplane!
Got my second Wester Bros. Anchor Brand today. Really nice condition, better than I anticipated from the ebay photo.
If I where in the market, I would go with the Transformer Prime. Just a well rounded package.
The new Carter Video is online for two days or so. Anyone already bought and seen it?
Best cream for me so far, Castle Forbes Lavender and Lime. A bit pricey, but just a wonderful product.
Murray Carter brings a revised version of his "Introduction to Sharpening" shortly.
You don't need a Filarmonica oder a Puma. I had a NOS #14 8/8 Filarmonica and it was a great shaver, but nothing a well made, non-hyped blade couldn't do also.
That was my collection two years...
Almost anything can work for you. That's the interesting thing. So much stuff to try and see how it works for oneself.
Let's see. I wash my face with warm water and soap, then cover my face with a hot, wet towel for about a minute. Followed by the Proraso preshave cream and after stropping my razor I face lather...
Canola oil and clarified butter. Everynow and then olive oil.

For a well made but low priced serrated knife, look at Victorinox.
Thanks. It tasted great and by far not as fatty as it may seem. The most fat just melted away. The next time I make the roast I try to make a step by step documentation, if there's interest.
Yes, it is from the belly.
Bavarian Pork Roast. Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture fresh out of the oven, so only a quick snapshot of the leftovers:
Just scored this "soon to be beauty":
Already have one of these and it is by far my best shaver.
I think it depends highly on your skin and beard if you need beard prep. In my case, I can't do without. Tough beard and sensitive skin is not a good combination. But with the right beard prep...
Both kind of strops work very well. Imho it is just a matter of preference. A paddle strop might be better for a beginner, because you can't round the edge but in the end it's up to you.
Once in a while 50 to 100 laps on leather can be a nice, gentle touch up. If that doesn't do the job, then a few laps on chromium oxide + leather and you should once again be ready for quite some...
There I have to disagree. I did various testing, lap-counts from 5 to 50 and in my experience, there is nothing 50 laps can do better thand 15 if the edge is in general good shape. The only thing a...
Congrats to this knife. Sirou Kamo has a great reputation in Germany and his knives are often recommended, especially if you are looking for thin blades with a nice profile. I personally don't like...
Thanks. Just an amazing knife. At first I thought it's a bit small for my hands, but it fits just perfect.
