    Neil
    Neil

    Neil Miller's death leaves an empty spot in my life.

    Emerson said, "A friend may well be reckoned the masterpiece of nature." How true as I look back on my long distant friendship with Neil.

    Emerson also said, "The only way to have a friend is to be one." That, too, was a blessing, for Neil made it possible for me by extending his hand in friendship.

    The death of a friend is always hard. That he was an artist and a master craftsman makes it even harder. And so it is for me with the death of Neil.

    In talking about his colorful life, he once told me that in most things there is no simple answer. Yet the one answer of which he was sure was seeing the hand of man in human works, as he put it.

    If you were not here you missed one of the best times ever. I can not think of a single person who did not have a blast at the recent Asheville meetup. If you have not seen the pictures jump over to the forum thread so you can see all the things that happened. This turned out better than the team had hoped for.

    Since the razor made by Joe Chandler and donated by Birnando is such a special donation I am going to have a contest for you to try and then possibly win this prize which is listed below. Oh! and this razor is shave ready.

    This contest is going be a lathering contest. This was done some time ago and had a lot of interest and contestants.

    The idea of this lathering contest is to come up with different ways to lather your face. You need to be very creative with the idea of making it humorous, amusing, interesting and entertaining. You can do this wherever you are brave enough to do so such as in a public place, at a park, in your home, just wherever you think would be a really cool place to lather your face.

    Ink Slingers

    So far so good on the red. The only color that faded was the white. I don't hold white for some reason. Headed back in a year or two for the other half

    Is this a thuringian?

    Photo the sides and ends, is it soft? What are you making the slurry with?

    One side bevel set question

    I use a compromise method. If I want to avoid hone wear and need to set a new bevel, especially when using my chosera 1k, I will use a layer of tape.

    One side bevel set question

    So first, to better answer your original question, post some photos of your razor, both sides as close as you can. I am not sure what it is you are describing.

    Pipe of the Day

    Well thanks for the good advise. I will have to go to smokingpipes.com and look around. I may have to get a smoking jacket to go along with it.
