A Modern Gem Style Razor -The Rocnel SE-G

Gem safety razors were contemporaries of Gillette safety razors and they competed directly against them from the early 1900's through the 1970's. Cartridge razors eventually spelled doom for Gem style razors and by the late 1970's, you could no longer find them at your corner drug store. However, enough people loved them and held onto vintage models that these same corner stores continue to carry GEM blades to this day. Flash forward 40 years and, there is still a dedicated group of Gem razor users and, local stores still carry Gem blades. Why is there still such a dedicated group...

The Creation of a Razor -Trials and Tribulations

Phil Huntsinger Razor Creation Stainless Steel Razor Manufacturing The Making of the Asylum Rx

The Creation of a Razor -Trials and Tribulations

In the summer of 2013, I set out to create a stainless steel razor that had a thin head profile and that took Artist Club blades.

Alt Innsbruck is Back in Stock

Alt Innsbruck is Back in Stock

Alt Innsbruck, one of my favorite warm weather aftershaves, is back in stock. This classic aftershave/cologne from Austria is very interesting. It has a healthy dose of menthol for a nice cooling effect and has a scent that will linger all day without being overpowering. It is a unique scent (tobacco flower) that will pique the interest of those around you. Do you like cooling aftershaves? Do you like using unique scents that set you apart from the crowd? If so, I highly recommend Alt Innsbruck. It has a permanent spot in my personal aftershave rotation.
