    Default Meet up October 27 - 29 Wisconsin

    There will be a meet at my place on the last weekend of October.

    I live outside of Racine about 300 miles from Utopian or 25 miles from the Illinois line and 4 miles from Lake Michigan


    There are a number of motels within 3 miles of my house. It should not be a problem getting a room.

    All wet shavers will find others sharing their passion. We will do the usual things of

    Honing
    Scaling
    Pinning
    Grinding
    Restoring
    Stropping
    Shaving
    Lathering

    Bring your gear to show, trade or sell.

    There will be a Real Man Shave contest. I have acquired some lye soap. Bring your own brush.

    PM me if you can attend. Directions and such will be sent in PMs.

    I normally stop shaving during deer season but I will make an exception for this contest! I would assume that we should provide our own razors as well?

    Definitely use your own razor.

    This soap was made in the 60s by an little old lady. It still has the lye smell.

    Dave,

    I'm just wondering if we all will be carpooling in your Suburban or do we all need our own directions to the nearest hospital?

    I'm sure looking forward to this trip and meeting everyone.

    I'm pretty sure that you can add to the list a non-member, Paul F.

    And just an FYI, so far he only has two razors, so he might be interested in buying a couple.

    This sounds very cool!

    I got to check the calendar for sure but .......

    I have the blade that I made at Charlies and I stil haven't figured out a satisfying answer to the scale question.
