    To the SRP community, thank you all for your support over the years. Many of you were among our early adopters, and offered helpful critiques and words of encouragement along the way.

There are no words to adequately express our gratitude to those members. Thank you.

    I bought a Hydra razor earlier this year. It's a great, high quality razor that I love using.

    I've had a Hydra for a couple of years, some opinions at that time were a little negative, (the wedge in the scales isn't tapered, the razor therefore can't possibly be any good)

    I decided to see for myself and ordered one. The lead time was a little long as Scott was not well. However, turn up, it did. The razor was and still is very good.

    I understand that the scale wedge thing has also been addressed.

    I love my Leviathan. Great shaver that holds an edge for a long time.

    I've not seen a straighter blade. Bevels even from side to side and heel to toe. That's quality!

    We're hosting a celebratory get-together/fundraising event for the Movember Foundation at Portland Shave Shop on Saturday, November 11th. There will be free food and drink, and we're donating all of the proceeds from Barber services that day to raise funds for men's health initiatives. You can find more details about the event and schedule an appointment with one of our Barbers at the facebook event page.

    We will also be donating proceeds from honing services to the Movember Foundation, so if you've been putting it off now is a great time to get it taken care of! Click here to go to our honing services page.

    We hope to see some of you on Saturday!
